What did you say?

Scene 1
Me: Sweetie, why are you throwing away your socks?

Husband: Because they’re broken.

Me: Broken? How did they break?

Scene 2
Husband: Can you remember me to buy bread?

Me: Okay.

Scene 3
Husband: Those people own me money.

Me: What people?

Scene 4
Me: I haven’t got any more fazzoletti in my purse.

Husband: That’s because Coco keeps bringing them from your purse.

Translation: the longer I am married to an Italian the better I understand him and the worse my English gets…FYI, fazoletti are those little packages of tissue that Coco goes crazy for and she does steal them from my purse!

PS: Can you please close the light? I’m going to bed. Buonanotte (which can be one or two words)
