For me, it is Valentine’s Day Due. And, although I have never been a huge fan of V-Day, having it come twice in one year isn’t a bad thing. Pep had to work last night, so we decided to postpone our romantic dinner, and the first Valentine’s Day in 5 years that we have actually been in the same country, and cook together tonight. And, when I say cook “together,” I really mean he will cook, and I will drink wine and watch. It is ok – he likes it that way!
But, apart from it being a double play day, hence celebrating Valentine’s Day twice, it was just a good day.
Peppe and I went to breakfast at the best little bar around Santa Maria and Viale Isonzo, Tiramisu, where I saw the owner, who happens to be the dad of an Italian “friend.” We chatted a few minutes – and I understood almost everything he said to me.
Then, I went to get my hair cut. My last attempt in Catanzaro was a mini-nightmare, with about 3 inches too much landing on the floor at my feet. But, not this time. I went somewhere new, and I loved it. The people were so nice, and you know what? They were all Italian women. Well, actually two of them were Italian “girls” who were only 15 and 16, but they were nice. And, I had a fairly decent understanding there, too.
