An Italian friend ( Thanks Cristiano, you're so cool ) sent me this :


- You wear a cross and hang a rosary in your car...but haven't seen the church since your confirmation.

- You're in your 20s and still pronounce it "sangwich"

- You grew up thinking that no stores had fixed prices by watching your Nonno try to bargain at the Grocery store.

- You were surprised when you saw a bottle of wine at the store.....and it wasn't homemade.

- You were beaten at least once with a wooden spoon... and had your mom's sandals thrown at you if you tried to get away.

- You weren't allowed to date, go to the movies, go to school dances or talk on the phone.....but your brother was!

- You were taller than your grandma by the time you were 7.

- Your nonna's sofa was designed with plastic covering.

- You've got at least one empty coffee tin in your garage with nails in it.....go have a look!

- Your nonna makes sure the espresso is ready even before you've started eating.

- Your cantina has enough canned food to last for the next 5 years.

- You started shaving at 12 and had breasts at 10......and so did your brother!

- Your dad can't read or write...but becomes Einstein after listening to the news.

- The same Panettonne and bottle of Cognac has been passed around to your relatives as a Christmas gift for the past 3 years.

GOSH...Look at all the good stuff we grew up with.
Let's Keep the Italian Culture Alive!!! Send this to all the "WOPS" you know!

P.S : I don't know what's a " WOPS ".

That matches my description
. A wop is a derogatory term for an italian.

You know you're Italian when you're playing soccer in a tight jersey and wet long hair!!!

You know you're Italian when you become league champion by scoring less goals than the games you play!!!

You know you're Italian when you wake up besides Dutch blondes every weekend!!!
