The pet store behind the market has a parakeet who screeches “Ciao!!” when you walk in the door. He’ll say other stuff in Italian, too. And for some reason, this impresses the heck outta me.
Vaguely similar: today, a vespa cruised past at quite a decent clip, carrying an old man (a veritable geezer, to be clear), the crook of his walking cane wrapped around his neck, and staff clutched between his knees. We wagered he must’ve been clockin’ an honest 25-30mph, and that over cobblestones, to boot. Bello!
