morning in "Monte-P"

Viccolo, originally uploaded by plastictaxi.

I wake up and Bea is getting dressed before she goes to the Italian language class she takes every morning. It is a little early for her to go, I think. She is thinking about breakfast: the choices are a bit of cereal and melon here at home, or coffee and croissant in a cafe by the school.

“Maybe I'll just have a cappuccino and a pasta, like they do here.”

“A pasta?” ...I'm still waking up.



“A pasta?” she says, mocking my tone.

“PASTA? ... PASTA pasta?”

“Shut up” she says, because I am getting repetitive.

“But... we're talking about a croissant here, aren't we?”


“And they call it a PASTA?”


“But don't they call Pasta Pasta?”


“But why would they call a croissant a pasta?”

Bea gets up and waves her arm as she moves to the bathroom.

“Because it looks like a big pasta to them.”


that's hilarious.
