They Seemed Normal to Me

Uncle Vince is second from the left. Youse needs to knows this for the Play.

They Taught Me Everything I Know

     I was an only child--odd for an Italian family--but my cousin Gary was, too, so we grew up sorta like brothers. 

     The Uncles told Gary stuff I never got to hear. I knew it was about girls, and since Italians talk with their hands, I had a pretty good idea of what they were saying  

     The cooking was sort of a sporting event. A lot of it was done to impress the uncle's dates, wives, or their mother, Sophia--my grandmother.  Mothers are very important to Italian men. The women come and go, but mothers are there until the end.

     Italian men marry their mothers and chase every other woman.

     My Grandpa Carlo said it never changed no matter how old they got.

 

This probably isn't one of my uncles. Could be, though.
