Far be it from me to be the one to
understand educate you on Italian politics, but let’s just say that this is a frequent occurrence (over 60 changes in power since World War II), so no one should be scared.
We still have a president after all.
Feel better? No?
How about a Kinder treat?
P threw one of these in my bag yesterday as I set off for school, knowing that I get peckish mid-afternoon. I’ve always avoided these Kinder snacks (although the little chocolate eggs are heavenly), but just as P guessed, I hit it around 4 p.m.
It was love at first bite with its orange and chocolate flavors mixed together in cakey deliciousness. And then I tasted a little tinge of…something…alcoholic?
Was it possible that these children’s treats are laced with Jesus Juice?
And there it is in plain Italian. Third line down.
Again, like the resignation of Prodi, I don’t really know what that percentage means, but I do know that I felt really nice after the Kinder fiesta bar, that I no longer cared about the government’s status, that yesterday’s lesson went swimmingly, and that I’ve already requested a box full for next week.
Now let’s hope we’ll soon be able to raise our Kinders and salute the new (or old, as it may be) governo.
