Here’s a sneak preview of the new look:

Y’all come back now, ya hear?

  32. witnessing am i

    When you say things like “Y’all come back now ya hear?” in Calabria, do people just look at you like you are a strange bird? Do you ever find yourself saying little things like that for your own amusement, more than anything else?

    Anyway, looking forward to Monday and the new wardrobe. Good luck
