My In-Laws Expertise On All Things: A Twitter Journey

I’ve been getting comments, tweets, and emails asking what the hell happened at the end of my in-laws stay over Christmas and into January. Honestly? I was so busy hosting that I didn’t have time to write any lengthy posts towards the end. However, I did have time for Twitter, now and again. So, here are some of the highlights from Twitter that I didn’t have time to share via blog posts. Enjoy (my pain)! If you get a minute, “like,” the posts or follow me on Twitter. Tell me which is your favorite Tweet in the comments below!

ON FOOD AND FINE DINING….

ON LANGUAGE LEARNING….

(This was accompanied by my MIL telling me that since learning a language is “so easy,” I must have a “learning disability.” Probably.)

ON NON-ITAIAN LANDSCAPES….

  1. These make me laugh so much. In contrast to your in-laws’ experience, mine were flipping out In Indiana, because everything was so green! Even greener than northern Spain.

  2. Love the Twitter summary and that fact your in-laws posed for pics in front of the dancer at Paris. However, I am thoroughly confused by Vegas being a small Italy.

  3. I just moved to Italy a few weeks ago to move in with my fiancè. We met in the States and when we were dating I introduced him to pancakes and syrup. (: Once we went to IHOP for the first time and he said he wanted pancakes but to make sure the waitress gives us “that brown stuff that goes on top.” I told him, “Don’t worry, that’s standard, they WILL bring syrup with your pancakes!”

  4. Hilarious! Labia-be-gone sounds like a real money maker. How about calling it “the vulva veil?”

    By the way, your dad didn’t happen to make ghormeh sabzi? Soooo good with limey-onion-y deliciousness.

  6. So funny! I was also wondering how the rest of their visit went after enjoying the early recaps! I’ll have to follow you on Twitter now too. I really enjoy your posts.

  7. Hilarious post! However, cheese and syrup get along in The Netherlands too! (And also pancakes with cheese and syrup, or with bacon and syrup). Funny it is, but tasty too actually! 🙂

    • Thanks Janine! Glad you liked it ! Haha really?! Interesting! Bacon and syrup we do in the US, but not cheese. Not typically anyhow. They don’t actually eat that in Italy, in fact finding syrup is a really difficult task because it’s an import item that locals don’t typically consume. She was just saying, “We do that in Italy,” because she wanted to be right. Hahaha.

      • Haha, exactly. Well, for me this isn’t something that would bother me. My ears still hurt of pure frustration though when I hear how they pronounce U2 (yes, the band). Now that sounds just so bad!
