Buon giorno, tutti! Hello, all! Did you know my author's mother was born in Italy? And she, plus the author's grandmother, inspired the creation of yours truly? That's right. The thing is, my author doesn't speak fluent Italian because when she was growing up, her mother and Nonna spoke Italian to each other when they didn't want her or her two brothers to understand what they were talking about. Ellen studied Italian in college and became, well, not bad at it. But it's been a while since then. So now when she needs me or anyone else in our series to speak the language, she has to use an online translator. I thought it would be fun to do that today, so first...
IN ITALIAN: Quel suo marito di bassa età, tradisce la mia bellissima nipotina. Sono contento che l'oceano abbia reclamato la sua vita triste e dispiaciuta perché se non lo avesse fatto, lo avrei fatto!
IN ENGLISH: That lowlife husband of hers, cheating on my beautiful granddaughter. I'm glad the ocean claimed his sad, sorry life because if it hadn't, I would have!
There, I said my piece - in TWO languages!
