My dear, sweet brother, Dave, visited us this weekend, all the way from Italy! We love him, especially our boys. We are convinced that David will soon forget he is an American citizen. Little by little he is evolving into a true Italiano. First it was the language...he has trouble recalling words in english. Then the white linen suit and pink shirt...what MAN can get away with that? Italian, studly, confident men. He actually is all those things...except a real Italian. Then the shoes...oh, those shoes! We can't handle the shoes! I guess we Americans are completely out of the style loop. We could not stop laughing about his shoes (thank goodness, he's confident).
William saw David's shoes on the floor and asked, "Hey, Aunt Jen, are those your shoes?"
I even tried to sneak his shoes into my outfit when we went out to dinner. David was following in the car behind me, and every time we turned right, I would stick my beautiful foot out the window, showing him my new shoes! He loved that!
David left today. We will certainly miss him...and his shoes. Love you, Dave!
