Meet Peppino, My New Best Buddy

We bought a second car! It’s a 2005 Fiat Panda. I call him Peppino. Ain’t he cute? He’s very small, perfect for driving around in on the streets of Tel Aviv and zipping into parking spaces the Toyota can only dream of. I just got him today and am still getting used to driving him. Such a different feel from the Camry.

Peppino and I will head into Tel Aviv tomorrow. The Italian Ambassador’s wife has invited the members of my Italian class to a coffee at the Italian Ambassador’s Residence. I’m excited but nervous. It’s in a part of town I’m not very familiar with. Wish me “buona fortuna!”

Fiat Panda Car of the Year 2004

I don't mean to brag, but Peppino comes with excellent credentials!

        Meglio dice “Crepi!” Desideri il lupo morire!

        Non è buona fortuna quando rispondi “Grazie”.

        Ho pensato che “in bocca al lupo” = “buona fortuna”. Ho imparato qualcosa oggi.

    Si, “In bocca al lupo” vuol dire “Buona fortuna.” Pero`, quando una persona te lo dice, dovresti rispondere con la frase, “Crepi il lupo.” invece di “Grazie.”
