Venice, Italy. October, 2012

Once, in a movie theater on my first trip to Rome, I didn’t know enough Italian to distinguish between the words on the doors to the restrooms. Signore? Signori? So similar, which one? I opted for the former. Wrong! But too late did I discover my error and I had to hide in a stall as Roman ladies came and went. Finally it was all clear and I managed to escape the ladies room if not the embarrassment. Now, with more Italian language skills to draw upon, I don’t think I’d make the wrong choice in this Venetian grocery store: baby food on the left, pet food on the right. Buon appetito!
