Another Half Italian

Yesterday afternoon, I watched the Super Bowl at a Chinese New Year party. The wife of the couple who threw the party is half Italian, like me. Unlike me, she's also Chinese/Malaysian and a British Immigrant.

With the others, I tossed salad and proclaimed "Lo Hei!" in the San Fernando Valley, while the Super Bowl (Super Blow, for those of us who aren't Giants fans) played out.

My Italian immigrant grandmother would have enjoyed yesterday's diversity, most likely offering one of her standard lines (with heavy rolled "r"): "They are all meex up!"
