I was talking to two regulars today at the bar. We were talking about heritage, and I told them I was Italian. One of the guys was Italian, too, so we started to banter over macaroni, meatballs and red gravy. It was too cute.

I love being Italian, but not just that, I love being New York Italian. It's like we have our own language, a strange mix of Italian, English, Yiddish and old wives tales. We chatted how we didn't know what pasta was--it was all macaroni, and meatballs are cooked in the gravy, which is red not brown. I like that, how you can find commality in the strangest of places.

Later, a little girl was ordering and couldn't pronounce the menu item. So I repeated it back to her, "Galamari and an order of Orikette--little ears?" She pronounced it back the way I said it, it was really cute. Adults usually ignore my pronunciation and say it how it's spelled: "Fried Calamari and Orecchiette." Hee.
