Italian Americans All Around Us.

Funny story, I was in my local Rite Aid and I was waiting at the counter when I overheard this woman speaking an Italian dialect to her daughter. I turned around in utter surprise because I rarely or I should say NEVER hear anyone speaking Italian especially in Americana suburbia. So, I turned around because I couldn't help myself and just said, "you're Italian?" She replied,"Yes, Sicilian." Of course, give me a Sicilian who says their Italian, they always have to be different and say they're Sicilian, like its another world or not part of Italy or something. Love them, but had to point that out. Well, I went on to have a wonderful conversation with this woman and let me tell you, sometimes its just so lovely to meet fellow Italian Americans who speak Italian, what a connection. This was just an eye opening moment and made realize that Italian Americans are all around us.
