RIP

Picture it – Sicily, 1914!

Sophia: In Sicily, we never went to the doctor. We went to the Widow Caravelli. Whatever you had, she had a cure. She was most famous for her green salve to cure ear infections. One day, she gave some to Salvadore, the village idiot. He misunderstood the directions and put in on his linguine instead of in his ear.
Dorothy: Well, I guess if you’re an idiot with a hearing problem, you do things like that.

Sophia: Actually, it turned out ok. The stuff tasted great, so Salvadore decided to market it. At first, things didn’t go so well. Linguine with ear salve wasn’t very appetizing. But once he changed the name to pesto sauce, it sold like hot cakes!

Dorothy: Ma, you’re making this up!

Sophia: So what? I’m old, I’m supposed to be colourful!
