Check out our list of 10 things non-Italians will never understand.
1. Wearing a Corno Necklace
They will never understand this one!
2. The Salami Hanging in Your Cantina
The number of times your friends told you that they were too scared to go into your cantina. They have no idea what they were missing!
3. Padre Pio’s Photo in Your House
They just aren’t as religious as you and your family are.
4. The Smell of Your Mothers Sauce
Their mothers bought Prego instead…
5. The Volume of Your Voice
They tell you all the time to lower your voice, but it’s difficult!
6. Why You Always go to Your Nonnas House
They didn’t have the type of bond with their grandparents like you did with Nonna and Nonno.
7. The Italian Words You Say Only When You’re Mad
When you start speaking Italian when you’re mad they just look at you weird!
8. Why You Are Usually Always Late
We are late because we gotta look our best and plus our mothers are asking us a million questions before we get out the door.
9. The Constant Hand Gestures
We are very expressive when speaking. Meanwhile, Kyle keeps his hands by his sides the whole time while talking.
10. Your Multiple Freezers
We are always prepared just in case. Our non-Italian friends usually only ahve ice cream and frozen peas in their freezers!
