Family at the grocery story today.
“Hey Asier, do you think we should get penne pasta for tonight?”
“Ay papi, it sounds wrong when you say it.”
I had said “penne” (from Italian) like the word “pene” (from Spanish), which means penis. Asier picked up on it and let me know.
“Papi, in Italian, you say the double n like this payn-nay.”
“Oh, yeah?” I repeated it. “Payn-nay. Payn-nay. Thank you Asier. You know so much, my little Italian boy!”
