  2. Sounds good. I wrote a hilarious memoir ‘The Italian Thing.’
    This is a small excerpt.

    Mike and I decided to take showers before everyone came home for the afternoon meal. It was a big day and we were trying to be as considerate as we could. I told Mike he could take his shower first. I reminded Mike about the water shortage and told him not to take too long because I didn’t want to use up all the water in his cousins tank before the next delivery. We had been taking showers every day when we first arrived, but had cut down to every other day. When Mike was finished I gathered my clothes and went into the bathroom. I turned on the faucet in the tub, nothing. I turned on the other faucet, nothing. I went to the sink no water. My heart jumped into my throat. Stress grabbed me and held me in a Full Nelson; Fear reared its ugly head at me. I threw on my clothes ran out of the bath room yelling, “Mike! You used up all the water, there is no water! Oh my God what the hell are we going to do now?” “What are you talking about Pat?” was his reply. I said. “I am telling you there is no water, the well is dry.” “Get out of here!” he said. I said. “No it’s the truth, try turning on the water.” He did. He tried every faucet in the house, nothing. My biggest fear had come true. We single-handedly used all of his cousins water in less than two weeks. We looked at each other, we didn’t know weather to shit or go blind. I told Mike he had to call his cousin and tell him, since he was the one who used up the last bit of water. I also suggested that we quickly pack our bags, call an airport car and leave immediately. We actually started laughing; I think it was because we did not know what else to do.

    Hope you enjoyed this. :o)
