Accosted, I was!

Whilst waiting for my public transport of choice this evening I was accosted by a tall dark attractive female stranger who first offered to give me a lift wherever I was heading, in English, I might add, and then she asked me which way I was going.  This, very tall, lady of African extraction, I would guess, was quite insistent, though not aggressive.  Being a sensible, sometimes, sort of guy, I politely declined her kind offer and was somewhat relieved to see my bus coming round the corner.  I deftly hopped on and away.  The whole, very minor, incident left me rather bemused.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

I’ve had some funny things happen to me, but that was one of the oddest for quite some time, I can tell you.

Had you been in my shoes, dear reader, what would you have done?
