Dear Lord, I'm Turning Into ...

... one of those ex-pat English types living in Italy so beloved of Edwardian novelists. Yes, I bought a Borsalino! Next thing you know I'll be sitting on the piazza in the hot sun in my rumpled, slightly soiled, linen suit, ogling the tanned fishermen, my ivory tipped cane clutched in one gnarled fist and my afternoon aperitivo in the other.

That's an excellent formal portrait. But we do like you smiley.

Très chic - and I like the way you look faintly amused, which suggests you will not end up as described in your final sentence. Tadzio wasn't worth it, anyway ...
