A couple of weeks ago I recommended “From Scratch” on Netflix as we enjoyed it a lot. So we also recommended it to our neighbors, Susanne and Larry. They really liked it.
But over coffee Sunday, Susanne made a comment that took me off guard.
I should state that I have never been confused about my gender (I came out as gay rather late in life but definitely identified as male).
Susanne happened to mention that the old Sicilian woman/grandma/widow who was Lino’s mother, (Filomena played by Lucia Sardo) reminded her of me!!!
|Lucia Sardo as Filomena|
That is the first time anyone ever told me I reminded them of an old Italian woman. (I'm sure I could have reminded her of Lino 40 years ago. - Leon says I was a real "Guido") But now...I'm a Filomena...
As far as Old Italian women are concerned, here are my real Italian Grandmas
And my real Italian Grandpas
