“You are so melodramatic!”
One of my closest friends in the States used to say this to me all the time. Funny in Italy on a scale of 1 to 10, I’m a 2 at the most.
Perhaps growing up in a Caribbean household is the reason I can be overly expressive at times. I never even thought I was melodramatic until it was brought to my attention.
Then I moved to a country where a company describes its potato chips like this:
twice as much flavour.
The flavour of the countryside, vital and sumptuous.
The pleasure takes you away
in waves of flavour.
A truly traditional sensation that nibbles away without letting go.
Folks, they are talking about chips! Vital and sumptuous? Pleasure taking me away in waves? Ha. This sounds like it should be about my future boyfriend.
