No wonder Fiasco hasn't spoken a word to me since he arrived. I just realized that he's Italian! Not from Spain as I thought. I guess he doesn't speak Spanish either? I really don't know how this is going to work?! I don't speak Italian!
He was very interested in those wine glasses. Perhaps this is why?
Fiasco: Noun. Italian for FLASK or BOTTLE. Venetian glass workers operated stiff quality control; any ornamental vessel which wasn't absolutely perfect would be scrapped or sold as a mere wine-bottle. The word spread to include any sort of miserable failure.
I hope this is not a sign of things to come...
