Three smiles

Me to Rocco: Rocco, what’s your name?
Rocco: Me!!!


Vincenzo: Mom, once I was playing a game called Pirates Caribeening…have you ever heard of that?
Me: Pirates Caribeening?  Yes, I think so…
V: No, not Pirates Caribeening.  Pirates of Caribeener.
Me: Oh…
Kevin: Starring Johnny Deep?
Me: I think it’s Jenny Depp.
V: Yeah.


Vincenzo was about Rocco’s age when he started calling himself “D.”  We never understood exactly why until this week, when Rocco finally came up with a name for his older brother.  After all these years, we finally know that the “D” in Vincenzo stands for “Dendo.”
