Maybe I should have put this in the question/answer post this week, but here it is:
Question: What do you do when you have an hour to yourselves in a hotel room on a Saturday morning?
Answer: You watch an episode of Full House! Duh.
You know you’re old when you watch an episode of Full House and you tell your spouse, “Man, look at them—they’re just kids!” and you’re talking about John Stamos, Bob Saget, and that other guy. You feel even older when the particular episode you watch is celebrating John Stamos’ 26th birthday and everyone keeps commenting about how old he is.
Anyway, on Saturday we took the kids on a gondola ride at the Venetian and our gondolier, Beppi, talked the whole time about all the movies he had been in, like The Tourist.* You probably recognize him from his picture:
He really was Italian—in fact the only real Italian gondolier in the whole operation, he told us, but somehow when we stopped to get ice cream on the way back to our hotel I felt like Rocco, who is only 1/8 Italian, just seemed just a little bit more Italian.
Not seeing it? How’s this:
Someone should definitely uninstall Photoshop from my computer. I’m starting to get creepy. But not as creepy at the Italian guy with a baby face picture above…
*We looked it up and didn’t see his name in the credits, but a big star like him probably has a stage name.
