They are the charmingest of men, with a hint of mischief.
Not that I have a wandering eye or anything.
Sicilian men favor cigarettes, cool sunglasses, and brilliantine. Many accessorize with gold and maybe a crucifix, or a corno–horn amulet–to ward off the evil eye.

“Linda,” my Sicilian friend–a divorcée–replied, “Are you insane??”
Dear Reader, I’ll let you be the judge.
