Hey Daddy! It’s your day!
Felice giorno del padre. (Fay-lee-chay jawr-noh del pah-dray.)
But if you’re Italian (or Spanish or Portuguese), your day has come and gone. Festa del Papa was March 19.
Well, never mind. Here are some Proud Sicilian Padres.
I’m celebrating with my daddy today. Yay, padre mio! Thanks for dragging me across the Big Pond at 14 and igniting my Euro-Lust. I knew then I’d return for good. (Never mind how many decades it took.)
