A Pocket Full Of Miracles

October 8, 2020

We live in Italy and “ogni tanto” (every now and then) we visit the local bars. Bars here are not the rough places of our native USA; rather, they are gathering places where one can enjoy the company of the local population and share some conversation over a coffee, wine or beer. A sidenote here: the legal drinking age here in Italy is 16; the driving age is 18. Go figure!

Back to the bars. After a week or two of visiting bars, my wallet is always overflowing with bar receipts. You see, here in Italy one must keep his bar receipts on his person until he is 300 meters from the establishment. This is the law! It proprtedly keeps the bar owners honest in reporting all of their income.

With bar receipts burgeoning from my otherwise empty wallet, I religiously empty this “pocket full of miracles” every two weeks. I call it wallet maintenance. This is life in Italy, la vita bella.
