13 ways to know if you are Italian

1. You can bench press 325 pounds, shave twice a day and still cry when your mother yells at you.

2. You carry your lunch in a produce bag because you can't fit two cappicola sandwiches, 4 oranges, 2 bananas and pizzelles into a regular lunch bag.

3. Your mechanic, plumber, electrician, accountant, travel agent and lawyer are all your cousins.

4. You have at least 5 cousins living in the same town or street. All five of those cousins are named after your grandfather or grandmother.

5. You are on a first name basis with at least 8 banquet hall owners.

6. You only get one good shave from a disposable razor.

7. If someone in your family grows beyond 5'9", it is presumed his Mother had an affair.

8. There are more than 28 people in your bridal party.

9. Your grandfather had a fig tree.

10. You eat Sunday dinner at 2:00.

11. Your mom's meatballs are the best.

12. You've been hit with a wooden spoon or had a shoe thrown at you.

13. You fight over whether it's called "sauce" or "gravy."

Mr. Gattino is Italian and there is a lot of truth in these quotes ! After 39 years of marriage I should know !
