What would most kids do with twenty dollars to spend as they wish?
My boys got on their bikes and rode downtown to spend their twenty bucks on whatever they chose. They both got on the honor role, and a reward seemed fitting.
Did they buy candy? Some kind of video game? T-shirts?
No, those cute Italian boys, as they have come to known as in my small town, made their way to the gourmet wine and cheese shop and came home with gorgonzola and prosciutto crudo.
I must say that the Italian man, as my husband has come to be known as in the local hardware store, commended them on their wise choice.
