Friday Fictioneers — That’s Amore

img_2417Arnold walked over to their hotel room window, pushed aside the sheer, lace curtain, and called out to his wife, “Honey, come see this view.”

Florence walked over to her husband. “It is beautiful, isn’t it. And the moon, oh my.”

Arnold suddenly started singing, using his best Dean Martin impression, “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore. When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine, that’s amore.”

“Arnie,” Florence smiled and said, “we have the moon and the wine.”

“Then I’d say it’s time for some amore.” Arnold said.

And here’s a bonus for those of you who are old enough to remember Dean Martin. Or for those of you who are too young to know who Dean Martin was.

    🙂 Fandango, I might not be as old as you, but I am very familiar with that song from Dean Martin.

    They certainly do not make music like that anymore, my friend.

    Do have yourself a fabulous day!

    Anyone who posts a Dean Martin video while he’s singing is cool in my book. 🙂

    Like a big pizza pie? Is that the famed Red Moon? Super moon? Or just the Italian Pizza Moon? But surely a good time for amore!

        In real life you will be devoid of any impression.. If we meet that is..

          That’s impossible. Everyone you meet leaves some sort of impression.

      I know he was initially the straight man to Jerry Lewis’ funny man, but Dean was also a pretty funny guy.
