Tonight Ryan and I went out for dinner. Sometimes Ryan is nice enough to humor me by letting me ask him about what he’s learning in his Italian class, and sometimes I teach him some new things. Today, at the beginning of dinner, I taught him how to say ‘my’ (my glass, my pizza, etc.)
Later I was saying how intimidatingly beautiful and well put-together the Italian women are Ryan responded by taking my hand and saying:
“La mia bella donna” (My beautiful woman)
Which is pretty much the most amazing thing he could have said there.
For the record, I responded with a phrase I knew Ryan would understand (he used it when he proposed to me):
“Ti amo” (I love you)
