Life With A Gondolier

by LisaMay

Can Alberto resist? Mark my words, I’m taking a punt he’s sinking it would’ve venezia if he wasn’t married.
Ah, those tourist girls!
“Italia now, I’d rather play bridge with you,” he sighed, “but it’s high tide I went home to clean the venetian blinds, oar my wife’ll divorce me.”


Author's Note:
(Thanks to Sallyo for suggesting this one)

Translations: "venezia" is Italian for Venice. In this context = "been easier".

"Italia now" = "I tell ya now"

St Mark's and The Bride of Sighs are features in Venice.

This is the 43rd in a series of 50-word hypothetical romantic encounters with men in different jobs.
I hope you get a giggle out of these.
