The Spaghetti Thanks You

Yesterday I was talking to Ed's neice and she was asking me if I knew any Italian words.

I said, "A few."

She said, "Do you know how to say 'you're welcome' in Italian?"

I thought a minute, knowing it was "Prego" but all of a sudden, I felt like I didn't know but said anyway, "I think it's 'Prego'."

She laughed and said, "I thought so. I was talking to one of my friends and I couldn't remember what it was but I knew it was the name of some spaghetti sauce. I thought it was 'Ragu."

That made me laugh and I thought to myself, the next time someone says "Grazie", I'm going to say "Ragu!"
