Our cell phones

Two important notes about our rented Italian cell phones:

1) Mike Wise already lost his. Someone came with a replacement today. Mike's response? "Thank you very much. I'll see you next week for the same thing."

2) I got a text message in Italian and finally found a translator. The translation?

"Hey, how are you? Is everything ok? How is the nanny?"

Were I fluent in Italian, I would certainly respond that the nanny lost her mind and ran off with the butler. Sadly, I am not.
