  • Even the cheese was living it up: along with a nutty 3-year provolone, ciambella all'aglio, and 2 kinds of salumi, we also got ubriaco al prosecco -- a cow's milk cheese that's bathed as it ages in all the grape stuff that's left over from making Prosecco -- all sitting happily on a slab of chalkboard marked with their names.

  • There's a noticeable dearth of witty/chirpy/colourful euphemisms for drunkenness in Italian (as compared to English), which supports your theory about it not being very acceptable.

  • I said this once in Italy and provoked an incredibly awkward lull in conversation. I think it's less acceptable there than elsewhere to be ... uh ... let's say noticeably tipsy. (Not that I was, mind you. It was merely my saying the word that provoked the awkwardness. Though I have a history of people assuming I'm drunk when I'm just being myself. Hmm...)
