    “Atz-o”?

    Hmm. I just mop the floor from one end to the other, not having to step on the wet floor. Simpler that way.

    Yup. Heard that in my old neighborhood from our version of Mrs. Angelini: widowed, kids had grown up and moved out of state, so she was one of my ‘extra’ grandmothers (I was the only kid on the block for a few years until other families moved in and took over their parents’ houses once they (the parents) had passed away). I miss her so much: her house smelled like Murphy’s Oil Soap and mothballs, with a permanent underlying tinge of lavender and garlic. Used to hear that word (and a few more serious ones) when Rupert, her ancient Dachshund, used to track dirt all over the kitchen floor from the outdoors.

    Vivid image there. Made me go a bit misty-eyed. Thank you.

    Does Mrs. Angelini have kids or grandkids of her own and have they ever been in the strip?

    Must be “Old Italian”.


    Not for “A-Hole,” I hope!

    Can we assume that some of those “more serious” words rhymed with “truck” and “witch”?

    Only a mother … or someone who actually did the mopping themselves period.

    I dunno – I’m not a mother, so this probably explains the difficulties I have washing my own floors. ;)
