Time for the snobby, pedantic Italian to chime in!

The term pepperoni is a corruption of peperoni, the plural of peperone, the Italian word for pepper. To order the American version of pepperoni in Italy, one would request salame piccante
Now this thread is Italian-compliant!
Now, the million dollar question is "Does our hifalutin Italian friend like the stuff?"
I will say, I'm not a fan of spicy food. Salame piccante is nice, but in small quantity. For sandwiches, I prefer salami: especially salame Felino and Finocchiona (sorry, links only in Italian). As a pizza topping, I prefer plain Italian sausage.

And I must confess, I had to find "hifalutin" on the dictionary because I had no idea what it means. Wikionary gives the meaning as "Self-important, pompous; arrogant or egotistical; tending to show off or hold oneself in unduly high regard". Which is actually quite accurate!

Or you might not, It's a slightly pejorative word used by the less educated to refer to those folks who are "Self-important, pompous; arrogant or egotistical; tending to show off or hold oneself in unduly high regard"

I meant, I might use it a lot describing how other people define me.

'Night, all.
I can commiserate with that, I was having a little trouble sleeping when I was home alone a few weeks ago, because I had cleverly spooked myself. I bought fresh lavender the next day to put in my tea - and it put me out like a light, I couldn't believe it! I would go back to that if I had to. I hear the pills can have some side-effects.

Oh and "hifalutin" is such a fun word, I think I'd like to use it more! It's more common across the pond than it is here... reminds me of the film High Society for some reason. *Goes off humming Who wants to be a millionaire*

Oh, and I'm drinking my usual tea. I'm a creature of habit.

Gray Goose martini, up, dry, blue cheese-stuffed olives.

Thought I'd change it up a bit.
