First of all, why does Barilla print instructions for cooking pasta on the pasta box-package, in English and Spanish, but not Italian? Although pasta does have its roots in China (I think, at least), Italy has made noodles their noodles. Taste an Italian noodle dish and you will be able to tell that it is Italian, not Chinese or Vietnamese. I’m sure your noses are able to help your tongues taste the difference. At least mine are.
Secondly, I just wanted to share with you all this great site for you writers and poets out there. One of my followers, Mileventwelve, showed this to me and I signed up. The site is named Figment, where you can write stories and share them, and browse through a digital, bookless library of stories. Short stories, poetry, dystopian, realistic fiction, fantasy, etc.
