24 signs that you've been in Italy too long...

(a few examples)

1. You consider accepting the dinner invitation at the house of someone you just met.

2. You can have a conversation with a stranger comprised entirely of facial expressions, hand gestures, and no words.

3. You can't imagine not wearing a black down jacket and black sunglasses most of the year.

8. You can convey all your feelings with a single "maa..." or "boh".

12. You only have coffee for breakfast, then if you feel a bit peckish get a pastry at 10 am with more coffee, in between two other morning coffees.
