So, I go to pick up my turkey yesterday at the neighborhood macelleria:

Macellaio: That’ll be 60 euro.

Me: Seems like a lot – the guy I ordered from said it would be around 30…

Macellaio: 30 euro, for a 35-pound turkey??

Me: 35 pounds?? I asked for a 10 to 12-pound turkey!

Macellaio: Ooooh, wait a second – you ordered the female turkey… You must be the OTHER American!

Yay for being one of two in town… with a smaller oven, apparently. Happy Thanksgiving!
