We highly recommend dallying over this short lexical review of some very expressive Italian words. Our particular favourites—all to a letter new to us—were schifoso, a really visceral way to state one’s disgust, and the seemingly overly complicated asciugamano, a portmanteau of the dry plus hand that translates to towel, but nonetheless fun to say. What would you nominate? The post’s title is another useful one that means to muddle through, to get by.
