Italian men are as tough looking as they come until they hold a coffee mug or demitasse cup. Why are they so proper? They always drink with their pinky in the air. I've seen it a dozen times and it bothers me for some reason. Has anyone else ever noticed this or been bothered by it?

I like that--classy yet street smart! Good combination.

An overly confident son, got one of those at home myself. Last year at school, the kids appointed him as their bodyguard to keep the bullies away. This was in kindergarten, can you imagine? Too funny.

Leonard, You know I was talking to my 95 year old aunt and she says this Italian way of doing things is called "Bella figura". Appearances, pride, respect, loyalty to famiglia and not revealing our true emotions to outsiders is all part of our code. It is why so many other cultures try to imitate the Italians.
