Musos always play this game on tour, but I’m sure it’s common in many walks of life.
On tour in Italy, for instance, we all come back from lunch in our different groups, outdoing each other with stories of an amazing find:
Little trattoria in a tiny backstreet, not even a sign on the door, only locals in there, no menu, they just give you what they’re having, five courses, home-made pasta… Toothless old lady dressed in black treading the grapes… And you know, it was incredibly cheap… And then she invited us to her granddaughter’s wedding, and there was this fantastic band playing zampogna and piffero…
And so on—you get the idea. See also Nearly an Italian holiday.
