New Job/New language

For those who don't know, long story short, I am starting a new job part time. I am going to be a server at a nice italian restuarant. I have gone through many emotions but am not almost looking forward to it now. I have to go through training and tests so I am not so looking forward to that part. Which brings me to my news, learning a new language. I have to memorize the menu and the ingredients in the menu items.....Ack. Can someone say not good memory due to hypothyroid..yes, but I have so many prayers going up on my behalf and you know what? I am almost done with the appetizers and I just got the book last night!! Yippe! Still have MUCH to go, however, I see that it can be done.

So, my question, why do words look so different than how they actually say them? I have to see the phonetic spelling to get it right but have to know how to say it. Like Bruschette....broo ske ta or Cozze .... Kot ze where did that t sound come from. Okay, I know you don't care but I'm just saying. While I am studying I might as well learn more than just the names. ;) Getting hungry yet? How about some Mozzerella Marinara or Bruschette of the day or Calamari? All right, I'll stop.

Mmmmmmm...I'll have one of everything!!
I did not know how to pronounce Bruschetta. I was saying it the way it is spelled. Thanks for setting me straight.

So when you come to town, do you get a discount at our Carabba's? If so, I'm thinking Girls Night Out ;-)

Yum-O! That makes me have the munchies. So, is it Carraba's? I love that place!

Just relax and have fun! You'll be great!

I am so excited for you, girl! I know you'll do great and will be praying that all will go well as you get started. I envy all the customers that get to have you serve them. How fun? I always thought it would be a fun job to be a server - meeting lots of people and all, but my temperment is not the type for it at all.

I'm curious, too, if it's Carabba's?

Yes, it is Carabba's. We will all have to go for dinner and leave a big tip.
I know that you will do well with those beautiful blues and that winning smile, the people cannot help but love you. I am thinking that you might even enjoy it with your friendly personality. Guess I am a little parcial huh!
Just go out there and shine.
Love you,
Dad
