Another career?

No I haven't recorded my first single, nor have I become a radio announcer, but I have done something I've never done before.
Something I would NEVER have done in Australia,
but in Italy...

I was an extra!
With twenty five other foreigners, I was filmed for a new television commercial.
Doesn't sound too bad does it, but...

I had to sing,
the Italian national anthem,
in Italian,
of course.

I really can't sing,
and I really didn't know the words of their national anthem,
and I really can't speak Italian but...
I got the gig.

And for singing one word in an Italian television commercial, I really got paid.  

Perhaps a new career? Probably not.  
After glimpsing my performance Stefano suggested that I'd best stick to my plans for a degree in making gelato.

Molto fortunata!

  4. Very funny, Jenny! Congratulations--you did great! It must have really been fun. Was it an ad for Carrefour??? Italy and its opportunities are always a wonderful surprise--
