IDA’S BLESSING

Fennel. Always use it when you make sauce.
You no forget this. Capisce? It important,
like you girl. She Irish. She strong. She have
eyes green like leafy tree. She laugh tall as da Chrysler

Building. That’s good. You have taste. You like?
She smart. You work better overtime to keep up.
She to you what fennel is to sauce; to Sunday
and any dinner. You no forget this. Capisce?
