I know you’ve always dreamed of being an olive oil taster.

Go to the link for the Organizzazione Nazionale Assaggiatori Olio di Oliva’s Olive Oil Tasting Course in English and sign up, send in your money, and book your flight and hotel. Make your dream come true.

Tell me all about it when you complete your course, and make sure to tell me what you used to do for a living (ballerina? fireman? secret agent?).
May the sun shine through your branches.
