But as an American there is a little-known threat to blissful trysts with the world's original Latin lovers: prepositions. Don't let them ruin your mojo.
Here's one that is important to clear up:
If an Italian says they are waiting for you UNDER the shower, don't go out and buy a shovel, start taking up floor tiles, or get off the elevator at the floor below - they are waiting for you IN the shower.
(By the same token, an American who says she is going to TAKE a shower is not about to rob a hardware store, and an Italian who says he is going to DO a shower is not gettin' weird, just gettin' clean).
Now you can get it under. Er, on.
