My Favourite Italian Words - So Far!

1. il piccione - pigeon
A far funnier word for those annoying creatures!!

2. il riccio - hedgehog
The funny thing is that this word also means curl or curly - hedgehogs definitely aren't curly!

3. il bimbo - (little) boy
Slightly immature, but I don't care...

4. strambo - strange/wacky/freakish
A new word I only learned a couple of weeks ago, and according to my Italian friends, it can be used for those 3 English meanings.

5. il trucco
Used most commonly for 'make-up', but it also means 'trick' - clever those Italians, eh?
