il termometro - thermometer
It doesn't take a genius to work out that one eh?
My shiny digital termometro has been my friend this week, as the Italian paranoia about la febbre has well and truly rubbed off on me. I've been home ill with been pretty much everything the winter lurgy can throw at you, from a head that feels cut in two by an ax to a very pleasant stomach bug. I've slept more this week than I normally do in about six months. I'm glad to say that I'm back on my feet today, even though I still have a slight fever I'm at least able to function!
