1. You’re never late, “you’re parking.”
Milanese never want to admit that we’re going to be late. This is why, when your friend rings you while waiting for you out in the freezing rain, you give an excuse like “I’m parking, I’ll be there in 5 minutes.” Even though you’re still at home playing Candy Crush.
2. You secretly miss Expo.
You’ll never say it out loud (because it was an awful mess), but during those 6 months Milan really felt international. And those 5 euro evening tickets were a great deal. And you still miss the lobster roll at the USA Pavillion!
