Translation: “too much noise.”
Said in a commanding voice while scrunching up and covering your ears, this amusing signature of a friend’s little South Brooklyn Italian father works great to express annoyance at anything disruptive that might come into your world.
I’ve used it liberally with moderate passion since I heard it on Halloween. And it felt good. Worked like a charm.
beepbeep-boopboop-bopbop — visions of cute little Italian man in distress. Ahhh — all better.
That is, until today. With six shopping days ’til Christmas and me – the hesitant cautious dreamy driver – freaking out behind the wheel on jammed roadways and parking lots, it became apparent that the holidays require a stronger version of this expression – one with more aggressive hand motions.
For the love of God, gimme some mercy mild!!!
