Ask Samuele: December 2020

This month, John from Richmond asks…

Dear Samuele,

This isn’t actually a question about a plumbing problem. I just need some general advice.
This year, my wife’s mother will be joining us for Christmas. She’s a lovely lady, and any man
would be lucky to have her as a mother-in-law.

The trouble is, she loves Brussels sprouts, but they don’t love her. They play havoc with her
digestive system, and to say that the resulting smell is akin to rotten eggs, is a complete
understatement. I really don’t think I can put up with it for another year.

Please don’t tell me to open the window… she just complains that it’s too cold.
Also, she lost her sense of smell when she was a young child. Please help! I’m at my wits’

Yours hopefully,

Samuele says:

Ciao, John!

And grazie mille for your question.

Sorry, can’t help you. I have the same problem with my mother-in-law.

Buon Natale.
