'Completely, utterly, Italy...'

Something S said in the course of conversation with 'friends'. These bits of word play occur fairly regularly but I often forget to write them down. Italy is by far her favourite country for holidays, by the way.

It's interesting that although S's conversations often include nonsense words which seem to just act as fillers, she can distinguish nonsense words  -  even in the context of a nonsense song. She has reflexology once a week with a friend who puts on Beatles music and they sing along. The friend introduces various nonsense phrases into the lyrics  -  'We all live in a tub of margarine' e.g,  -  and this always produces gales of laughter.
