uh oh.

today i had a bit of a mishap while visiting the TREVI FOUNTAIN. because it was 90 degrees outside and because i have a curious spirit, i quickly dipped my foot into the fountain and was immediately ARRESTED ! it was not a pretty sight. the two policewomen who arrested me were not pleased that i didn’t have my passport and that i was not being entirely compliant. why were there no signs ? how was i supposed to know ? i promise i won’t do it again ! it’s not like i was wading in the fountain ! i could have sworn i saw audrey hepburn do it ! nope, they were not amused and they held me hostage for a long time demanding that my husband go back to fetch my passport. LUCKILY for some reason i had my drivers license with me and that was all they needed to slap me with a fine. live and learn.

P.S. three days LATER, this article was in the new york times !
