Would you eat that super-fresh squid after seeing how the guy cleaned it?

    I remember a fisherman in the Trapani fish market with whom I had the following exchange:

    Fishmonger: Pesce fresco! Pesce fresco! Signora guardi, non c'e' pesce piu' fresco di questo! Quanto ne vuole? (Or something like this)
    me: Mi piacerebbe molto. E' bellissimo, ma putroppo sono solo di passaggio.

    Without missing a beat, the fishmonger:
    Signora, siamo tutti di passaggio!

    I could have felt silly, but being Sicilian, I felt a silly pride. I loved the quick wit.

    Without missing another beat, the fishmonger was loudly offering his beautiful, fresh catch.
