Margaret didn't consider herself beautiful,
on the contrary, others thought she was;
she could have been a performer, a model...
an actress, but none of these was her call.
Margaret had a flair for languages, and she
spoke them fluently like a native, not as a foreign;
whenever she went they adored her as their own...
her excellent linguistic skills took her as far as Italy.
Margaret was the all American girl: smart, generous, polite and friendly,
but from her accent people could tell she was from the U.S.A,
and while chatting with natives and sipping on a large cappuccino,
she was approached by a RAI TV manager at the famous coffee shop " Tazza D'oro."
" Scusami, Signorina Walter...are you interested in doing a documentory
on World Famine?" The gentleman with a thick Italian accent asked her kindly,
" Because of your excellent languistic ability, you have been chosen among
potential contestants to be our host in this important film called, " A Sweet Song. "
" Of course, you will be paid for your partecipation in this historical documentary! "
He added with much enthisiasm in his young voice. " Being paid for it...really? "
" No, I'll render my services for free, Signor Agnetti if it is for an humanitarian cause! "
Margared said with a joyful expression on her smooth and freckled face.
* Scusami, Signorina...
Italian transalation: Excuse me, young lady
