Letter’s to my Italian doctor..

I wake up this morning and I send this email, (full translation follows for my non Italian readers.)

Buongiorno Dott. G.,(and that is not his real name of course, but for privacy purpose’s that’s what we will call him)

In considerazione delle sua ultima email in quanto riguarda l’intervento Lasik, direi ce la posso fare, se Lei ovviamente non si dimentica a procurarmi tutto il Valium necessario per esserci- ma non esserci.

Fissiamo questo appuntamento ora o mai più. Com’è la sua disponibilità? Io farei un venerdi. Anche venerdi prossima se Lei ha ancora spazio.

Vorrei parlare prima, può essere che avrei bisogno di parlare con Lei anche un decine di volte – prima dell intervento.

Forse conviene a darmi il Valium gia da oggi..

Appena che ha due minuti mi può chiamare, cosi fissiamo tutto.

Cordiali Saluti,



Good morning Doctor Gaspari,

Taking into consideration your last email regarding the LASIK procedure, I believe I am ready to go through with it, that is of course if you, (and here I use the formal/polite you which is Lei.) I continue..

..if you do not forget to find me all the Valium necessary to be there, but not really be there.

I believe we just need to make the appointment. Now or never again. What’s your agenda like? I was thinking about doing it on Friday. This Friday if your free.

Of course, I would really like to speak to you. (again)

I might even need to speak to you 10 times before the surgery date. Maybe it’s better if you just give me the Valium today. (I am still using the formal/polite you..)

Best Regards,
