    I would love to get a pair of free tickets! One of my closest friends is Italian, and just had to file for bankruptcy due to several rough years of not making any money as a real estate agent and having to go through knee replacement surgery-which meant a lot of down time and therapy. (She had a couple of deals that were hot, but people backed out at the last minute.) As she speaks Italian fluently, I can’t think of a nicer thing to do to uplift her spirits and mine. Isn’t this what being a friend is all about?
