I laughed hysterically as my Dad choked on his last bite of food and began to chuckle himself. I quickly explained to her that Guinea was a derogatory word towards Italians. I went on to make sure she understood what I was saying and that the name of the book was Guinness World Records.
We were still kind of laughing when she looked at me with a serious face and stated, “I shouldn't read that book anymore!” We were all completely hysterical then.Her Pepa bought her the Guinness World Record Book for Christmas that year.
