Laura’s Word(s) of the week: In bocca al lupo

‘In bocca al lupo’ means ‘Good luck’ in Italian.

The literal meaning is ‘In the wolf’s mouth’.

The appropriate response if someone wishes you luck is ‘Crepi il lupo’, meaning something along the lines of ‘The wolf will cark it.’

Dead wolf = success!

    That’s hilarious! I will never remember the Italian version, but I’ll just use the english translation instead. Take that, wolf!
