Come butta?

Ciao a tutti!! Buon anno! I am sorry for the poor start to the year, but that nasty flu is going around, and it has set me back a couple of weeks. I thought we would start the year off with some interesting words and expressions that I had a chance to read while laid up in bed.

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the expression Come butta?, which means How’s it going? This expression is very colloquial, and it is used only with people you know well — friends, family members, or even the family cat!

See the expression used below:

“Ciao Marco, come butta?”

Hey Marco, how’s it going?”

“Non male, Antonio! E tu?”

“Not bad, Antonio! How are you?”
