I Don’t Wanna Say

When asked what his brothers were up to while Hu-Dad was gone, Frankie Suave replied, “I don’t wanna say.”

I don't wanna say.

Hu-Grandmom came through her hip replacement surgery with flying colors, but Hu-Dad spent time at the hospital with her and left Frankie Suave in charge of his younger brothers. When Hu-Dad came home, he asked Frankie how things went, but Mr. Suave, the benevolent alpha (aka, leave him out of things and he doesn’t care what mischief happens), was flummoxed with the question. Best we can tell, Frankie simply took the Fifth Amendment and said, “I don’t wanna say.”

    Like we use to say in New York: “I don’t know nothing, I’m Italian!”
