I idly picked up a Cannobio accommodation brochure the other day, and my editor's eyes alighted on this particular description:
“...The flats are all endowed with equipped kitchen, autonomous heating, ample private balcony or terrace, sat-TV, parking, pier and boas...”
Perhaps visitors might be more than a little wary of this residenza, what with the heating with a mind of its own and something squirmy waiting at the pier...
Squirmies at the pier are definitely something to see! But the heating might be complicated to negociate with. ^^
That's funny! Are those perhaps feather boas? Such difference a little 't' makes! Maybe we have autonomous heating too; it didn't turn on last night, even though it dipped to below 40. We were snug and warm under the winter covers nevertheless! Time to haul out the fleece wear!
Looking at the other languages in the leaflet, I think they actually mean buoys...!
You have the makings of a new career there! And while you're at it, correct the English of the very funny public notices on the Italian Riviera side as well.
LOL - that is hilarious!
