A life-changing moment

One such moment was when I realized that the Italian word "ciao," which is both hello/goodbye, is pronounced (somewhat) like "chow."

I had read it all the time and the word flummoxed me. I had also heard people saying "chow" as a greeting but it took forever for me to put the spelling and pronunciation together. I'm not always the sharpest crayon in the language pack, apparently.
