When "Roman roman Roman" makes sense

The opposite of italic is roman.


I wanted to type that for years.



(above) Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck on Vespa motor scooter
in Roman Holiday (1953).



(above) I had a much more modern Vespa "150" from 1964 until 2011, but never sat behind Audrey Hepburn or in front of Gregory Peck.



(above and below) I have a Fiat 124 Spider. Audrey has never been in it.
It was made in Torino in 1978, not in Rome.


(MCMLXXVIII)

This website converts many "American" years into Roman numerals.

WOW! It took just one minute for today's blog post to be listed in Google. I have the power. Hmm. Maybe it's not good for Google to be watching me so closely.
