    LOL...Ciao!

    I used to live in NYC and a ton of people use the word ciao. I picked it up from my exgirlfriend. It might be some quasi-cosmopolitan thing. Gay guys tend to live in bigger cities and so thus are maybe more likely to use the term. But in my experience, allot of straights in big cities use it too.

    Tschuss!

    I never use the word 'ciao.' I don't use 'queer' either, for that matter.

    Oh come on, it's a perfectly useful word.

    For instance, when you and yore pod'ner sidle up to the chuck wagon, you don't say "what gustatory delights are you serving up, Cookie?"
    No, you say, "what's for ciao?"

    You don't say, "This? Oh, it's an ugly little dog." No, you say proudly, "It's a ciao."

    You don't go to the Chinese restaurant and ask them for a plate of broad flat noodles, you say "I'd like ciao fun".....

    Well, I could go on and on, but I must go have some clam ciaoder.
