Rubbed Raw in Verona
I had never heard of teeneagers writing Juliet in Verona- who would have thought!

That they have volunteers who are willing to answer questions from the lovelorn testifies to their sense of civic pride, but I, too, wonder what type of person writes to a fictional character for love advice. They should make up legends about the other parts of the statue and get the rest of it polished...

There was a movie a couple of years ago called Letters to Juliet. Fluff of a movie but in the early scenes it centered around the volunteers of Verona reading and responding to the letters to Juliet. I always admire the cities that promote tourism. Good for them to get some tourist dollars to keep their town viable. Funny about the breast rubbing.

OMGosh! I didn't know about this and what a hoot! Yes--why would anyone write to either Romeo or Juliet for love advice is beyond me--LOL! Rubbing on men only brought me bad luck--ROFL!!

So - did you rub the breast? I don't think you specified that in this fascinating piece. I remember the light romance movie 'Letters to Juliet' but did not know about the statue. I would imagine if one boob is good fortune, two is like hitting the lottery? Great story!

Well, i knew people write to Sherlock Holmes to help them solve mysteries, but i hadn't heard of this.

Thanks for keeping us abreast of Verona. Be careful of that statue though.. it might be a booby trap. ;)

Hahahaha.... and I bet you had to rub her left breast.. just to see. So you will have to let us know if it was lucky or not.

So if you rub a girl named Juliet's left breast you'll get lucky? Why have you waited until now to share this wonderful tidbit of information? That would have been damned handy to know back when I was about 17. ;) S

I don't think I want advice from a girl who got herself in such a mess and then killed herself. And I don't believe I care to rub her left or her right breast or both at the same time. Love, Janie

I once massaged Lincoln's proboscis in Springfield, Illinois. If that counts.

What a bizarre thing -- all those letters going to "Juliet" in Verona. I loved the pics! :-D

Both breasts are rubbed shiny because most rubbers don't know left from right. I've been unable to find a Romeo statue in Verona. I think there's a Romeo with Juliet statue but nothing solo. And the one with Julie is I think made of stone. Which means before you even rub him, he's already hard as a rock.

LMAO, I can just imagine what folks are rubbing on Romeo's statue if boobs are what attracts folks to Juliet. LOLOLOLOL Love it! Kathy http://gigglingtruckerswife.blogspot.com

As always, you write very interesting and educational posts. I'm off to take a cold shower now.

I wonder how many go ahead and rub both because they suddenly realize they rubbed the wrong one :) I don't even want to see the Romeo statue.

The mention of Shakespeare brings back traumatic memories from my school days in English Literature classes. Never really "got it" if I'm honest. But rubbing breasts (real or otherwise) that's a different story altogether! Incidentally, I've struggled to set up a system that notifies me when you write a new post. I've tried again today, and I'll see if it works - if not, I'll drop in off my own steam at regular intervals.
