: how would you fill in the following blanks? A day ___ love is like a day ___ sunshine?

The most famous (and perhaps original) version of this often repeated Italian proverb is "Un giorno senza il vino e' come un giorno senza il sole" ... a day without wine is like a day without the sun. This has been adapted endlessly, both for humor and commerce, to a day without orange juice, a day without golf, etc., etc. Your version, love, is certainly worthy, but I'll take wine. it's something I can enjoy twice in a day....
