Posso prenderlo o lasciarlo

I can take it or leave itWonderful phrase this morning which sums up so much of life.Posso is a hard word for me. It means “I can” but for some reason the fact that it sounds like “possible” meant that often I would use it that way when in Italy. I know the Italians humored me on this point although I am sure being asked “e posso” when I intended “is it possible” but was really saying something like “is I can” made for humorous moments when I’d leave the store or restaurant.
