I am not an Italian translator, but I am studying Italian and as far as I know, it can be translated as: "Magari!!!!". "Io aspetto" would be for: "I wait for". Let´s wait to read the comments from an Italian translator!!!
Hope this helps, Magari!!!!
OK, that's a GREAT picture of that cat, and I really like your login I.D. Mine stands for Green Fields cats. Green Fields is the farm on which I live and cats is 3: Truffle, Miche (a round loaf of French Bread) and Cappuccino.
Thanks so very much for confirming what I hoped was right. I'm most relieved!
