Then again perhaps they have looted their time in St. Mark's Square and were just being silly. I've been known to do such a thing.
Always possible, of course. But when people are doing a goof just for each other and when they don't suspect they're being overheard, there's almost always a twinkle, a knowing grin, a giggle. These two were very earnest, and unless they were accomplished actors putting on a show for me, I think they were for real.
