Pizza to go for… Lady and Sir
Recently a friend mentioned that one of their favourite things about ordering pizza at their local pizza joint was ordering under a false name, something really exotic or crazy, and waiting for it to be called out when their order was up, and having a chuckle to themselves. I like the idea of this, but I like what happened to us tonight even more.
Tonight, after one of those days at work that just feels like it will never end, we decided it was going to be pizza from the place around the corner for us. They have an electronic order board that counts down the minutes until your order is ready (I know, pretty high tech). You can imagine our surprise when our order popped up on the board as “Lady and Sir”. Of course it made me giggle and then I couldn’t believe it when the boy behind the counter called out, in a very embarrassed and furtive kind of way, “Order for…. Lady and Sir?”, as he looked questioningly at us. My giggling fit continued, PJD looked at me (and the pizza boy) like we were crazy, and I came home and took this photo below – proof that our new pizza nobility status continues, well, until we polish off the pizza anyway (isn’t cold pizza for breakfast the best?!)!
It’s nice to end the day laughing; sometimes it really is the little moments of levity that count.
