Welcome to Friday Fictioneers, a group of writers who attempt to write a 100-word story based on a photo prompt. This week’s photo is brought to us by Dale Rogerson, who I understand has a birthday today. So, Happy Birthday, Dale! Cheers! And thanks for the pizza.:)
My story went a bit over. I apologize. I did my best to cut.
All are welcome to participate. Visit Rochelle’s blog Addicted to Purple for more info.

“He owns a deli.” Chuck surveyed the baseball field of short-legged participants.
“Remember the party with the limos,” Janice persisted.
“Giuseppe is just a neighbor with a big family.”
“That’s what I’m saying.”
The hot dog line was long. They chose the empty pizza booth instead.
“Hi, Giuseppe. I didn’t expect to see you here.”
“My nephew’s on a team. You guys want pizza?” Giuseppe gestured toward a tower of boxes. “Half price. You never had a pizza pie like this.”
Janice didn’t think they had a choice. No matter. Whenever hunger consumed them, Chuck and Janice dreamed of Giuseppe’s cold pizza pie. Simply the best.
