Pizza Pie – Friday Fictioneers

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.

Pizza Pie

“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.

  1. When someone has a big family like Giuseppe, I’m sure you do feel compelled to buy pizza from him πŸ˜‰ And when they say “it’s to die for”, you want it to mean that the pizza tastes good and not something else….

  2. The line of limos has me thinking it’s best not to cross Giuseppe. And cold pizza is better than no pizza. Fun and unsettling at the same time. Well done.

    1. Thanks, Sarah Ann. If I had more space I would have added how his neighbor could maybe, uh, just give them the pizza! No, not Giuseppe. Half-price and cold. But I’ve a lot of cold pizza that tasted pretty good to me. πŸ™‚

    1. Pizza for breakfast, pizza for lunch….I had a lot of pizza in college. I thought I might never eat it again, but I do! Thanks, Dawn. I hope you had a chance to have a slice.
