Pizza

But what is it?

Not just bread and cheese and sauce, no.  This meal fit for God himself is so much more.

It is the sound of the loveliest doorbell.  It is the acceptable apology for the mealtime “oops!”  It is the welcoming party when the vacation ends.

It is the taste of summertime birthdays.  It is the texture of picking which movie to watch first.  It is the height of soda can towers.

It is the singing clock’s twelve chimes reminding all that Friday is gone.   It is the placing of a small hand into a big one.  It is the compromise between parents and children.

It is soda’s groom.

It is breakfast.  It is lunch.  It is dinner.  It is the substance of every moment in between.

It is nourishment.  And as nourishment, it is life itself.

Is it worthy of worship, this pizza?

Yes.  An unapologetic, unabashed, unable to understand yes.

    Exactly! Now imagine taking 4 quick pictures on you iPhone of the pizza as soon as you open it and a picture of the receipt. Now upload those the next morning. Receive reimbursement for 1 large pizza plus 5-15 bucks depending on bonus at the end of month. I do this about twice a month. Get a 60-70 dollar check a month. I give it to the girls. Now, go reread your glorious praise blog post to pizza and add this possibility. Heaven is opening
