At Tessa’s parents, Michael said, “This pizza is better than what I remember from high school.”
“Who remembers that far back?”
“I do. I came in one day and saw three pizza boxes on the counter. My mouth started watering, but I couldn’t smell them so I peeked in a box and it held quilt blocks. The other two boxes had the same. My hopes were dashed.”
They laughed at the visual.
Tessa added, “We now have square plastic boxes with handles to carry blocks in, but back then an unused pizza box was gold and hard to get.”
