Pizza

THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER

His mother ruined his lazy summer by insisting he help his cousin Roberto open a pizza shop??! Yet another pizza shop in Florence – the home of pizza? But Roberto had an idea….

BOB’S
AMERICAN PIZZA
FINEST INGREDIENTS
FAST DELIVERY

Delivery?? We stay at home; hot food comes to us?? Great idea!!

An idea whose time had come. They did a landslide business from day one!

He had spent a glorious summer, riding up and down the winding streets of this magnificent city – and received enough tips to be able to buy his own motorcycle.

Molto grazie, cousin “Bob” – and Maman.

    Nice story. I’m glad it turned out well for him. What a rare boy to be able to save his tips for something worthwhile.

      Is it rare? I guess so, nowadays. I wrote from personal history. I learned to save, because we did not have enough money to waste. My brother, though…. spent his money on trinkets – and others’ too, if he could get away with it. 👿

    There is always pizza if you knead dough (sorry someone had to say it). Tasty story.

    Home delivered pizza is so hard to resist. So what if you are living in Florence?
