A Love Letter: Part II

I had a roommate in college who loved this pickup line. “Wanna come over to my place for pizza and a make-out?” She would wait for a reply in the affirmative then say, “Well, I actually don’t like pizza but come over anyway.

Every time I drive by a mural that marks the entrance to a pizza joint in town, that pick up line comes to mind. At first glace one sees a group of people running towards a common location. Someone holds a sign for PIZZA and other for SUBS.

But look again. Closer this time...


Is that a pregnant woman next to a bride and groom? And what’s with the boy dressed as Robin? A broken leg; an umpire; and what is that nurse holding? I don’t know what type of pizza/sub party this is but I’m not hungry anymore. Suddenly I don’t like pizza. And please don’t come over anyway.

...and lest you forget what town you are in, where is everyone running?

To see the gator leashed by the bulldog of course!

That’s right. Go DAWGS.

I had a sudden craving for pizza until I saw the rest of the post. Very strange picture!

WOAH where are the hedges at?

What this appears to be saying is: No matter your situation-- whether you're in labor, in traction, just married, or a superhero--eating this pizza and these subs is better than anything you might be doing.

Unless you're swinging.

If you're swinging, just keep swinging. Because swinging is fun. And the pizza and subs will still be there when you're done.

What are the guy and girl in the background behind the gator tossing around? It looks like a sub to me. Oh well, at least they are not tossing their cookies.

this made me laugh!
cool characters going for food- a group on the run - trying to beat out the other crowd that will follow after church services...

wow charlotta! I ride my bike past that mural every single day and I have never noticed that! Where are the "go dawgs" bushes?

Craze: The funny part was that the parking lot was empty when I took these pictures. Seems no one was in the mood for pizza.

Katy/Nataly: the bushes around the pizza sign. It's on Baxter street.

Bone: I'm so glad you noticed that too. That made me laugh.

Shankar: I think it's a frisbee. You know, good ol' college fun.

Daily Panic: Ah, you might be onto something; food after church, that's entirely possible.

Mikey Likey: And that's why I love this city...all the cool secrets people don't notice.
