The Pizza Delivery Man- Love Life Week Continues

http://www.junkfoodnews.net/Brooklyn%20Style%20Pizza-712w.jpg
I am considering keeping a wad of singles in my nightstand, so I can tip the pizza delivery man.
When this new pizza place opened, we started ordering pizza about twice a week.
When the pizza comes, my husband does the following:
  • Goes downstairs and gets money
  • Goes outside and pays for pizza
  • Brings the pizza, plates, napkins, and drinks upstairs
  • Carefully sets it all up in our bed
  • Then clears it all away downstairs to the kitchen
Yes, he is my personal pizza delivery man. The Best Pizza Delivery Man in the World.

After the longest, most stressful day of my life, I'm lying in bed next to him, eating the last slices of a Sweet Chili Prawn Pizza, that obviously was the victim of a terrible chili powder spill. My mouth is burning like a mofo (and we are spicy food lovers, wtf? Maybe a handful of m & m's would wash it down?).

Anyway, I love you pizza delivery man... and I totally appreciate your speed and efficiency in bringing the spicy stuff to bed-- if ya know what I mean.

The rest of my day basically included my three year old having surgery to put tubes (grommets) in his ears and his adenoids removed. It was a horrible day at the hospital complete with blood and vomiting. I have to go to sleep before I relive it all in words right now, which I really cannot do.

11:49 PM Friday night- I'm out.

I used to deliver pizza. But I never had to bring the spicy stuff on a delivery, not once. So lame.

Hilare, by the way.

Bluestreak said...

Ok, glad we´re not the only people that eat pizza in bed.

Hope your baby is ok!!

What a tough week for you my fluffy friend!!! I hope that Captain Chaos is feeling better each day. Hang in there : )

Yummy pizza!

I'm glad your stressful day is over. And I bet your son is too.

A Free Man said...

A good pizza makes a lot of things better, doesn't it. Hope all's well for your family.

anater said...

Good thoughts for your family coming your way. I prefer Ben and Jerrys to wipe away the ills of a bad week, but seeing there are no acceptable substitutes to be found in Sydney (yet), I may have to start ordering sweet chili prawn pizza.

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Rassles- You never delivered pizza and got a hot beefy tip? ew.

Bluestreak- You are never alone.

DPH- Thanks whore.

Nina Bellina- Wish you were here.

Marvin- Thanks.

Free Man- Yep, we're doing better today, but I don't think it had anything to do with the pizza.

Anater- Serendipity ice cream is the answer here-- I had it the noodle festival and Fiesta on Oxford Mexican restaurant-- now I have to figure out where to buy it.

Christine said...

Sending good, healing thoughts to your baby and to you. There's nothing more stressful than dealing with your child's pain. Pizza would definitely be on my list too.

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Christine- Thanks he doing much better today!

Marketing Mama said...

I'm so sad to hear about the tubes, blood and vomit... happy pizza could be your silver lining. Last night mine was mexican take out...

SuperMindy said...

I'd like my pizza delivered to the bedroom.. I need to work on that.

Glad he (the 3 year old) is doing much better..

Nathan's nephew has to have the same surgery next month.

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Marketing Mama- Well the pizza didn't really help anything, but we're much better today.

Mindy- I think the adenoids being removed made it much worse-- he's not doing that right?

nursemyra said...

"a wad of singles"? you're not in kansas now dorothy. we have $1.00 coins :-)

serendipity ice cream is made in marrickville - it's the best isn't it? got a favourite flavour?

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Hey Nursemyra- A couple of weeks ago we tried the cinnamon chocolate chip at Fiesta on Oxford. Then at the Noodle Festival I had some chocolate flavor-- I loved both! Do you have any idea where you can get it downtown or eastern suburbs area??? Yum-- hook a sister up.

traceyleigh said...

Hope that your boy is ok now. What an ordeal. Pizza cures nearly everything. Sadly we have crap pizza in my town. I just returned from Melbourne and didn't have pizza once! Silly me...I luuuurrrve pizza.

Hey question..have you ventured away anywhere outside of Sydney for a holiday??

***ooohhhh lookie an easy word verification!! Bonus!

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Traceyleigh- Thanks, he's about 200% better now.

Yes, we have been to the Gold Coast, near Sea World and Dreamworld-- we loved it.

We've also been to the Blue Mountains for a couple of nights.

Are you going on a holiday?

traceyleigh said...

I just got back from Victoria (my home state). Was a nice trip but it is so dry there! Melbourne is a great city to explore and very kid friendly. You'd probably like it :-)

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Traceyleigh- I really want to go to Melbourne, we actually had a trip planned which included it-- but we ended up decided to take a long trip to the U.S. instead. Maybe next year?? Anywhere else you recommend going with kids?

SSG said...

mmm some of the best pizza i've had was in Australia. They had nintendo mario kart you could play while wiating, free slush puppies and a "spin the wheel" game where you could win a free order. Nice.
But, dont think i could handle it in bed. I hate eating in bed. I'm a control freak- anal-inside the box-dont like crumbs sort of person. D'oh!

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

SSG- I hear ya sister, I wish I didn't have to hand sweep the crumbs from my bed every day, but I have given into to children eating cookies in my bed, it was a tough call, but you have to pick your battles with two preschoolers.

Mark said...

Excellent way to say I love you! Thanks for sharing.

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Mark- Actually, thank you-- your blog has given me some great inspiration this week.

traceyleigh said...

Tasmania is a great place to holiday. I would recommend you do it in the warmer months although if you don't mind a bit of fresh wind on your face and can rug up then colder months are ok too. We have some gorgeous places to visit here in Tassie. It all depends on what type of holiday-ers you are and what you like to do as to where I could recommend.

Corrina said...

Uh wow. Your "pizza delivery man" is A-W-E-S-O-M-E. And I'm officially jealous. LOL

Good thoughts for your little one. :-)

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Corrina- Thanks, he doing great now, what a difference a week makes.
