Bucket Listing #carrotranch #loganandmorgan

‘What are you looking forward to, Morgan?’

‘Pizza.’

‘You’re going to the States and that’s top of your bucket list?’

‘It’s the home of great pizza. That and fruit.’

‘Fruit?’

‘They have the biggest apples…’

‘Seriously?’

‘I’ve seen it on film. Their pizzas are as big as…’

‘Apples?’

‘Bigger.’

‘Isn’t Italy the home of pizza?’

‘Nah. That’s like saying curry comes from India.’

‘But…’

‘No listen. Who are in all those American films? You know, the history ones?’

‘I’m sure you’ll tell me.’

‘Indians. So if Indians come from America then why not pizza?’

‘Morgan?’

‘Yes?’

‘You’re an idiot.’

April 2, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that includes pizza. It can be an original pizza pie (or slice) or something pizza-like. Go where the prompt leads!

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    Nice chuckle for me at the end! I’ve developed likings for pizza myself in these crazy days. It must be the illusion of normality it brings.

  6. How exciting! These two are coming cross the pond for a visit? Did you know that the Saddle Up Saloon lets rooms? (Though one is said to be haunted by the ghost of Fannie Hooe.)

    Ha, ha! Somehow that all makes sense! One could make a pizza tour and try all the styles. If one could go out, that is.
