My Preachin' Post--Amen!

This morning this big black ominous cloud hung over the Hudson River and I thought, "This could be it--the end of me." I started planning my demise--it was THAT ominous. :)

So I made breakfast (leftover pizza, I'm that pathetic), and by the time I was done eating, the big black ominous cloud was gone and the sun was shining.

Made me think of how we often view life. Sometimes it hits us with big black ominous clouds and we don't think we'll ever get out from under them. And we grumble, and complain, and feel oppressed and sorry for ourselves. But somehow, miraculously, when we look out the window again, the cloud has lifted, the sun's shining, and life is good again. Amen to that!

Done preachin'. Strike up the choir!

Or, you could also look at it like: Even though the black storm clouds of life can darken your day, at least there's always left-over pizza in the fridge.....
okay, if you can do better, by all means, be my guest...

Pizza DOES make all things good.

There have been many evil deeds done in the world but perhaps the worst is leaving an empty pizza box counter, which makes fools like me think there is still pizza left. I lift the lid and my face falls flat as dark clouds gather around my head. The day is ruined.

Pizza should be the subject of more poetry.

I understand your pizza sorrow and disappointment, Dave. Tear came to my eyes when I read that story.

For Sushiboy:
Pizza tastes good
Pizza tastes great
It's a perfect food
That's impossible to hate.

Fresh-cooked pizza, Dale? Two slices or three? Oh that's right, you like PIZZA-IN-A-BOX by that Italian company Kraft Foods. Oh, the Canadians ...

When my kids lived at home there was no such thing as leftover pizza. they would inhale many slices and then lick the pizza box. It was better than my cooking LOL

Lick the pizza box? Now THAT I've never seen. They didn't eat the box though, did they?

Ohhhhh

I wish I was a pepperoni pizza
That is what I'd really like to be
'Cause if I was a pepperoni pizza
Everyone would want a slice of me

Thank you.
