dessert is back
January 14, 2003 07:27 PM

I've seen three different pizza companies advertising three different free desserts with your pizza since coming home tonight. [We keep the television on during most of our waking hours - being of that generation of latchkey kids who did homework in front of the television, we're more productive at other tasks with noise and color in the background.] And it's only 7:30!

Most fast food and takeout places have always offered some form of dessert, but the fact that the pizza places are eagerly inventing new desserts and advertising them loudly (as part of the pizza wars, I suppose) indicates a rekindled enthusiasm for the dessert experience.

I heartily approve. I don't exactly approve of the cinnamon pizza, but I like the idea of dessert - of eating fully for the pleasure of eating and extending the time you spend in your dinner partner(s)'s company. It's a sign of a healthy attitude towards food - neither as the enemy or the savior, simply as something to enjoy.

It's a good thing I renounced my fatness in that last entry. I mean, a fat person admitting to liking dessert? Appalling! A sure sign that I'm a crazed eating machine.

your wicked thoughts

As for the "we's" and "they's" of this world, I don't recall giving ANYONE exclusive rights to voice MY opinion as their own. My opinions (like anyone elses) are MY OWN, and surely they will not be accepted by EVERYONE else. How boring would this world be if we all agreed on everything! P.S. "Cinnamon pizza", novel idea...surprised they haven't started selling those at a premium :)

-My we have brains response prompted a "friend" to offer me cash for sex. What a strange world. I guess it is to test my theory or something. [rolls eyes]

-Dominos Dots are just doughnuts, but my friend Liz is absolutely addicted to them. I think she orders pizza just to get the Dots. Too bad no one delivers to my town.
