Love, Pizza Style: Friday Fictioneers

Love exists in many forms, in many places, and in many ways…

Each week Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic to write a 100 word story about.

This week it gets a little cheesy and a little saucy…

Love, Pizza Style

Maria, you’re gonna love this.
Don’t tell me you bought this place?
I did.
Ray you gotta be crazy.
We’ll clean up all the mold.
Clean up – you mean tear it down and start over.
Honey, people will flock here just to eat in this pristine setting.
I think you mean the sheep will flock here.
Very funny, Maria.
Listen, Ray. You make pizza.
Yeah, and we’re gonna call it “Ray’s Wood Fired Pizzeria in the Woods”
You might as well call it “Ray Burnt Up His Money in the Woods Fire Pit Pizzeria.”
I’m sending you back on a slow boat to Italy, Maria.
Fine, I’m going, right after I put you in the loony bin.

Wait – This is St. Paddy’s week.
Make this Love, Bangors Style
and a Corned Beef and Cabbage in the Woods Pub

  1. Dear Randy,

    Some would call it ambiance in a quaint setting. How about Money Pit in the Woods? Easier to roll off the tongue. Bon apetit.

    Shalom and B’gorra,

    Rochelle O’Wisoff

    • Rochelle? I thought you were Rosie O’Wisoff….
      and I don’t think Maria would call it “ambience in a quaint setting.”
      I think she would say something like calling an “ambulance in a quaint setting” after she gets done with Ray.

  2. Hehe. Money Pit in the Woods for a really classy Pizza restaurant? People would flock to it, sheep or no sheep. Wonderful and funny conversation between this couple.

  3. Wood-fired pizza in the woods? I would be a regular. Sorry, Maria. I’m with Ray on this one. (Mutton & Mozzerella?)

  4. I actually liked the name and thought that having a Pizzeria in the woods was a good idea, that is as long as plenty of people could get to it. Good story! Hope he doesn’t go to the looney bin.

  5. I can hear my friend’s delightful New York accent in this. (Aurelio Orlandini – right off the boat from Italy at age nine.) I love the banter in this. Or is it a full blown argument? Kudos.

  6. Randy,
    Well, I’m reading it on St. Joseph’s Day, so the Italian flavor of the story seems timely. Nicely written. I can see myself (and a few couples I know) clearly in it.

    All my best,
    Marie Gail

  7. Hilarious! I love your two characters. Great double act. I love this: “Honey, people will flock here just to eat in this pristine setting.” “I think you mean the sheep will flock here.” And: “Yeah, and we’re gonna call it “Ray’s Wood Fired Pizzeria in the Woods”.”
    “You might as well call it “Ray Burnt Up His Money in the Woods Fire Pit Pizzeria.””
    Excellent comedic dialogue-writing. 🙂

  8. Dear Randy, I love what you did to the place – it’s so rustic! I’m sure the pizza will be delicious and the Health Department won’t care – because it is so pizza perfect! Nan

  9. If Ray thinks he can have a successful pizza place out there, I think Maria is right, he belongs in the loony bin. That place looks like it rains a LOT. Your pizza would be covered with moss before you finished eating it. Funny and well done, Randy. 😀 — Suzanne

Have some fun...
