How we ended up with 24 boxes of pizza for supper tonight.
The plan for supper this evening was pizza. Charlie called in the order and I was to pick it up at 5:00 on my way home from youth group. I arrived at 5:05 at the pizza place, paid at the till then went to the pizzeria section to pick up our boxes of pizza. The two guys boxing the pizzas were laughing. Finally, after 3 explanations, we understood what they were laughing about. Charlie had ordered 6 pizzas (remember we have 2 teenage boys and we have 3 extra kids staying with us this week). Tonight there was a special buy-one-get-one-free promotion going that we didn't know about, so Charlie had really ordered 12 pizzas. Except they were out of the large pizza boxes so they had to cut each pizza in half and put each half in a small box - thus we ended up with 24 boxes of pizza! We were passing out pizza to people on the street on the way home. Our guard had pizza, the neighbor's guard had pizza and there was still enough to fill two ziploc bags that I put in the freezer. I'm glad my kids like pizza for breakfast.
