Friday Wisdom – Pizza

Just around dinner time I said, “I feel like a pizza.”

“Funny you don’t look like a pizza.” replied my father.

More wisdom next week,

  1. It’s up there with, “I’m hungry.”
    “Hello, hungry. I’m Dad.”


    • Yes, that was my grandmother’s line when I walked into the kitchen on day and said, “I’m thirsty.”
      “Well, hello thirsty, I am Leona.”

      I still mention that line to my therapists…

  2. Classic Dad humor.


  3. Great post and comments just as interesting πŸ˜€ !!!


  4. Sounds like my brother’s sense of humor. When he was a taxicab dispatcher:
    Caller: “Can you send a cab to 123 Maple?”
    My brother: “Sure thing.”
    Caller: “How long will it be?
    My brother: “Oh, about 13 feet.”

  5. Because I trained as a speech pathologist I was accustomed to listening to people with speech defects who may have been difficult to understand by some. So as a bonus for this kind of work I find it pretty easy to understand foreign accents.

    Cute joke, Andrew. Now you’ll have all of us using that line.

    My husband and I will find a good movie to watch on Demand. Of course, what goes better with a movie than popcorn, right? So I say to him, “Make us some popcorn.” I’m sure you can guess the reply but… “Poof, we’re popcorn.”

    I get the same line from my son all the time.


  9. Ah yes, good one. Like “Sometimes a road is simply a dead end”.

    When I married my 2nd husband (he was from Brooklyn), I gave him the same response when he said “I feel like (whatever food).” I had never in my life heard that statement before, and I was 23 at the time.

    You’ll find it funny to know that when I introduced my future husband to my parents, he’d ask “what did they say?” and my parents would ask, “what did he say?” I ended up translating for them from deep south to New York City and back again. πŸ™‚


    • Well, New York is a bit of a foreign country. I was in England a couple years ago and my wife’s family comment on my strong California accent. Dudes, really, I made a big effort to reduce the number of, “Dudes,” “Cool”, and “You know like,”s from my conversation. Go figure.
