I took the Watertown exit and then Tabs' Crush attempted to direct me from there. Ha! We ended up making a complete circle.
At about 11:45 we both decided we were starving. But we were out in the sticks, everything closes early. Just as we were both bitching about how we could really go for some pizza, but knew we were out of luck, we zipped past an *OPEN* Domino's Pizza!
I slammed on the brakes and threw the car in reverse. I swear, we acted like two people who had been lost for days without food! We practically ran inside the store.
We surveyed the menu and established that we wanted a large. Then we went down the list of toppings, one by one.
Sausage? "Ew, no. It's way too late to eat heavily like that..."
That eliminated any meat toppings.
Hot Peppers? "Gak..."
Green Peppers? "Yeah!"
We placed an order for a large green pepper and onion pizza. And it just so happened they had one coming out of the oven at that moment. Wow! Talk about perfect! (They must have known we were lost in the neighborhood...)
"You know, Liz," Tabs' Crush said, "we should be thankful that we got lost..."
I gave her a look. "Not quite," I answered.
"Darn. I tried," she said. Then we both laughed.
We finally figured out where we needed to be, so we arrived at about 12:15 a.m. We sat in her living room with her roommates tiny dogs staring at us hungrily as we ate the pizza.
There was nothing in particular on TV at that point, so we watched one of the Superman movies on The Disney Channel. Now THAT was funny. I haven't seen Superman since I was at least 10.
The whole rest of the evening we spent making fun of Lois Lane and mimicking the 3 bad guys in the black vinyl outfits: "Kneel before Zorg...!"
By 12:45 a.m. I finally left and went home. I dropped into bed at 1:10 a.m. What a 4th of July...!
