Pizza Prints

The other day, my son was eating a piece of pizza.

Instead of simply eating it, he commenced a full examination. He examined every crack and crevice. "Mama," he said after he was finished. "Did you know that every slice of pizza is unique - like a fingerprint?"

"Well, Bubba," I said. "I hadn't really thought of it. But I suppose you're right."

"Yes, I am." He flipped the piece over. "Look at the oven burn here. It's unique. No other piece has marks like that." Then he grinned. "I know what they are."

"What are they, Bubba?"

"Pizza prints!"

Okay. So, ladies and gentlemen, next time you eat a piece of pizza, flip the thing over (careful not to lose the toppings) and check out the pizza prints!

  1. Hi, dear Sherry!

    I enjoyed this latest Bubba-ism. Your son and I had a similar experience. The other day I gazed at a slice of pizza I was eating and noticed that it was an exact replica of the ceiling art in the Sistine Chapel! :)

    Have a happy Thursday, dear friend Sherry!

  4. I'm guessing the pizza wasn't exciting enough in itself

    1. Apparently not. I'm glad he found a way to make it more interesting.

  8. Does Bubba ever do anything the simple, normal way? I hope not.

    Love,

    1. No. Nothing is simple and normal with him. I've been wondering if he'll ever outgrow it. I'm thinking it might be a permanent character trait. It'll make for an interesting life!

  11. But unlike fingerprints, pizza prints disappear! Bubba has such a good outlook on life.

    1. Yes. They can be ingested. But it's fun to see them while they last. :)

  12. That is so interesting. I guess that goes for any type of food that didn't come from a mold. They are all unique.

  15. What a fun train of thought! Then again, that always seems to be the case when it comes to Bubba... :)

  16. Sounds like a smart kid...but not sure I want mine flipping over each of their pieces like that. I think they'd get into it a little too much.

  17. I never thought about pizza that way before. I'll have to look next time I have some.
