conversation in line for pizza, west hollywood, 12:49 a.m.

GUY IN FRONT OF ME, TO GUY BEHIND THE COUNTER:

I’ll have a slice of the spinach pizza. The E. coli pizza.

ME:

I’ll have the same. [TO GUY IN FRONT OF ME] Did you just say E. coli pizza?

GUY:

Yeah.

ME:

I guess I feel like taking risks tonight.

GUY:

E. coli is the best diet.

Starvation is a better diet. And you don't have to spend money on food!

It's been four days now and I haven't gotten sick. On the other hand, I haven't gotten skinny either.

The poor guy behind the counter probably hears that comment about 17 times a day.

Spoken like someone who's had the joy of working retail! (I used to work at a bookstore that was next door to an Oxygen bar. I can't tell you how many "I can get air for free!" comments I heard.)
