Glass of red wine, bottle tipped over“How long ago did you order that pizza?” Sheralynn tipped her wine glass to catch the last drop.

“And did you get half pineapple and veggie for me, half megameat for you?”

Resigned to having to use one foot to clothe the other, he didn’t answer.

“Rodney! I know it’s Shutdown, but it’s been 2 ½ hours now!”

“What? Do you need more wine?”

“No! When did you order the pizza?!”

“I didn’t do it,” he sighed. “Didn’t you?”

Carrot Ranch Prompt (04/02/2020): In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that includes pizza. It can be an original pizza pie (or slice) or something pizza-like. Go where the prompt leads!

Microfiction Madness April’s Photo Prompt: For an extra challenge use the phrase, “I didn’t do it”. Stories can be drabbles or longer flash fiction, or you can write poems. Have fun.
