An Open Letter to Eli of Eli's Pizza, Elizabeth, NJ


Dear Eli,

Why do you do this to me? You know I can't be trusted with garlic bread and yet when I order it with my Caesar Salad you deliver it.

What is wrong with you?

Do you know what I did to that poor garlic bread today? I tore off the crusts and ate the soft garlic-y and buttery middle on, like, almost half a loaf! Half a loaf!

And then I took the crusts and dipped them in the leftover dressing (which you did, like an angel, put on the side of the salad and for that, at least, I'm grateful) and ate, oblivious to the crumbs which gathered in the corners of my mouth, until I thought I might burst.

It's high time you take responsibility for your actions. Or at least take the garlic bread off the menu.

Love,
Kate

P.S. I think your croutons could be bigger.

That is SO hilarious.

But I hope MP doesn't read it.

I hate when they do that. The local place by me insists on putting home made bread in with every order.
Hot, fresh baked bread. It should be illegal.

ugh. I've been on a diet for a month to fit into a too-snug bridesmaid's dress for my sister's wedding on 8/08. And at then end of the night I'm going to unzip that dress and fall face first into the leftover wedding cake.

Kate said...
