What happens at a bachelorette party, should stay at a bachelorette party. Especially the party favors.
Since I’ll soon be moving to start my residency, I’m in the process of crossing a number of things off my bucket list. Because this is me we’re talking about, most of that involves eating food from some of our local restaurants.
On this particular day, I was quite exhausted (I’m still a bit worn out post-surgery) and decided that I’d cross one food off the list by ordering pizza. Now, to be honest I was more ordering pizza as an excuse to order breadsticks, but I can’t be faulted for that.
Anyway, my food finally came and I answered the door to the delivery guy, a man probably in his 60s. He was quite nice and polite at first. However, I had to set down my pizza in order to sign the receipt, giving the delivery man a view of my entire apartment.
He then got quite awkward, glared at me, yanked the receipt away from me after I signed it, and didn’t even respond to my polite “Have a nice day!”
For the life of me, I couldn’t at first figure out what had happened. My apartment was quite clean and I thought I looked rather presentable myself.
Then, I looked at the table that had been moved to right by my front door, and I realized what happened.
My delivery man was obviously put off by the large, hot pink penis straw (or “Sippy Dick,” as the bachelorette had called them) that was the only thing that was sitting on that table.
And yes, I had not noticed the presence of the penis straw on my table for 3 days…don’t ask me how that happened.
Eliminate Awkward Moments Pizza Margherita
- Pizza dough for 1 pizza (I normally use the Cuisinart recipe since that’s what I have, but any uncooked pizza dough from the store will do)- make sure you leave this on the counter for 20-30 minutes to come to room temperature.
- Olive oil spray
- 3 tbsp pesto
- 1 medium tomato or 3 campari tomatoes, sliced thinly
- 3-4 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced
- Garlic salt
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Spray pizza pan with olive oil. Take pizza dough and spread out on the pan. If it’s not stretching, give it a few minutes and try again.
- Spray pizza dough with olive oil (this will help the crust brown). Spread pesto over the crust up to 1in from the edge.
- Artfully arrange the tomato and mozzarella slices. Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper.
- Bake for 14-18 minutes or until crust is crispy. Remove from oven, cut into slices, and serve.
P.S. I graduated from medical school yesterday- I am now officially an M.D.!
