Pizza Town
By Beth Beutler
  

1     I loved to go to Pizza Town. We always had a blast. They had an all-you-can-eat buffet, and several rooms of fun things to do. There was a TV room, a movie room, an adventure room, reading room, and video game room. My grandmother often took me there. She loved it too! We'd play video games and earn points. Once I even earned enough points to win a DVD movie!
 
2     Grandma invited me to go to Pizza Town Friday after school. She had a coupon so two of us could get in for the price of one. She picked me up immediately after school, and we headed there. We had a routine. We'd pay, pick a table in the movie room, then go get the first round of the meal. She'd usually get a salad, but I'd go for one or two pieces of pepperoni pizza. I also treated myself to some soda.
 
3     After we ate, we'd put our coats and her purse in a locker, then head to the video games. She liked playing the Whack a Rat game, and I did the best on the game "Zorpho Battle." In it, I was to fight the evil Zorphman with my army of well-trained and loyal subjects. As I journeyed through each battle, I gained more soldiers and equipment. I also gained more points. I kept the points building up on my card so I could get better prizes.
