Pizza with the Works

By Beth Beutler
1     "I'll have the works," Susanna said. She and her friend Betsy were at Pizza Palace, a noisy, bright, festive restaurant where it was common to see people celebrating. Betsy was treating Susanna to a large pizza for her birthday. It was November 12.
 
2     "She's crazy," Betsy thought as she sat in the vinyl booth across from Susanna. "Doesn't she realize that ‘the works' includes anchovies? Yuck!" Betsy didn't have a problem with meat, onions, or even pineapple on her pizza. But she drew the line at anchovies, even if she was treating a friend!
 
3     As if she read Betsy's thoughts, the waitress asked Susanna, "Would you like anchovies with that?"
 
4     "Hmmm," said Susanna.
 
5     "Please don't order them!" thought Betsy. She appealed to Susanna with a direct look into her eyes.
 
6     Ignoring the look, Susanna said, "You know, I've never had anchovies before. What are they, anyway?"
 
7     "They are tiny fish, usually packed in oil," the waitress explained. "To be honest, not many people order them."
 
8     Betsy could not resist adding, "They taste terrible! They are very salty, like sardines."
