|08:45 am - Pizza, Night, and a Wink|
On my way into work one morning, I was sitting at the stoplight at Neil and Lane Avenues. I looked out of my window, off to the north east corner, and through the window to Tommy's Pizza.
Sitting there, at the corner table, was a beautiful woman. Light was in her eyes, but her hair was black and smooth. She was not young, but neither was she old; ageless was her age. There was laughter about her, but her manner hid it. She sat, leaning forward, gazing out the window and smiling at me.
I knew her, an old friend. Her name resonated in my mind.
Night. Daughter of Chaos, mother of Eris.
I watched her watch me, as she sat at the table in Tommy's. Her eyes twinkled, never leaving mine. Her long-fingered hands reached out, wrapping around a glass of Coke and brought the straw to her full, red lips. I caught a wink as she sipped, and watched her replace the glass on the table. The corners of her mouth twitched in a smile, and I watched her bring a slice of pizza to her mouth. Her eyes closed in pleasure as she savoured the taste, and the satisfied smile that graced her lips was remarkably seductive.
One more wink, and my light turned green. She was gone.

Is it just me, or is it true that no matter where you go, there's always a place named Tommy's Pizza. Are guys named Tommy more likely to open a pizza place?
I think that they are.
Then again, it could be a national chain. . .
No, that reasoning is far too simple.
I think we'd see big time advertisements everywhere if it were a chain. Unless, of course, they don't advertise so that all of them seem like privately owned places. That would be brilliant!
That just makes me think it's a chain owned by the mafia.

It's a local chain, with about half a dozen locations around Columbus. It was founded by Tommy Iacano, and either he or his brother also founded Iacano's, another local chain, which is why their food is remarkably similar.
By the way, Donato's also started as a Columbus chain, but is now a national chain owned by McDonald's.
But what about the ones in RI and MA?

Not part of the Columbus chain. Beyond that I couldn't say.....
I've heard that Tommy's is pretty durn gross.
That's just an aside, though.
Good way to start the morning, I imagine.
Dunno. I've eaten at the one near Half Price Books. Wasn't too bad.
Never eaten at the Lane and Neil one.

Tommy's is my favorite pizza anywhere!
... and you didn't go in and talk to this lovely lady because?
Wait a minute ... you were on your way to work.
Wait. Talking to Nyx seems a lot more important than work.
Tommy's was closed.
It's amazing how goddesses can get service at just about any eatery any time of day.
Well, I know that I'd serve a goddess, even if I was otherwise closed.
