What follows is in response to the 100 Word Challenge, authored by the big fish in the small pond of 100 Word Literature, Velvet Verbosity. The word this week is "Anchovies".
"Did you order the pizza, Honey", she asked.
"Yes, I did, Darling."
"Sausage and mushroom, right?"
"Well ... yeah. I think the guy that answered the phone just got off the boat. He kept tryin' to get me to add ingredients. So I went for some spices - ah ... basilico and aglio. Basil and garlic. Oh. And some exotic called acciughe."
"I don't know - but he kept saying 'molto buona' - so whatever it is, it must be good."
"Just as long as it isn't anchovy. I HATE anchovies on pizza."
"No. No anchovies. I know better than that. Trust me."
p.s. Just in case you don't speak Italian ... 'acciughe' is the plural of 'acciuga' - anchovy.
