Original story: I was working on a story in one of my neighborhoods earlier this week when I happened across a pizza place I actually used to deliver pizzas for a long time ago. It had been years since I had been back last. I stopped in, looked around and the place hadn't changed much at all. Neither had the pizza.
It was just as delicious as it was when I worked there more than a decade ago. I didn't have time to order my personal favorite, but I ordered a tried-and-true favorite: A medium pepperoni. How could I go wrong?
I was immediately transported back to my late-teens, early-20s. I'd like to give a lucky reader a chance to have a similar experience, if not one all their own.
The lucky reader to correctly guess where this pizza came from and how much it cost, including tax will get receive a gift certificate for the same total price.
