Pizza Eating

For  Saturday lunch Mabel wore the necklace she had just finished making with Grandma. First she ventured across the street with me to a by-the-slice pizza place where we picked out three different slices for three different people and carried them back across the street to the apartment in a pizza box. Then we unpacked the warm slices onto plates and sat down at the table for our splendid meal. Mabel likes pizza.

Eating did not slow down the complicated mealtime conversation. Mabel has strong viewpoints on every subject and the eloquence to make her viewpoints known. But there would be a pause now and then in the flow of opinion to allow for another excellent bite.
