On the night of my 21st birthday, my friends and I were witnesses to a miracle. We were gathered in our triple decker apartment on Mission Hill, pre-gaming and waiting for it to be midnight so that we could head to the bar for my first legal drinks. As a surprise, my friends ordered a Domino’s pizza, stuck candles in it, and sang Happy Birthday to me. This was very sweet & wonderful of them, but we didn’t even know that in the meantime, a miracle was happening right below our feet.
Midnight struck so we headed out of my third floor apartment, excited to show off my passport and order ridiculous drinks. When we reached the front porch of the house we lived in, we couldn’t believe our eyes. Sitting there on a chair was a Domino’s Heat Wave delivery bag, filled with 3 warm pizzas, and no delivery person to be found.
Years later, we still have no idea why the pizzas were left there. We can only imagine that it was the universe perfectly aligning to give me the best birthday present possible. 21st birthday crown on my head and a belly full of pizza, we did shots at the bar and fell asleep later fat and happy.
