Love Those Spicy Meatballs

Sammy's sausage pizza was a family favorite. My brother Randy and I would always pick one or two of the sausage meatballs off the pizza before we started eating and it was never a problem. I remember one time, however, I went a bit overboard and ate more than half the sausage off the pizza before the rest of the family got to the kitchen to sit down for dinner. When I realized how many pieces I'd consumed and how bare the pizza looked I set about reorganizing the remaining sausage to hide the crime and then placed the pizza back in the package and left the kitchen to disassociate myself with the event. When Mom called us to the table, no one said a word, but the next time we ordered the sausage pizza from Sammy's, Mom served the pizza as soon as Dad brought it home and then before anyone ate, Mom, without a word removed the pieces of sausage from the pizza on my plate and placed them on her pieces, my father's and my brother's while I sat staring at my bare pieces of Sammy's Pizza. It was still good!
