It’s amazing how services like Pizarea can bring people together… I met Fred a year ago at papas pizza, he’s always been a workaholic and it had affected our relationship these past few months. I could not forgive him if he missed this special day of love, forgetting my birthday was enough. Mind you, I’m not looking for something extravagant just a me-and-you time with a bottle of Coca-Cola and my favourite “no Kissing babe” pizza from Papas Pizza.
It’s 7:15 pm, and he hasn’t texted me or called and as I figured, there it was switched off. Eeiii, Abrante3 yi paa… I sadly lamented. Meanwhile my roommate NanaAma, got a pizza delivery from Eddy’s Pizza East Legon, apparently Joojo the darling boy placed an order online on a platform called Pizarea!
Hmmm…why me? I could hear the other girls whispering about my mood, as they teased “girl no wa gnashi”, yet still I wanted to wait for a while before I blacklisted Fred!!!
Then hours later, I heard a knock…. it was unexpected, unimaginable, my heart missed a beat!
Oh my word… He remembered!
A delivery guy handed me my favourite “no Kissing babe” pizza, Fried rice with grilled chicken and a bottle of St. Michael Fruit juice with a card that read… I hope I’m not too late! Will you be my valentine? Will pick you up at 10 PM. Come and see smiles as I dug into my wardrobe searching for the red crop top and the high waist jeans I bought from a popular boutique. In no time I was ready and busily waiting…shame on all the haters I thought out loud.
Fred picked me up at 10 and gave me the best treat ever, I couldn’t have asked for more.
As we journeyed back, he confessed… Sweetheart I totally forgot, I was engaged in a meeting for hours, had it not been for my colleagues who referred me to Pizarea, I know you would have left me for good. It’s saved me the long queues, it was very responsive, and most importantly it saved us. As I laid down, I kept repeating, thank you Pizarea I owe you my man!……from a loyal pizarea customer a year ago!
