(a little anecdote that might make it into a book someday)
A couple months after a tornado during Hurricane Irma downed a tree across my home and many trees throughout the yard, I decided to order a pizza after a long day of cutting branches and tossing them on a fire. Concerned a delivery driver would question whether the address could possibly be correct, I added “Broken Home” to the portion of the online order form where I could leave special instructions. I was exhausted so I didn’t doubt the wisdom behind my choice of words until the young driver laughed hysterically as he exited his vehicle and began to approach me to finalize the transaction and said, “I’m so sorry for laughing. I hope everybody’s okay. It’s just that… on the way here, I rehearsed how I would explain to a jealous husband that I’m just delivering pizza.”
