percy's pizza

  • Percy:"Remind me again-why do you hate me so much?"
  • Annabeth:"I don't hate you."
  • Percy:"Could've fooled me."
  • Annabeth:She folded her cap of invisibility. "Look...we're just not supposed to get along, okay? Our parents are rivals."
  • Percy:"Why?"
  • Annabeth:She sighed. "How many reasons do you want? One time my mom caught Poseidon with his girlfriend in Athena's temple, which is hugely disrespectful. Another time, Athena and Poseidon competed to be the patron god for the city of Athens. Your dad created some stupid saltwater spring for his gift. My mom created the olive tree. The people saw that her gift was better, so they named the city after her."
  • Percy:"They must really like olives."
  • Annabeth:"Oh, forget it."
  • Percy:"Now, if she'd invented pizza-that I could understand.”

After a Yankee game last month, a few buddies and myself adventured into the village for some drinking, pizza, and good times. Compliments to Uber for hooking it up with a ride across Manhattan. Upon arrival, we came across a dollar slice place called Percy’s Pizza located on Bleecker Street. If you know a thing or two about dollar slice places in NYC, they are usually run down and sketchy. Percy’s was not. Very clean and brick-walled counter serve, had a Little Italy feel to it. Without saying a word, we walked in and this little spanish guy goes “HOW MANY?” I first picked up one to see if it was worth a second. And for a dollar slice it was well worth over a dollar! Probably one of the best dollar slice spots I have ever been to. Now I know the photo is a tad deceiving, but trust me it is worth it. 

However… my friends and I ventured back an hour later and decided to get a pie. $8 is worth a pie. The guy wanted to charge us $12! Now I’m no mathematician but there are eight slices to a pie and at a dollar a piece how are they selling pies at $12?! Nonetheless, I just ordered 8 SEPARATE slices *puts on cool dude shades*.

Annabeth had been looking for Percy for a while now. She needed his help with something. The only place she hadn’t checked was his cabin. Why hadn’t she checked there first? When she got to his cabin she could hear him talking to someone from inside. “I know we haven’t known each other for long, but I want to spend the rest of my life with you…” he said.

Annabeth couldn’t believe her ears. From what she heard it sounded like he was talking to another girl. She continued to listen.

“Anyways, would you- will you marry me?”

That was the last straw. Annabeth kicked the door open “PERSEUS JACKSON WHAT ARE YOU-“ She stopped when she realized there was nobody else in the cabin. There was only a terrified looking Percy sitting next to an open box on his bed. There was a pizza slice on the floor that he must’ve dropped when she screamed at him. Annabeth hit her forehead and shook her head. “Percy, what on earth are you doing?” she asked as if he were an annoying dog that had peed on the carpet.

Percy looked sadly at the pizza slice on the floor. “…Proposing to my pizza?”

“You’re an idiot.”

“But I love pizza.”

“You’re lucky you’re cute Seaweed Brain.”

“So… what did you need?”

“I don’t remember now. Eat your pizza lover boy.”
