I’m a little embarrassed
by how quickly I realized it,
while trying to pretend that I hadn’t.
At all.
It was a dynamic group
with dynamics
not yet discovered.
Old friends.
Both sexual
Sometimes simultaneous.
Desires ignored.
By them.
But I had to be me.
Don’t judge.
I made my move.
Listen, they knew as well as I did:
3 people, 8 slices of pizza.
Someone was going to get screwed.

    Some one get’s screwed, but two people take advantage… you learn fractions early with a bunch of siblings.
    Or you play: you cut or pour, I choose.
    aka: I don’t care if you spat on the big piece.

    LOL! You should come around to my house during the fast (Ramadaan) when they only give you four pieces of cake and there’s 5 ppl at the table. We watch each other like hawks.

    Awesome. I’ll let you eat the 8th slice.

  4. hahaha – you did the right thing.

    you could tear a piece in half. which is polite, but always ends up with the cheese falling off.
