The Embarrassment


Looked out the window before going to bed last night and realized we had left the porch light on. We’d turned it because we were getting food delivered and it’s nice to give the delivery person a fighting chance at finding our house. And then, you know, we just kept forgetting to turn it off. And yes, over multiple days. You know, you approach the house, think, “I have to turn the light off soon as I get in”, and then you get in and all memory of planning to do anything is forgotten. And the light stays on. We’re not sure just how long it was on, but I’m pretty sure it’s connected to the “Is Detroit-Style Pizza Even A Real Thing?” dispute, so we would’ve turned it on sometime in August of 2015. We’re still not sure “Detroit-Style Pizza” is a thing. I mean, they make it square, yes, but that’s just … square.

    1. It’s a thought!

      Apparently partisans of Detroit-style pizza explain it’s served square — the local chain that claims to offer it does make them as square pizzas cut into four smaller squares — and that the cheese and ‘toppings’ are put underneath the tomato sauce. That would be a legitimate and interesting variation, but the local take-out place advertising its Detroit-style pizza does not seem to do this.

      Now, coney dogs are definitely a Michigan thing, and olive burgers a Mid-Michigan thing.
