Pizza at tea.

At tea in the common room we normally share sandwiches and hot Twinings. Today we enjoyed pizza, one slice per person. My slice had seven pieces of mushroom, three of sausage, and approximately eleven of green onion. There were less than twenty flecks of red pepper. There was a casual silence in the room as we enjoyed our tea and pizza snack. The nurse kept a quiet head down, as I think she is used to this routine. She looked through her purse and ultimately pulled out a compact, some knitting, and a bottle of water. I have remembered this.
