Not everyone is blessed with an aunt so concerned that she would actually be worried for every household in the town, I was blessed with an aunt like that and well, my journey since childhood has had a million episodes of her paranoid seriousness towards different people in the town.

I tried ordering a pizza online at first given my lack of short talk and evasion of phone calls but every time I clicked Authenticate via IVR it redirected me to choose a pizza and well, I gave up on that. Then I picked up the phone and did something that I would almost ever avoid, placed a call. I ordered the … [Read more...] about Will My Experiences With Dominos Always Stay Bizarre?
