A cold Monday night after a hard day’s work.
Nothing much to look forward to except thawed out soup, an NRL game I don’t really care about and a good night’s sleep.
And another solid day at work when I awake.
Then I see the Happy Camper Pizza Facebook post about how they’re all set up and ready to go at Yarraville Gardens.
It’s way too cold for that sort of carry on, IMO.
But home delivery?
Oh yeah, that sounds real good.
I last spoke with Remi at a Footscray game at the Western Oval, him mentioning then that delivery service was in the works.
So I phone up … and get the man himself taking my order.
From the menu at the Happy Camper website, I choose the Playing With Fire with tomato, mozzarella, hot salami, olives and red onion.
No more than about 15 minutes later, it’s Remi who cheerfully hand delivers my pizza, with which I get a cute fridge magnet and a one-off $10 off offer if, next time, I order through Delivery Hero.
I pay $14 for my pizza plus a $3 delivery fee – not really economical for solo dining, but pretty good for two or more.
As for my pizza … well I really am a happy camper.
It’s not particularly fiery but it IS a whole heap better than your typical home-delivered pizza.
It’s delicious, with a beaut crust.
I wonder if I am the only home delivery this night that involves a customer clad in Spongebob pyjamas …
