“Pizza anyone?” The crowd answered with an enthusiastic roar, and I ducked a tankard as it flew past my ear.
My name is Collen, and I schlep pies for Cosmic Stan’s Any Time Any Place Pizza and Catering. (Here, have a menu.)
We mean what it says. With Cosmic Stan’s, you’re guaranteed fresh, hot pizzas delivered anywhere in space-time, for any size party. Causation and Entropy are optional; if we don’t deliver half an hour before you place the order, your pizza is free.
This party is a big one. Open field, hundreds of big dudes (hairy biker types) already partying, busty waitresses deftly dodging ass-pinches and delivering frothy mugs for the boys.
The invoice calls for six thousand pies. (I’ll be duplicated pretty heavily to cover that many.)
Some event called “Ragnarok.” There are special order notes: “Ask for Wotan,” “Beware of Dog,” and “Leave early.”
Inspired by this week’s Monday Finish the Story prompt:

April Fool’s: No pizza is ever free.
Hahah. This is great, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Free pizza or not.
Well, there was a free pizza. We just took it back before they ordered.
That sounds like a good service – I’ll take a menu, thanks. 🙂 I hope he pays attention to the special notes. That’s one party he really doesn’t want to hang around for! 🙂
Yeah, might mention that big old snake that Thor’s wrastlin’ with, too. Wonder if world serpents like pizza?
Very amusing 🙂
I like the money back guarantee!
It’d be awful handy to have the pizza arrive before you thought to order one. Not so good for the waistline.
I might just gatecrash that party. Ragnarok’s always appealed to me. Wotan sounds like a really cool guy. Can I order six pizzas for twelve o’ clock sharp? (It’s 11.35 a.m. here in the UK right now.) 🙂
I’ve never thought of Odin as a particularly nice guy. Must be the ravens? The grim and mysterious wanderer?
I’m rather fond of Odin/Woden/Wotan. And Hugin and Munin are excellent.
I like that the pizza is delivered before it is ordered otherwise it is free…Must be ESP! 6K is a lot of pizza! 🙂 Well done Dave! Thanks for participating and see you next week? Be well… ^..^
My pleasure, and yeppers.
I love this line! “Causation and Entropy is optional; if we don’t deliver half an hour before you place the order, your pizza is free.” Very entertaining story – I really enjoyed reading it.
You know, I saw the prompt photo last night. When I woke up (at 2AM), the story was already pretty much complete. So I knocked it out, and went back to bed 😛
You did excellent!
Pizza and Sci-Fi a great combo!
Great story, especially with the duplicating help and pizza 😀
Great story, Dave. I love the name of the place. Do they by any chance own a Tardis? It sounds like Dr. Who’s started a pizza restaurant. Well done. 😀 — Suzanne
