Secret Pizza Word Number 3 Is In Play

Remember my Secret Pizza Word? I have a homemade coupon in my wallet with a not-super-common but not-totally-obscure word written on it. It’s my Secret Pizza Word. If you say it around me, we have to stop what we are doing, and I will buy you a slice of pizza. (Or we can schedule it if we need to. Either way, pizza is happening. Soon.)

The original entry from 2009 is here; winner number one was Allison, winner number two was Caylin, and then I stopped doing it for a while.

It got reinstated because back in October when I was visiting San Francisco, I went out to dinner with Gavin, Sophia, Dan and Kimberly, who told me I should. They would do it, too, they said, but instead of them choosing their own words, they asked me to pick words for them. I did, and then Gavin picked one for me. It’s a particularly good one, which is what happens when you’re friends with writers.

There are now five people that have secret pizza words. I am officially declaring myself a movement starter. You should do one, too, and if you do, let me know about it. If you would like me to pick one for you, you can leave a comment and I’ll email you.

    Secret pizza word is awesome! I would love for you to pick a word for me and I will happily play along. Do you change your word after someone says it, or you keep the same word?

    I have to confess that I forgot the word I picked for you. It might have something to do with all that wine I had before I picked it. Does that make me eligible to guess it?

    Oh my God I remember this! You were so freaking excited! Maybe I’ll start doing a pizza word, too.

    Do you know I’ve been walking around with a secret pizza word for THREE YEARS and no one has gotten it?

    I love my word, but maybe it’s too hard?
