Love at the first sight of pizza

When Sally Olson bit into her first slice of pizza at Geno’s Restaurant on February 14, 1963, she was hooked – both on pizza and the guy who’d bought it for her. “I’d never had pizza before,” she recalled. “I loved it!” The Lewis and Clark High School senior had also never been on a blind date, but her friend talked into to a double date with a couple of airmen from Larson Air Force Base in Moses Lake. “I said absolutely not. I don’t do blind dates. But she kept talking and talking …” Sally said/Cindy Hval, SR Love Story. More here.

DFO: I met the future Mrs. O at a church Valentine's Banquet (circa 1973). She and her friend were busting up because they'd just seen the youth pastor and his wife sit on a bench and break it. I was the guest speaker that night. How did you meet your significant other?
