After Mom dropped me off at Dad’s office, Dad and I headed to his car and drove up to Otto’s Pizza. I ordered water as my drink, but rather than tap water, I received bottled water. Dad later explained to me that there was a water break in Portland, Maine, so the fountains and tap water were not necessarily safe to drink. I ordered mashed potato, bacon, and scallion pizza, the kind I always get when I go to Otto’s. Dad and I talked about my friends, family, and school. It was great bonding time.
Every year I look forward to the individual Festibond dates I have with Dad and Mom. This year Dad and I decided to have dinner at Otto’s Pizza before going to a Portland Pirates’ hockey game. I read and studied the rules of hockey ahead of time so that I would be prepared.
At Otto’s I ordered a mashed potato, bacon and scallion pizza, which was better than I remembered. I enjoyed talking with Dad about what I thought of homeschool and who I thought was going to win the hockey game.
Skye and I went to Otto’s Pizza and a Portland Pirates’ game for our Festibond date. It was her idea, and I was pretty excited about it.
During the drive to Portland we talked about Skye’s relationships with her sisters, Festibond, homeschool and what it’s like to be an adolescent girl. It was nice to get to know Skye better and have some exclusive time with her.
Otto’s was good, as usual. Skye ordered her favorite slice: mashed potato, bacon, and scallion. I got one of those and a pepperoni (the sauce is crazy delish). We continued our conversation from the drive, which was nice.
