When I was a co-ed at BYU, I had a young man cancel our plans for the evening because he had been informed of an opportunity for a free slice or two of pizza.
Yes, this young man had actively been engaged in pursuing me for a few weeks.
The kicker? He thought bringing over a half-dead flower he picked out of someone else's landscaping would make up for his lame sauce drenched behavior.
Newsflash - no woman wants to be less important than a slice of free pizza. Ever.
