Sometimes it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. So although our family and friends aren’t rich or famous, we’re not below using their careers for our adventures.
In this case, my brother is a manager for Pizza Hut. While that may not be the most glamorous career around, if you’ve got a 5-year-old who had a school field trip to a pizza place and was disappointed because he didn’t get to make his own pizza as promised, it’s perfect to have a brother in high pizza places.
We headed to the Hut just after 10 in the morning with seven kids, ages 2-7, and four parents, including the aforementioned pizza guy. My brother helped the kids enter their orders in the computer and then allowed each of them to make their own personal pan pizza, and ended with a tour of the kitchen while the pizzas cooked.
The kids had a great time, and the best part was eating the pizzas when they were done.
You may never have thought about it, but your family and friends’ careers may be an adventure waiting to happen!
I liked watching the pizzas go through the oven.
