Pizza in its usual form is a large circle, and the nexus of two exes lets us have eight pieces. These pieces are wide at the crust, and thin at the top, creating the familiar pizza eater's triangle, that area where reality is lost, and nothing but the person and his pizza exist.
All this seems normal. Although there are other variations, such as the square, or ten slices, the idea of eight triangler pieces from crust to point is ubiquitous.
The question though is how to eat it. For some unknown reason i have it in my head that pizza eating starts at the point and proceeds toward the wider side. This seems quite odd, as when i am eating it, it gets progerssively harder to eat, and my mouth gets dirty as it fumbles through the oily terrain. Further, the crust is usually tasteless, thus when i get to it, i want to throw it out. So, instead, i eat the crust near last, but not actually last, and then i can end off on a good note.
All this until i saw a friend of mine eat it from the other end. Ding! That makes so much sense. I tried it and liked it. Though, old habits are hard to break. It also still doesn't feel "correct".
