Pizza Hut

Wednesday, 10 Oct 2007 | Childhood, Memories

I drove past a Pizza Hut restaurant the other day. It was one of the old fashioned ones that actually has a dining room in it. The one I'm referring to happens to be in Palm Springs. I've eaten in that Pizza Hut. They have a buffet lunch that's served there during the week.

Most Pizza Huts, like the one near my house, are now take out and delivery only restaurants. They have a few seats to sit in while you wait for your pizza to bake. There's no dining room whatsoever. It's kind of sad to me that most of them don't allow dining in.

Although the Pizza Hut in Palm Springs has a dining room, its not really like the ones I remember in the older restaurants. There's something comforting and nostalgic about those older dining rooms. Don't get me wrong. They weren't fancy restaurants. Far from it. But, the memory of eating there holds a certain nostalgia for me. I think it's just a bit of my childhood that I remember fondly.

There's actually a lot of fond childhood memories I hold dear. You know, the kind of memories that when you think about them, you feel warm and cozy and safe. It's a really content happiness I feel when I think back on them. I want to remember more of these types of memories. Whenever I think about one, I will write about it so I can remember and get that warm, safe feeling again like I did when I was a child.

Anyway, eating at Pizza Hut and having a thin crust pepperoni pizza is one of those memories.
