Pizza is my favorite food.
But my deeply ingrained love for this delectable dish can’t touch the passion held by self-appointed “Pizza Queen” Emily O’Keefe.
The 20-year-old Canadian student recently won a giveaway hosted by her local Domino’s.
She received 104 free pizza vouchers — enough for two pizzas a week for the next year.
And She Is Really, Really Stoked About It…
Since she’s living paycheck to paycheck, winning this contest meant a LOT to her.
“I’ve described it as the happiest I’ve ever felt and that I no longer need to get married because I’ve reached my ultimate happiness,” she told CBC News.
She expanded on her answer in an interview with Buzzfeed, saying:
My idea of ultimate happiness has always been the feeling you get when you’re at a big party with all of your friends and family celebrating something you all love. Which I always thought would be my wedding.
I can now have a little pizza party every week with a few friends and treat them to some ‘za. And I can do this every week for the rest of the year.
That’s better than a wedding in my opinion.
How cute is that? (Though, she adds, she still hopes to get married eventually — but her wedding has big shoes to fill, having to “top a year of free pizza in [her] heart.”)
And makes me want to go get pizza right now.
Your Turn: What do you think of this girl’s love of free pizza?
