Ooooooh I just have to tell you, Marco's Pizza at 5905 Bluffton Road here in Waynedale, (in what has come to be known as Wayne Plaza) has won my partial forgiveness. They've gone and done something that has touched my heart. They've brought out a square pizza with 16-square slices (and that's even according to their advertisement).

The last time my little tubby hubby and I were there, we bought round pizzas and they cut them like they were square and you could play a Tic Tac Toe game on...
