The family had no idea that little Luigi would grow up to be.

The family pizza business was booming.   The family tradition was passed down in the old country.  In the new country, there were two ways to afford feeding your family.  Groceries or restaurant.   The big family pushed pies out across the neighborhood.

The Catholic family had it’s place, save one.   Luigi.  He was allergic to tomatoes.   The family hid him.  His private school was said to be exclusive.  But how can a pizza place have an allergic child in it?  No one would eat what made their own sick.

The family already contributed one to the church,  Father Salvatore, and one to the army.  A second either placewould be admitting they couldn’t afford their kids.

The plan worked for Twenty-three years.   When college came and went, he was on his own.   The county government made him health inspector.  He doesn’t visit much any more.
