Timeline Ftying Pie's Unreasonable history
Is it reasonable to transport pizzas and dough mix to Alaska in 17 hours, by car, then helicopter, then plane, then
puddle jumper, just to amaze someone who can't get pizza delivered in less than 3 days? Is it reasonable to punctuate
a city building with an exclamation mark? No! And that's exactly why we did it. For some, being mediocre is reasonable;
for Flying Pie, being amazing and unreasonable is all in a day's work.
