When there's a "special instructions" field or similar in online order forms, I like to put stuff like "Reminisce about the last time you had a desert that was surprisingly good" or "sing your favorite song to yourself while you're preparing the pizza". I'm sure some people just eye-roll at it, but I hope it makes some percentage of random people smile at least.

@benhamill Worst case: somebody thinks you're weird or silly. Best case: somebody's day actually is improved. It's win/win/win really.

@benhamill haha, yes, and I was about to say that's even only bad if they think weird is a bad thing. I happen to think it's a good thing in 99% of situations
