When I got to his house, he ordered the pizza and asked if I was

the score is a tie at zero-zero.
Reminds me of many years ago when I was in New Orleans and a street
kid came up to me and said "I bet I know where you got them boots."
Considering that my boots were genuine elephant-skin made custom by a
boot maker in Las Vegas, I figured that the kid had mistaken the
maker for someone local. So I asked him "How much?" and he answered
I said "Okay, you got a bet." and the kid replied "You got them boots
on Bourbon Street." Considering that I was currently standing on
Bourbon street in the french Quarter, I saw how I had been tricked.
In any event, I paid the kid $5 and the next kid who asked me the
same question, I qualified the bet but had no takers.
