Me. Alone in my apartment in my black microfleece robe. You. A Large 1-Topping Pizza and Small Cheese Sticks from Assante’s for $14.99. As I sit in my apartment alone watching reruns of The Daily Show, hoping to dull the pain of waiting for your arrival, I start to think, ‘Should I cook something? I should probably cook something instead. I don’t have a lot of money right now. Would it be douchey to cancel at this point? Can you even cancel an EatStreet order?’
‘SILENCE,’ I say to quiet my doubts.
You deserve this. Assante’s deserves this. Just the thought of that cheese stick, slowly dripping the ranch onto my lap as I take my first bite quells all my doubts. Forty minutes later, my phone rings. A local cell phone number. Is it a woman requesting my sweet sweet love at a surprisingly late time of night? No. It’s Assante’s. Even better.
The wait in the elevator is unbearable. I can’t control it anymore. A mouthful of drool makes itself known. As I swallow it down to hide it from the delivery man, he enters the door. I sign the paper and sprint back to the elevator. Unable to wait, I start eating the cheese sticks in the elevator and I spill the ranch. I stare in horror. The elevator reaches my floor, the doors close, and I cannot move. Creamy deliciousness lies there helpless on the floor. A tear slowly comes down from my face. Then another. And another. I then know what I have to do.
With tears in my eyes, I dip the cheesy stick into the ranch. It tastes as good as I remember. Nothing can stop me now. Not shame, not dignity — nothing. The elevator begins to move and opens on the 2nd floor. ‘I’ll take the stairs,’ Dwayne, the cool guy from the 2nd floor says to me. I say nothing, but my eyes say everything.
After an hour of this excessive mixture of pain and pure joy, I finally retreat to my bed. As I lay down, I look up at the ceiling and think to myself, ‘I’m really fat.’

I stumble home from the bar with a girl around my arm. But I end up having a threesome with orange chicken and fried rice because my roommate ordered way too much food again while watching Adventure Time.

My favorite type of Foodie Call is when it’s around 9 P.M. and I haven’t eaten dinner yet. I know deep down in my soul that I want a pineapple pizza, but I can’t bring myself to spend the money. I look around my apartment and try to convince myself that I can eat ramen for dinner… again. But the pizza wins. I go to EatStreet.com, use my the great pizza coupon (so I don’t have to spend tons of money!), and place my order. Within the hour, a delicious pineapple and pepperoni pizza with lots of garlic butter is mine – ALL MINE. Then I go to bed happy and dream of unicorns and chocolate.

7. #FoodieCallNotBootieCall @AlexGrajewski
A seductive juicy burger with steaming hot melted cheese and sautéed onions that make men kill for. Also, a side of hot crispy steak fries as big as your arm, dipped in creamy ranch. All this after a night of drinking and looking for a 3:30 am foodie call.

6. #Food4Thought @MechERacer
The midnight pizza call in the Mechanical Engineering Lab. When the pizza gets there… for a moment… I am home. Then I finish eating and reality sets in – I am at the lab still -.-

A 3-4 a.m. foodie call is my typical love. I’m talkin’ about a desperate reach out for my favorite baked and/or fried foods. Gumby’s is my late-night salvation and EatStreet is my post-light savior. Deliver to me, O ye Pizza Gods.

4. #PokeyStix @MrNik0
The one and only. The cheesiest, warmest, “garlicy-est” munchies ever. And the best freaking deal of mankind. I’m talking about, of course, the world famous Gumby’s Pokey Stix!

When my roommate and I play Madden for Wings Over Madison on EatStreet. He gets incredibly mad when he’s always on EatStreet buying me wings, but hey, at least he’s getting a lot of coupons.
Vote for Eric by retweeting.
I order Jose’s Cuban and Sandwich Deli for most of my meals. I got flooded out out of my room so I don’t have a kitchen and my car broke down so I can’t go buy groceries. Foodie Calls to Jose’s have been sustaining me for over a month.
