One of the great joys of creating and raising a child is being there to witness them experiencing the many delights the world has to offer. It’s exciting to watch them hear music, or see a new animal, for the first time. And who could ever forget witnessing the beauty of a baby’s first slice of pizza?

Podcaster Jody Avirgan (30 for 30, 538) captured a picture of his daughter experiencing this important moment in every young girl’s life. As you can tell from the photo, she looks as if she’s experiencing some sort of religious epiphany.

Twitter seemed grateful that Avirgan and his daughter were there to remind us all how we should be enjoying the greatest of humanity’s culinary achievements.

And while Avirgan said he appreciated all the attention, it’s important to note that he lives in Brooklyn, so he also had a message for all the Chicago pizza places retweeting his photo.
