As I reflect upon Thanksgiving, a sweet story comes to mind. Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks, to appreciate each other and the things you have, and to help each other out all in the spirit of Thanksgiving.
Late that day, I found myself trying to persuade my daughter to go to sleep. She was playing the “no really, I am asleep this time, just kidding- HEY WHERE ARE YOU GOING YOU CAN’T LEAVE ME I AM YOUR ANGEL” game for way too long. Eventually, I ended up laying on the bed right next to her crib until she drifted asleep.
Suddenly, I was hungry. Only one thing could cure my hunger- pie. Pumpkin pie. So I sent Eric a text:
J: NEED PIE
? What does that even mean? Does it mean pie?
Well my friends. Apparently in Eric’s mind means no pie. Later as I discussed this incident he said he was worried the pie would be “too noisy.” In case you cannot visualize a piece of rowdy pie… I have taken the opportunity to illustrate this mysterious and illusive slice.
You know what? I betcha he was eating the whole pie as he sent the . Figures.
After his “loud pie” comment- I asked him what he considered to be a quiet pie. According to Eric, apple pie is the quietest pie. So, dear reader…. I leave you with a question…. what do you consider to be the most silent of pies? My (Jo’s) vote is pumpkin. Eric votes apple. Comment below and we can settle this once and for all!
