That’s A Good Enough Excuse

Sometimes excuses are okay.

Exhibit A: an excuse to have pie.

Last night before I left the library I wrote on my Life After Bagels Facebook page:

Okay out with it – who’s having pie and what kind?

Unbeknownst to me someone who lives in my house and really likes pie decided to comment.

I don’t think you understand how much this man loves pie.  He has pumpkin pie season.  It starts October 1st which he calls “Pie-tober.”  If he had missed pi day and found out that I was hiding it from him there would have been trouble, much trouble.

When I left the library I headed to the grocery store thinking I was going to surprise him.  I didn’t know that he had commented on my page’s wall post.

But there was no pumpkin.  (PS I hate pumpkin pie myself, I was going to get myself something like apple or lemon meringue.)

The only compromise pie I could fine was a Mississippi mud pie.

It was very delicious.  Although it perplexed him.  He analyzed the crap out of it.  Creamy on top, pudding like in the middle.  Does he taste a hint of coffee flavour?

He’s looking forward to another piece tonight, as am I.

Although it’s not technically pie season anymore, pi day is a good enough excuse to have pie don’t ya think ;)

Did you eat pie yesterday?  What kind?  Did you know it was pi day?  How many figures of pi can you recite?

  1. I don’t like pumpkin either. The one you got sounds yummy. I LOVE apple pie. Love, love, love it.

  2. I totally forgot it was pi day! :( I hate missing out on excuses to eat things.

    Also, I can recite three figures of pi…3.14. Go me.

    I’m not really a pie person, but my husband makes from-scratch crusts and the most amazing key lime filling. He also has a tart lemon that is to DIE for.

  5. I can’t believe I missed Pi Day! Sounds like such a cool holiday!
    I used to be a real math geek in high school and college and knew the first ten or so figures of pi. That came in handy for all the calculations we had to do. My college math prof even had a shirt with the first 200 figures on the back. He was awesome!

    I love pumpkin pie You don’t need to have pi. day. One our two pieces a month won’t hurt with all your exercise.

    That’s some fancy-shmancy looking pie. I must admit I missed out on this time honoured tradition, and I shall have to make up for it this weekend.
    Maybe a green pie to combine both St. Patty’s Day and Pi Day?
