Birthdays are special – and everyone deserves something special on their birthday. That’s why this text conversation caught me off guard, but didn’t deter me from trying to appease my brother-in-law on his birthday. Knowing he preferred pie to cake I thought it would be a nice gesture to offer an alternative.
Me: Since you’re more of a pie-guy…what kind of pie would you eat if had a choice? Just wondering :)
Travis: I like fruity pies but I dislike peach and apple pies.
Me: Good to know. How do you feel about pumpkin pies?
Travis: I like pumpkin, lemon meringue, key lime, banana creme.
Me: Also good to know.
Travis: In one bite.
Me: Awesome. Dually noted.
Travis: Consider yourself challenged.
Next grab a key lime pie with a mountainous pile of stiffened whipped cream,
There you have it – many manly tiny pies – all in one delicious bite – or so I was told. It was a great, albeit silly way to celebrate someone I love. And making someone feeling special is always great.
So go – make something delicious!
