What? I didn't tell you guys about the pie?
Sorry about that.
The Story With Pie
We had traveled seven sixtwoteen billion miles to go to Jon's cousin's wedding. Meaning, we drove. In our car. With Katie and Ellie. By the time we got there, my already limited brain functionality was limited even more. Like, whooooeeeoooo..... Yeah. Like that. Anyway, there was a wedding, there was sleeping in a hotel room with Ellie (the Up Every Two Hours Baby), Katie (the Sleep Moaner Groaner Thrasher) and Jon (the What? I'm Snoring? Again? Guy). There was hanging out at Jon's Grandmother's farm, where, yes, there was pie.
In case you didn't catch all that, let me sum up for you-There I am, a sleep-deprived-non-computer-game-playing-non-math-interested-hadn't-even-heard-of-The-Hobbit-until-I-was-23-and-thought-Cher-played-that-wizard-with-the-white-hair-in-The-Lord-of-the-Rings-movies-vegetarian, sitting in a chair with a baby on my lap and I'm ready for my dessert. Pie. I saw it come in. I want some now. However, my go to dessert guy is talking. Let me sound clip this for you:
Jon: The quantitative powers of the integers, blah, blah, blah
Me: (telepathically) Pie.
Jon's Cool Family Member: MakerBot, blah, blah, blah
Me:(still telepathically) Pie!
Jon: Cool shirt.
Jon's Other Cool Family Member: It's a subway map of The Shire, blah, blabbady, blah
Me: (optimistically and telepathically) Pie! :)
Jon's Other Other Cool Family Member: Golf, blah, blah, blah
Me: (loosing faith in telepathy) 3.14159256? pie....
Jon's Other Other Other Cool Family Member: Do you want to play the Wii? Blah, blee, bleebity, blee
Me: (telepathically AND kinetically with my elbow) PIE!!! NOW!!! BRING ME PIE!!!
End sound clip.
The moral of the story? If you see me sitting in the middle of a discussion focusing on Hobbits, MakerBots, golf, math and computer games, I am not interested. I just want pie.
*ie World Wide Web, which, back in the late 90's I kept calling it WWF in my head, because it just sounded more righter, then there was the whole World Wrestling Federation vs. World Wildlife Fund smack down and I eventually had to stop because Hulk Hogan and his friends lost and WWE just didn't sound cool. Or righter.
