Imaginary pie


My boss brought quiche in today.  (Besides being a loan officer, he’s a restaurateur – which really works to my benefit considering I like to eat.)

My piece didn’t stand a chance – I heated it up and poured my small ramekin of hot sauce on the side of my paper plate and devoured.

A while later, after he’d just eaten his, I went into his office and sat at his desk to discuss a file with him.

Now, I KNEW he had eaten quiche.  But, in the split second that I caught a glimpse of his empty paper plate, stained orange from the sauce – topped with his crumpled napkin, my mind saw something completely different.


Me:   Want to hear how my mind works?

Him: (Audible eye roll)

Me: I KNEW you had quiche – but when I glanced at your plate, what I saw was remnants of pumpkin pie with a mound of whipped cream

Him: You need help

Me: No, I have an imagination

Him: No, you really need help


I kept smiling – but inside, I was frowning and I actually allowed myself to wonder for a moment if perhaps I really am a little teeny-tiny bit crazy.  (I even asked my best friend – who assured me via email I’m not.  Then again, birds of a feather …)

I left clutching the file to my chest and wanting to smuggle his plate out to serve as ‘Exhibit A’. 

I would then have been able to show it to other people in the building.  I needed confirmation that it wasn’t just me.  After all, it was only this week no one could see my snowman’s arm!

Instead of giving more people reason to believe I need help of the mental kind, I have reenacted his plate using mine. (Which isn’t weird at all … okay, it’s totally weird, but it was the lesser of two weirds.)

You can’t tell me this doesn’t look like pumpkin and whipped cream!  No?  Squint.


Thank FULL!

I can barely keep my eyes open, let alone string words together in a blog worthy manner – so I’ll share a little photo diary of today.

Over the river (literally) and past the sheep, to grandmothers house we went.

We’re here! My moms house.  That was a long 20 minute drive 😉

Didn’t expect this … was just going for a shot of her front yard tree.  Lovely isn’t it?

Not sure why I’m at the table, the food wasn’t ready. LOL!

NOW it’s ready!

My plate 🙂

My attempt at a ‘serious’ ‘nice’ photo with Nic.  *sigh*

We’re just never going to have a serious mother/son photo are we?

Nic can be serious about eating dessert though

And we’ll end with my Dessert.  Mince and pumpkin pie! 🙂

Hope everyone had a wonderful day.  I am so very thankful for all of my blessings!  Thank you for being one of them.
