Remnants of the Blueberry and Coconut Pies
Today is Pi Day. Being a total geek engineer, working in an office with a bunch of other engineers, I decided that we needed to celebrate with a Pi Pie Bake-Off. Eight folks made pies, myself included. Then we let the always starving masses sample pies and vote for their favorites. My pies? I actually brought two pies – a coconut cream and a blueberry – and won first and second place. However, because it would be sort of weird to win the Pi Pie Bake-Off that I organized, I disqualified myself and handed out prizes to a Blackberry Pie, a Lemon Chess Pie and a Chocolate Creme Pie.

Jumping on the Bandwagon here…
It’s Weigh In Day. Which of course means Olivia starts in the moment I woke up this morning.
Oooooh! You’re going to get it! You have to step on that scale today!
Yes, Olivia, I know. And by the way, we’re going to walk to the meeting.
WALK? Are you nuts? It’s cold! Really, really cold!
Not cold enough to stop us, Olivia. Besides, the sun is shining! Isn’t it grand?
Yeahbut, last week you didn’t get any serious exercise except for Monday because of the ice and snow. And you ‘indulged’ in a lot of treats. Like Italian Wedding Soup. And tortilla chips. And beer!
I know, Olivia. That’s why today we’re facing the music, embracing our defeat. We’re stepping on that scale and moving on.
As we’re waiting in line…
Just tell the nice lady we don’t want to weigh in today. Just to listen to Terri, share with everyone else and discuss the topic.
No, Olivia. I’m taking off my shoes right now.
[She Steps on the Scale.]
Zero. No loss, no gain.
We’ll take it.
Greetings, Chickies, and Happy New Year to You!
