No, Thanks


Uh-Oh. I Think I’ve Burned
the Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie

Too late to start a new one now. I thought I’d followed the directions of the recipe. Taste is what matters, right? Not really. It looks good in the picture but the real thing is considerably darker. What a fiasco. I should’ve known better but not even a Beatles song will help me now.
I’ll tell them it fell on the floor. No, gas power was shut off on my block. Maybe I’ll Trump them: ‘I never said I was bringing a pie.’ I could pick one up at the corner deli but what if they’re all gone? No, I’ll say I gave it away to a Soup Kitchen. That’ll make me look real good.

      Happy Thanksgiving to you all too, Dina, and wish me luck for my party to forgive me. If the pie really burned, that is. (If it’s not too chewy, we may be able to do something with it; maybe use as a filling of some kind…) I need to come up with a Plan B pronto, it’s almost time to head there. Cheers
