P to the umpkin

i have this enormous craving for pumpkin pie. no joke. i was grocery shopping tonight...only had to get 2 things. i left with two bags full! anyway, i was totally smacked in the face every aisle my cart turned down with thanksgiving. i could't help it! this craving for pumpkin pie just engulfed me. i was over in the bakery section and i saw the pp on sale! but i didn't want, and certainly didn't need an entire pp! i looked for half pies, but they only came in the fruit kind. that would just not do. i wanted pumpkin! so i thought to myself, i have my "special" ice cream in the freezer right now, and how perfect would that go with a nice, big piece of pp? hhhmmm...but they only came in full pie form! too much for me. i just wanted a mere slice. i thought, maybe i should just stop at baker's square. no- too much of a hassle for a dumb piece of pie. but it's thanksgiving week, and i really want it now! so that's when it came to me. this glorious realization.

i am 25 years old. i buy all my own groceries. i can buy an entire pie if i so choose to buy an entire pie! i have a roommate and friend, she'll of course revel in it with me! i have the freedom to buy however many the heck pieces of pie i want! glorious!

i bought the whole pie.

i got home, opened the box, and cut out a bite for myself BEFORE dinner.

yeah. i bought an entire pumpkin pie.

Shoot, save a piece for me, because pie is best when it's shared with friends!!

what a great realization...and before dinner no less- Jane should be appalled!

Good for you, Abby! Savor the season and the freedom of being a grownup!

i am absolutely thrilled for you. more so, however, for the incredibly empowering realization you experienced. and less for the fact that you have an entire pumpkin pie sitting in the kitchen...simply because...well, i don't really like pumpkin pie. however, i still say you go girl.

hence the reason you haven't touched the thing. it's all making sense now...

I disagree with everyone else. I don't think you should've bought that pie. You should've baked one yourself. There's so much more satisfaction in eating a slice of your own creation! Believe me! (see my blog) Ab - next year . . . a pie of your own. :-)
