I Like Pie!

She's my cherry pie,
Cool drink of water,
Such a sweet surprise.
Tastes so good make a grown man cry,
Sweet cherry pie!

Warrant, Cherry Pie

So, I'm working from home this week, and it's been an absolute zoo. Work is going crazy, and I had a paper due last night. I'd been working on it since Saturday, and by 1:00pm yesterday afternoon, I had exactly one paragraph written, and that one had been scrapped three times already. Needless to say, I was stressed to the breaking point. Finally got it turned in, all 5 pages with 7 minutes to spare. Talk about cutting it close! It's probably not my best work, but I was at least able to cover my main points and reach a point of satisfaction with it before time ran out.

Today, work is more of the same, insanity from the start. Mrs. Gnu, using her superpowers of intuition, (namely, listening to me swear like a sailor all morning) figured I could use a pick-me-up.

She came in to the office around lunchtime and had in her hands, a delicious, piping hot, homemade cherry pie. With a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.

God, I love that woman!

Now, if only I could get her to dress up and do a remake of the video...

Since I didn't get any of the pizza from the last post I'll go ahead and assume that no pie will be forthcoming. Food hog!

1 And, lo, the people of the household did eat of the delicious cherry pie. And it was good. 2 And the people rejoiced, lifting their hands to the heavens like they just don't care.
