This week’s pie went to my dentist. Yes, you heard that right. I had a check-up on Wednesday, and I gave a pie to my dentist.
Actually, he’s a good family friend. I’ve known him since I was real small. My brothers and I, and his four kids all grew up playing together. I have some great memories of family ski trips together, and picnics, and big group camping trips. He also makes sure my teeth are healthy, which they very much are, I’m happy to report. So, I brought him a pie – and I think he was excited about it!
