Me: Hey! Brain! Do we have anything useful to say today?
Brain: Let me check. Hmmm… yeah, nope, we got nothing.
Me: Awesome! Time for pie!
And there you have it.
That’d better be apple pie!
The question remains: What kind of pie?
Yes! What type of pie? Your army of followers needs to know!
The Internet says both you and your brain are wrong – or course that is the default answer to any question.
Promoting the consumption of pie is useful. Very useful.
“Time for pie” is very useful. Not only does it help set my own agenda for today, it may also be the name of my next band! Have a great weekend!
Hmmmm…Pie today, tomorrow, and Sunday. Pie with handmade crust and with Graham cracker crust. Pizza pie. Boston cream pie.
Takes one’s mind off current foolishness most admirably.
Pie may very well be real brain pal.
Savoury pie for dinner, sweet pie for dessert?
Pie, there is no pie.
For while all pies are good, some are exceptional.
I’m going with coffee + Ben & Jerry. Not your thing – I know, but it’s mine.
Schadenfreude Pie, of course. You can have some of what I baked Wednesday (I live alone, so it’s hard to get it eaten up).
Just to be contrary, there is cheesecake.
Why is the pie always gone?
In other ukulele news…
I call those weekdays
Pie? Heaven forbid. My mind has been going on, for several hours & no explicable reason, about Full English Cooked Breakfast. I haven’t actually consumed anything, but feel as though I’ve gained several pounds.
…Brain: sounds like the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
My brain and I had a similar discussion, but we opted for chocolate. Obviously this means you and I should be chowing down on some Schadenfreude Pie together. Or our brains should.
I feel like this everyday..
As long as the pie isn’t I, or sugar free for that matter, then you’re good to go.
Rewarding your brain for a lack of profundity could be the beginning of a vicious downward spiral.
Better watch out, John. Here, give me the pie.
Besides a top 5 list of pie flavors and top 3 list of crust styles,
who is the best pie cook in the house?
Do you go to the store?
Next new book title: Pie’s that are out of this World
From the Scalzi family’s kitchen.
My brain tells me that, if you turned on your BrainPal, it would suggest pineapple pizza. And how to escape the alien army landing on your lawn right now! (Well, it’s a BIG alien army that needs a big place to land, and your lawn is big.)
I’ve looked – I’ve checked twice – I have no pie! :-(
