A night to remember … my first pie supper


The crowd cheered. I walked away with the girl and the pie. I dug into her pie, put a big bite into my mouth … and almost gagged. 

It was the worst thing I had ever tasted.

I faked a choking spasm, managing to knock the wretched concoction off the table.

She cried and ran off while her daddy glared at me. I rode home with a neighbor couple who witnessed the disaster. They tried not to laugh in front of me.

Three days later, she ditched me for a senior with a car.

As I recall, it was about the same time I finally got that awful taste out of my mouth.
