Definitely Not Pie


“Is that where it goes in or is that where it comes out?”

Shirley thought it was obvious, but it was true one should not assume, let alone when something appeared to be mundane but could be the exact opposite. She took a step forward and leaned closer.

“Step back, you fool!” Daniella pulled her neighbor away from the bin that had just manifested onto their shared driveway. She should have known Shirley would be impulsive. The woman once cut into her own potentially-prize-winning rhubarb pie before the contest was even over. “Are you trying to get abducted?”

  1. Na’ama Y’karah,

    My husband’s grandmother used to make a rhubarb cobbler that was amazing. Just the right amount of sweet and tart. 😉 Now that Shirley, I’d say she’s treading on a thin driveway.
