The other day, my companion and I had a experience that I think is hilarious. It relates to pie. Elder Barnett wanted to buy a pumpkin pie for thanksgiving. I suggested we wait until after thanksgiving because someone may give us a pumpkin pie, and we could never eat TWO pies. He agreed. Unfortunately, we didn't get a pumpkin pie. Instead, we were given two apple pies and a cherry pie. Determined to get a pumpkin pie, Elder Barnett grabbed one, as soon as we entered the grocery store the following Monday. It wasn't until we got home that he realized that he had grabbed a sweet potato pie, instead of a pumpkin pie. Defeated, he gave up on pie and simply ate pumpkin bread instead. He still topped it with whipped cream though.
Now we have a whole lot of pie, which brings me back to the point I made before: Mmmmmmmm, boy. Pie heaven!
(P.S. As a missionary, I don't feel comfortable posting this without adding the disclaimer that there is no scriptural evidence that there is such a thing as pie heaven, only in a symbolic sense in our fridge :)
