Do you have a dispute or disagreement with someone you love? Celebrate Pi Day with this “piece offering” and all will be forgiven!
I have a confession to make. I’ve been selfish and need to apologize to my husband (and I’m guessing that I’m not the only wife that needs to do this).
It all started years ago, when we got married and moved into our first house. His bachelor furniture just didn’t fit with our decor and had to go. He tried to plead his case by telling me it was expensive but no matter how expensive it was, black metal and glass furniture just wasn’t my style (translation: I thought it was ugly). He talked me into letting him keep the bookcase and begrudgingly gave the rest of it away.
Slowly over the years, most of the things from his single days are long gone, including that bookcase. I hadn’t given it much thought until the other day, when I saw some of his old music memorabilia hidden away in the corner of our garage. Don’t get me wrong, the framed gold albums from his days in the music business are pretty cool, they just don’t go with our coastal decor. If we had a rock-n-roll theme, they’d be perfect…but that’s probably not going to happen anytime soon.
I had tucked them away in the corner so I knew he wouldn’t see them and want to hang them in the house. However, I started to feel a little guilty about it. Then I felt even worse as I remembered all the things I’d talked him into getting rid of over the years. Surely there had to be a way to make it up to him…
Luckily there is! Today is Pi Day and there’s no better way to make a “piece offering” than with a piece of pie, right? I went straight for the Edwards Desserts, not just because they’re so delicious but because there’s also zero work involved. All you have to do is thaw the pie and it’s ready to eat! It seriously doesn’t get any easier than that.
There are so many awesome flavors to choose from that the only hard part is deciding which Edwards pie to bring home. They all looked so good, and it was a close race between the Turtle Pie, Cookies And Creme Pie and the Hershey’s Chocolate Creme Pie. I tried to be selfless and picked the one I thought my hubby would like best…the Turtle Pie. Okay, maybe it wasn’t completely selfless because that was the one I wanted too.
He accepted my piece offering and let me know that he didn’t hold a grudge. After all, when we looked around, we realized that most of my old stuff was gone too. I guess that’s just what happens after you’ve been married 16 years. It still gave us a good reason to sit around and eat Edwards Turtle Pie! Hmm, I may just have to start making a “piece offering” every Pi day…or even every Friday. I could get used to this.
Surely I’m not the only wife who’s been guilty of this, right? What have you talked your husband into getting rid of? Have you secretly hidden anything in the hopes he’d forget about it? You might need to pick up a piece offering for Pi Day, too.
