Actual conversation between my parents

MOM: "Yesterday was pie weather."
DAD: "But you said yesterday that it was chicken weather."
MOM: "Well, it was. For me. I don't usually think about pie. I'm not in a pie mindset. For people who aren't me it was pie weather."

Your parents sound fun. And, oddly enough, just like mine.

It would be tough to write something that clever and honest in a play or novel ... brilliant!

Marriage is all about compromise. It's chicken pie weather.

I agree with Afe about the chicken pie. That's where I thought the conversation was headed, anyway...

So what exactly do your parents like to put IN their pie? Some hallucinogen, is my guess!

Somehow I always expected pie weather to be much more pleasant than a freezing cold and misty day. What kind of pie was your mom referring to, Chris? Like one of those frozen ones?

It was French Silk pie (a chocolate pie), that my wife and I had bought on our way home from watching a pro-wrestling pay-per-view at a friend's house.
