My Weenie Dog Had Different Plans for Thanksgiving Desert
Happy Thanksgiving Let me start off by saying that life is good, GOD is great and we're fortunate to have an amazing Thanksgiving. Are the disclaimers out?
I could have dropped my weenie dog off at the exit and said have fun after finding this in the backseat. I'm chill because this little terror is bread do hunt and search sh*t out. I mean, there were two Costco pumpkin pies in the backseat. What was he supposed to do?
Well, did I mention both containers were sealed, buried under towels, and bags on top? I could.... My wife called and asked me to stop in for a quick trip to Walmart for an item or two. Okay, sweetie. No problem.
Ace! Be good I'll be right back. Fast forward 20 minutes...
Can I use some bad language real fast without being judged because this wasn't for me. This was for a family and it was late. That means Costco isn't open anymore. That brings me to "This mutha*%&#@!"
A breath. A moment. Just a breath.
I stopped off at Walmart to replace this travesty of a disaster and the pie's directions, "Cook for 70-80 minutes." I thought of some choice profanity with my inner self...took several breaths and reminded myself of how lucky I am. I feel like no matter how much positive talk you can exude from yourself it doesn't matter. That little weenie destroyed that beautiful Costco masterpiece baby.
I rolled up to Walmart, grabbed a tenth of the size of the pie, found a chocolate pie to add and called it a day. What can a brother do?
That's all I got. Happy Thanksgiving and oh, I was about 3 hours late thanks to my unorganized co-workers. Just add that to the Thanksgiving mayhem and here we go 2019. Let's get her done yo!
Gobble gobble beotches! Also, you better build a wall if you plan to leave a pup in the car Thanksgiving dinner. Don't do it
Sidenote: This is a true story and it's funny at the end of the day. Do you know what's not funny? Hunger and living homeless. I have fun and joke about these things but at the end of the day it's just a pie. I remember a time not that long ago when I was looking under my seat for a penny. It wasn't that long ago that I received a phone call from Les Schwab Tires who offered to replace my bald tires - no questions asked. I remember crying that day because I was so broke and truly believed GOD blessed me at that moment.
I have fun with these topics because it's real-life but I understand it's much worse than a pumpkin pie.
