No one in my family eats the cherry pie. Why? It is beautiful there on the counter in its white ceramic pie pan, all crimson and purple encased in a glistening brown crust. People used to stand in line for a piece of the pie, any flavor, any color, even mock apple pie. Sometimes lines for coffee and donuts stretched around the block. Then people stood in line for cheese, encased in white plastic with the word ‘CHEESE’ stenciled in black ink. The cheese was a kind of yellow unnatural for food, manufactured, mass produced the way cars have been since What do folks stand in line for these days? WIC Debit cards Lottery tickets Medical care Security checkpoints Jobs, always the jobs. I don’t need to stand in those kinds of lines -hit the birth lottery, my parents did it so I don’t have to. My kids will only stand in express lines. Sometimes I get in a line just to find out what is going on; though nobody can say why the cherry pie is so unpopular. http://youtu.be/sVx_BhXgwtY

thanks ann…i really don’t understand why the cherry pie is not popular in my household…i can understand choosing the curried lentil pie first, but cherry pie for dessert seems like a no-brainer to me…i am a geek for cherries.
