A funny (and it will probably turn out to be long) story about the wording on the pie. I shot my sister a quick email telling her about the pie I'm making and what I should say on it (I like to "write" on my pies). I thought maybe something like, "Buy me," or "Eat me." She emailed me back with the suggestion of "Bebop-A-Reebop Rhubarb Pie." Of course! So I went to the kitchen and started working on it. Sadly, I realized, my cookie cutter letters were going to be too big for all those words. So I started cutting by hand. By the time I had written "Bebop-A-Reebop," I know I couldn't fit all the rest. So I went to get the phone and call my sis to see if she thought I should just do "pie" afterwards (Yes, a silly thing to question about - thank goodness for sisters so I can ask my silly stuff to.) When I'm in the office, I then see another email message from Erin that I hadn't seen yet:
i didn't quite read your email.12:54 PM
i thought you had to write something on a card.
i would not have given you this advice had i read it correctly
but if you want to try it, well, go for it!
maybe just bebop"
Haha, too late! I called Erin and told her what was going on and she thought I should keep it at "Bebop-A-Reebop." Another great idea, sis. :)
