UPDATE:  After sentencing of Defendant #1, I went to O’Charleys for lunch. I ordered my entree.

free pie wednesday

PIE shout-out #2

Soon, the manager came to my table, “Remember, today is free PIE Wednesday!! Don’t forget to order your favorite slice of pie for dessert!!” 

So chirpy and happy, I wanted to ask her “Don’t you know I just had to talk about my life since August 8, 2011? That I had to face down pure evil just a little while ago??”

Instead, I smiled and looked at the choices. Apple pie! Certainly not chocolate; never the greatest fan of pie; it nevertheless was PART 2 of the “pie” prophesy.


“Does pie mean anything to you? A favorite dessert? Something you ate recently?”

“No, not really.”

“I keep seeing the word pie. It may not mean anything now, but it may make sense later. Write it down.”


I hung up the phone and went into my office. Sitting on top of my laptop was one sheet of paper: a coupon for a free dessert with the purchase of an adult entree. The photo of a dessert possibility: paradise pie!


And so I know, it was my shout-out that he is with me always.

This one’s for you, baby boy! Salud!!
