Terrorist Pie

I was watching cupcake wars on the food network channel. I don’t usually do this. It was lunch time and we were just sitting back and having some fun time. OH my them cupcakes looked mighty yummy. I have been so good and have been watching my diet. “Cookie, cakes and pies” are not allowed in this house very often.

Except for today. We even went to a different “good bakery” at Pavilions. Found a custard blueberry pie. About an hour ago I sat down with some dandelion tea with honey and a piece of pie. I took two bites. How delicate it was. Mostly custard and whip cream with blueberries on top. I was thinking,

“The blueberries are so perfectly sweet and ripe.”

Then something tears at my tongue. I thought maybe it was a little piece of the blueberry stem that sometimes is hard to clean from the berry. I tangled my tongue around it and pulled it out. I almost swallowed a piece of very sharp plastic. The piece of hard plastic was about 2 by 4 inches with a jagged edge formed as a zig-zag. It was in extreme contrast to the delicious soft creamy pie.

I was shocked and so glad that one of my kids didn’t have a piece before I did. If they or I had swallowed this, it would have done some real damage. Very scary thought.

I went back to Pavilions and filled out a “customer report of incident.” I got a refund and now have lost my desire for “cookie, cakes and pies!”

All I can taste is the sharp plastic and my sore tongue… yuck. Glad my tongue works so well. I am so glad that I am here instead of in the hospital. Shit that was a terrorist pie attack…be careful beware…!!

Welcome to Hudley Flipside’s “The Seminary Of Praying Mantis Publishing.” Praying mantis shows me her story of life, death, and rebirth. For me she is an image or symbol of the divine in all things. I watch the praying mantis in my garden and have taken her image as my logo. She is an amazing little creature, and I relate to her connection to nature. We are both wild and part of this strange world. She is a part of my mythology as I am part of hers.
