When I was a kid, everything cherry red was the bomb: cherry lifesavers, cherry popsicles, cherry nibs, cherry jelly beans… As I “matured” I realized that these “cherry” candies were just fake cherry flavor, sugar and red food coloring and wasn’t cherry at all. I’m embittered by it. In all this time, I’ve never had a cherry pie. Never. I’m emphasizing this void because I’m gob smacked at how delicious cherry pie is. I took my first bite and immediately thought that THIS is the cherry of my childhood. Rick very gallantly offered to save me from doom by taking the crust off my hands, but I gave him my back. I felt emotionally protective of my pie. With my mouthful, I mumbled that this cherry pie is better than the caramel buns. I had two pieces at 11 points each, or let’s say ¼ of the pie. Then I watched American Idol and went to bed.
