My mom: Does Primo like pumpkin pie?
Mom: Does he like apple pie?
Mom: Does he like blueberry pie?
Mom: Does he like cranberry sauce?
Me: No. If it ends in “erry” or has that “orange” flavor, he does not like it.
My mom is a fabulous hostess and she is concerned with her guests’ comfort. When I took a former boyfriend, John, who is a vegetarian, to my mom’s, she asked, “I made a pie that has lard in the crust. Will John be able to eat it?” That is how my mom is. She wants to be a gracious hostess and make her guests feel welcome in her home. Don’t all moms?
Yeah, you don’t have to answer that. We know.
