Happy Pi(e) Day!

Sure, I know that today is meant celebrate pi as in π (the marvelous mathematical constant) and not pie (as in the delicious dessert). But considering pi helps you measure the circumference of a circle, and pie looks like a circle, perhaps the two can be combined in some meaningful way. In fact, you might be able to figure out how much a group of us ate one fateful day two years ago. That's when Ed, Carey, and Robyn were in Chicago, and together we ate a slice of every single pie at Hoosier Mama Pie Company. I worried we wouldn't make it out of the shop alive. But we absolutely destroyed what was placed in front of us. What a glorious day.

Not that I'm suggesting you should do the same, at least by yourself, but this should serve as a reminder of how great pie can be, especially the kinds coming out of the Hoosier Mama's kitchen. Enjoy the day.
