Word of the Day:
deserving praise, reward, esteem, etc.; praiseworthy: to receive a gift for meritorious service.
Alright. Here goes:
“Dude.” I looked at him solemnly. “This pie.”
“I know,” Andrew said, grinning.
“No,” I said. “You don’t. This pie. This pie is unbelievable. This pie is meritorious.”
“Meritorious. If I had a blue ribbon right now, it would be yours.”
“So…I should open that bakery?” he asked.
“I don’t care if you open the bakery or not,” I said. “But you need to give me this pie right now. All of it.”
“The whole thing?” he laughed.
“I need all the pie, Andrew. I need all of it; I need it now.”
He laughed in that wonderful way of his—a full body laugh, his head thrown back, his eyes crinkled.
I grabbed the pie and bolted, ignoring his shouts behind me to come back.
The pie was mine.
What? I’m hungry, okay?
