Two halves

A bigger half
is mathematician’s
impossibility.

But such a thing
when cutting pie
ever a probability.

Today, January 23rd, is National Pie Day! I’m sure the Pie Council won’t have a problem with prolonging the celebrations into Poetry Friday.

The little poem (above) was one of my November poem-a-day efforts. Given my disability in the pie-cutting department, I’m thinking probably the best way to divvy up the pie, at least at my house, is to make individual pies for each person!

And here to help with your next pie party are some pie-making tips from the aforementioned Pie Council.

  1. Love your poem…and your pie, Violet. When my girls share anything that requires cutting it in half, I let one cut, then the other one chooses which piece she wants. The cutter tends to make the pieces as equal as possible. =)
