Pie Night

I first celebrated Pie Night in 2004.

It was glorious.

“That is lovely,” you may be saying to yourself, “but what is Pie Night?”

The answer to that question is fairly simple, as the name of the event, Pie Night, is kind of self-explanatory. Pie Night is a night on which many pies are purchased and then eaten. It was born out of indecisiveness and a craving for pie. Unable to choose between apple, pumpkin, lemon, cherry or any of the other flavours that Sobey’s had displayed in their baked goods section, I just bought one of each.

When I approached the register to make my purchase, the checkout boy looked at me inquisitively. “Having a party?” he asked.

“No,” I replied, “these pies are just for me.” But this was only true in part. The pies were largely for me, but I fully intended to return to my apartment, wake up my roommates (it was 3 a.m.) and force them to eat pie with me. Eating eight pies by yourself at 3 a.m. is sad and may indicate that you are suffering from emotional issues. Eating eight pies with your college roommates at 3 a.m., however, is making the kind of memories that will last a lifetime.

The downfall of Pie Night is that there is always pie left over the next day. While living in residence at university, this problem was easily solved by leaving leftover pie in the kitchens of the unfortunate souls on our floor who happened to leave their apartments unlocked at night.

I will tell you a secret, Interweb: I have a dream of entering a pie eating contest. I do not think that I would be able to eat more than one pie, but I feel like a pie eating contest is the only time when it is socially acceptable for me to stick my face into a pie, and this appeals to me.
