Superstitions and pie

For my birthday, my dad got me an awesome, short cookbook called The Lost Art of Pie Making Made Easy. I love it because it’s full of the usual tips on how to make a flaky crust, etc… but it also is full of weird bits of trivia.

My favorite are the superstitions related to pie:

  • If a piece of pie is pointed toward you, you may expect a letter that day.
  • If a piece of pie points half-way around, you may expect a letter the next day.
  • If the point of another person’s pie is directed toward you and the person begins eating his piece at that point, you will get a letter.

Weird, huh? I like it.

  1. guess we’d have to change “letter” to email?

    Hrm. Increased exposure to pieces of pie leads to an increase in the volume of letters one receives.

    So if we all made pies, we could very quickly solve the United States Postal Service’s budget problems.
