All 9 Kinds

"It was a simple picnic lunch - there was nothing but pie. But there were all nine of Harold's favorite pies."

I hear that line a lot, either on the Harold and the Purple Crayon DVD (permanently installed in the car DVD player as it is particularly well-suited for detering tantrums from the 2.5 yr olds among us) or in the book, a regular read.

This morning, though, it really hit me. 9 kinds of pies? Seriously? How can you have NINE favorite kinds of pies?

Here are mine:

  1. Strawberry rhubarb
  2. Apple
  3. Cherry
  4. Chocolate mousse
  5. Does cheesecake count as pie?
  6. What about chocolate cake?
  7. Because seriously, I'm out of pies.
  8. 9 kinds of pie, my ass.
  9. He's totally counting cheesecake.
