    One Christmas Day, had to have been mid to late nineties because I was still living in my Laurel Avenue guest house.

    Along with the other food, I had purchased a pecan pie.

    After I served up the feast and we had gorged ourselves, I suddenly remembered the pecan pie. Well, Ellen always told me she really didn’t like sweets, and since I do, I had sampled the pie all week before Christmas. I did manage to save a tiny sliver, maybe a quarter inch across, but, I don’t think there was even that much left.

    As she approached the refrigerator, which in that house, was in the only closet with the microwave on top (there was no kitchen, just a closet and bathroom), as she walked towards the closet, I said; “now Ellen, you need to understand I did already eat just a tiny smidgen of the pie”.

    So, keep in mind she was expecting a pie with a tiny piece missing. When she opened the refrigerator door and saw that there were just “fumes” left of the pie, she laughed so hard, she almost peed herself; clearly all the neighbors up and down the street heard her laughing.

    Ellen used to say, “You are the only person I know who can take a s$@t and wash your dishes in the same room”. Since there was no kitchen in the guest house, we washed dishes in the bathroom sink.
