I've lived outside of Texas for over half of my life. I miss several things about Texas and the South in general, but none more than my beloved sweet potato pie. Not pumpkin...SWEET...POTATO. 🏾
Well, my #granny made me one tonight. Being the impatient #Aries I am, I snuck into the kitchen to grab a piece before it cooled off. Well, Satan himself brought upon my little fingers the scorching heat of hell and caused me not only to pee a little on myself but to drop the pie that my 81 year old granny's arthritic little hands had JUST made for me.
As I burned the black off my fingers trying to hurry up and clean scorching-hot cursed sweet potato filling off the floor before my less than 5ft tall (but still deadly) grandma could notice, I suddenly was 8 years old again. As I furiously wiped and wiped and WIPED, all I could hear in my head was "Boy! Now go on outside and find me somethin' to whoop yo @ss with." Yes, at 43 years old, the THOUGHT of a butt whoopin had me crying like my 1 yr old daughter and thinking about padding my shorts with toilet paper to soften the blow. *
Screw...THAT!!! I quickly snapped back to 2019, powered through those 3rd degree sweet potato burns and somehow even grabbed a mop to finish up.
Knowing I'd get caught (my granny is old, not stupid), I eventually broke down, walked my melted fingers into her room and confessed. Know what she did? Know what she did???........She started laughing so hard she had to go to the bathroom cuz she nearly peed herself.
Just proves stupidity doesn't necessarily leave you as an adult...but thank God the butt whoopins do. 🙂 - 33 minutes ago
