Sweet and Savory Dessert





"Could I please have a big slice of key lime pie without whipped cream?"

I skewed my nose, "It would be so tangy without it. How about some vanilla ice-cream on the side, instead?"

"No!" Natalie was loud and clear.

I could still not digest the fact, and snickered at her, "I hope you're aware that it's a dessert, not an entree."

"Mom, why can't we consider a dessert to be sweet and savory, just like how Life offers us. Happy and not so happy moments in our lives." my 18-year-old inquired in a severe tone, leaving me speechless.



==============

In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that includes a key lime pie. How can you use it in a story? Is it about the pie? Or about characters making, eating, or otherwise engaging with one? Go where the prompt leads!

Yes, we can learn from our children!

Odd, but I've never had key lime pie. :)

Surprising when they exert their preferences and realize they have grown up. I love key lime pie, but with the whipped cream!
