If you know someone who would really like to throw a pie at you, you should first tell them......
1. What your favorite kind of pie is
2. You wouldn't want to have your favorite pie thrown at you without a wonderful, beautiful, delightful cherry on top.
3. Be sure and get a fork/spoon before they hit you.
4. Don't let them know that instead of hurting you by throwing that pie that they are really treating you to your favorite piece of pie.
Here is the last step. Follow closely!
5. BE SURE AND EAT your pie. After all, you are getting exactly what you deserve.
