Rex --1 / Mother-in-Law -- 0

Well, since my brainy idea of a blogger's poll hasn't taken off, I guess that I will blog about a more popular subject: my mother-in-law. Maybe I will have to start giving a weekly mother-in-law update. Anyway, there has been an exciting new development in the apple pie saga (for those of you who don't know what I am talking about, read my earlier post on the subject). Last night, I finally got some forbidden apple pie. How? I out-and-out stole it! Thats right, while my mother-in-law was sitting in her living room holding Devin, I snuck into the kitchen and helped myself. It was really too easy. Boy, you should have heard the mutterings and threatenings. I was actually accused of not having a conscience (so far, my conscience hasn't bothered me at all). I must admit that the pie was pretty good. After the whole ordeal was over, she offered to bake me a whole apple pie for myself, if I would promise to never give her another wet willy. The problem is, if I give in this time, I have no guarantee that she won't turn right around and threaten me with something else. Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if she really doesn't want me to give in because she likes all the publicity that she gets from my blog. Also, circumstances have been smiling on me. I actually got apple pie three different times from three different sources last week. I have also received a lot of moral support including offers of apple pie from Columbia, and a new unlikely alibi, my father-in-law. So, I guess I'll have to think about it a while longer.
