are so cute!
Kevin is the chairman of the County Office Committee at the local FSA office (Farm Service Agency). It was his turn to bring treats to the monthly meeting. I made a Wonderful Upside Down Rhubarb Pie**, which Kevin said brought rave reviews from the spoiled (the last guy’s wife made a blueberry dessert and a chocolate pie) old men on the committee. He brought home the pie pan, but, we discovered this morning, forgot the pie cutter.
This afternoon we get the following message, “Hi, Kevin and Jessica, this is Jessica down at the FSA office. I was just calling to tell you we have your pie cutter. I washed it, but forgot to put it back with the pie pan. So don’t worry Jessica, WE HAVE THE PIE CUTTER. If you have time to stop out and pick it up, that’s great, otherwise, we’ll have it for you at the next COC meeting. We’ll have your pie cutter here.”
I just thought how she phrased her message, and that she thought to call and assuage my ‘worry’ was so sweet and cute.
