The peach cobbler sure looked good, and it was tasty. But it wasn't the most successful dessert on the table.

    Spite, eh? Well, it sounds like you got your just dessert, ordering that out-of-season peach cobbler. *wink*
    Remind me never to visit that pecan pie place you all went to in Austin. I don’t want little bits of me dying all over the country every time I’m not able to resist the siren call of pecan pie on the dessert menu. I mean, what a cruel fate that Austin pie place has set you two up for!
    Thanks for another entertaining review. It kept my mind off the treadmilling, so for that, I give this podcast a 10.
