Ginger: Ruby…what are you doing?
Ruby: I’m making dinner.
Ruby: Yes, Ginger. With vegetables.
Ruby: Because vegetables are part of a healthy dinner.
Ginger: Why do you think I would eat a healthy vegetable-filled dinner?
Ruby: Because they’re…pies?
Ginger: You have told me for years that pie is not a healthy dinner!
Ruby: Fruit pies are not healthy dinners by themselves. These pies – shepherd’s pies – are healthy dinners by themselves. Mostly.
Ginger: Pies should taste like good things like Happiness, Summer, Fireflies in the Backyard, Smiles…
Ruby: Hold up. Did you just say pies should taste like Firefly?
Ginger: No. Wow, you have a one-track mind, you know that? I mean, I can’t go one full conversation without you bringing up that wonderful TV show. I…wait…
Ginger: It’s usually me who brings up Firefly, right?
Ruby: Yes. Yes, it is.
Ginger: Wow, you hang out with me way too much.
Ginger: For the record, I said pies should taste like Fireflies in the Backyard. An image from my youth in which I chased and caught fireflies and put them into Mason jars that had holes poked into the lids so that they could breathe.
Ruby: When would you do this?
Ginger: In summertime, just as the sun goes down usually. Then we would play a game called Ghosts In The Graveyard. It was like Hide and Seek, but in darkness.
Ruby: So, to summarize, pies should taste like your favorite summertime evening activity?
Ginger: Yes. Basically.
Ruby: So, pies should taste like…Twilight.
Ginger: …you take that back.
