Call me Bacon

The obituaries in today's Journal include one which has an amazing nickname that I feel obligated to laud: Lenora Lee Alston, aka Pie.

Pie, y'all.


That is probably the best food nickname ever. I've known a Bean. I've been neighbor to a Joe*. I've gone to school with a Sugar. But Pie puts all those to shame. Pie is warm and sweet and sometimes flaky (but only in the best way) and always decadent.

Kudos to someone for bestowing that gem on the late Mrs. Alston.

*I know this is a legitimate nickname for Joseph, but the man's real name was Warren. Joe as in "a cuppa".
