Strawberry pie effectively bribes little sister

When I was little and my sister Linda would want to use the car to see her friends, my Mom would say, "Ok, but you have to take your sister (meaning me) with you." So Linda would pick up her friend Polly, and we would all go to Eat'n Park. Back then, they still served you in the parking lot. Usually, there were guys Linda's age there too, so they would put me in the back seat and buy me a slice of strawberry pie to keep me quiet while they flirted with the guys. I was happy because I got my pie, Mom was happy because I was out for a while, and my sister was happy because she got to use the car! I still love the pie! (and that was 40+ years ago!) Happy 60th!
