An Actual Conversation: The Bagel Tree

Pumpkin Pie picked a seed off his bagel this morning and…

Pumpkin Pie: Can I plant this seed from my bagel outside and grow a bagel tree?There it is, the Bagel Tree.  Hardy up to zone 6.

Me: Ummm…  Well… (Torn between telling him the truth and ruining a perfectly funny conversation)  Sure!

Some time goes by and he forgets while he eats, morning routine continues…

Pumpkin Pie: Mom!  I almost forgot to plant my bagel seed!

Me: Honey, I hate to be the one to break this to you, but Bagels don’t grow on trees.

Pumpkin Pie: Then where do they grow?

Me: Well… you make them.  In the oven, you know, like pumpkin bread.  You mix up the dough and bake them in the oven.

Pumpkin Pie (laughing, obviously thinking I am full of it):  They grow in THE OVEN?!

Me: Well, they don’t really grow, they sorta get bigger in the heat after you put them in the oven.

Pumpkin Pie (Wiping the tears of hysterical laughter from his eyes):  Right.  So can I plant this seed and grow a bagel tree?

Me: Sure.  Remember where you plant it so we know where it is.

Pumpkin Pie: We will know where it is because there will be a BAGEL TREE growing there.

Me: Right. Duh.

Nothing says good morning like fresh picked bagels and here at Hotel Cloud 8, we grow our own on the premises.

    LOL I knew where this was going when I saw the title. Had a great night last night and it didn’t matter that I hadn’t read the book. I hope you weren’t disappointed that we didn’t discuss much. I would have been.

    Oh, I WISH bagels grew on trees. I love bagels more than almost anything. You know, except french fries.

  3. I wish pizza grew on trees and it rained pesto. I LOVE pesto.
