Dimples: We should just cut [the piece of pie] up.
Me: No, I’m going to ask Manager, and when he sees how small it is he’ll demur and let us split it.
Dimples: Oh, that’s a good idea.
Me: *holding up the one largish piece* This was all that was left, do you want any?
Manager: No, you guys can just split it. I’ll be outside unloading trailers.
Dimples: Did you ask Manager about the pie?
Me: He said to split it.
Dimples: I knew he would.
