Pie in the Sky

.

Rabbi and Rebbetzin Jacobson invited their new neighbors, the Applebaums, for Shabbos dinner. Not wanting to go empty handed Mrs. Applebaum baked an apple pie and brought it over. Rebbetzin Jacobson appreciated the gesture and happily served it at the Shabbos table. But when dessert came and she took a bite, it was clear from the first moment that the pie was terrible. She looked over at her husband the Rabbi and he too could hardly conceal his disgust. As soon as the Applebaums left, the Jacobsons threw the pie out immediately.

Now Rebbetzin Jacobson had a tradition of writing thank you notes to anyone who brought over a gift. As the same time she was a very honest person and couldn’t say anything that was untrue. So she sent a note to Mrs. Applebaum which read: "Thank you very much for the apple pie. Something like that doesn't last very long in our house."
