Wow 20k dollars is a lot.

I have never had pie in my life. I have always wanted to eat pie and an Italian made pizza.

My father had an operation last week and still wasn't feeling well yesterday so I got half a peach pie and paid him a visit. In no time he was up and about as if nothing had happened. Pie. Is there anything it can't do?

I'll wait till I'm 95 so I can get it really cheap. Seriously though, they're not pricing that right. If they take in $10,000, they could invest it at 3% interest and get $300 per year. That would pay them $25 per pie in perpetuity, and they could even keep the $10,000 after you die. There's no reason they have to charge more for a young person. Now me, I can do math, but I can't make pie, so I guess we all have our little talents.
