More Pie

My father has been struggling with kidney problems for years and is starting dialysis this week. This means he’ll have to make some changes in his diet. The other day I overheard this conversation while my parents where looking over his dietary guideline.

My mom: This says you’ll have to eat more protein.

My father: Protein?

My mother: Yeah, you should try to eat protein with every meal.

My father: Does that mean I can eat more pie?
