When I got home from work the other day, I smelled what seemed to be homemade apple pie! I thought my wife was baking it in the oven and I was looking forward to dessert that night.
Well, I was surprised when there was nothing cooking in the oven.
I thought possibly the apple pie was already made and cooling off, but I didn’t see it anywhere. I asked my wife about it and she said there wasn’t any apple pie. I sat there feeling stupid for a minute and then I asked why it smelled like apple pie in the house. Then my wife suddenly said, “Oh!” as though she remembered something and told me she bought air filters. I failed to see what air filters had to do with the smell of apple pie and I was just looking at her. Then she smiled and said the air filters were scented and these ones were apple pie scented. It all suddenly made sense. She asked if I minded and I said they seemed to be alright. The air quality wasn’t bad and I certainly didn’t mind the smell even though it did make me crave apple pie. She said if I really wanted some apple pie she would make it for me the next day after she went to the store to get some food supplies. This sounded like a plan to me! When I told the guys my story at work, they all laughed and said I must have been upset when I learned it wasn’t really apple pie. I did say the air filters seemed amazing though.
