When my son was about 16 months old, my girlfriend invited us over for some wonderful Razzleberry Pie. As I recall, it was a three berry pie: blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. All the sweetness of summer was packed inside that pastry shell. My son had never had a fruit pie before, and I think he actually did just about die and go to heaven.

When the kid really loved something he was eating, he made this sound that, back then, we called “wasping”. It was a little hum, along the lines of “nom, nom, nom” that waxed and waned and waxed again. His vocabulary may have been limited, but his ability to communicate his culinary pleasure certainly wasn’t. There was never a doubt in our minds when he was in love with what he was eating: the “wasp” would begin to buzz.

You know, they say a picture’s worth a thousand words, and it so happens that on this occasion, taking a photograph was absolutely irresistible. If you like pictures of casualties of war, you’ll love this picture of my Baby Boy, wasping over his Razzleberry Pie.

Nom, nom, nom. (Notice: it’s in his hair, too.)

My girlfriend had a white tile table, with white grout between the tiles. You KNOW she needed some Clorox THAT night, to bleach away the evidence of my boy’s Berry Bacchanalia. But oh, how we laughed. That moment was as delicious as the pie itself.
