The Comfort of Apple Crisp

It's one of those times you try to stay busy as you flow about the kitchen avoiding politics, sex, and religion. You listen quietly attempting to make polite conversation. You make a simple joke and receive raised eyebrow. You open the cupboard and the Tupperware explodes out across the floor. The facade of the good housewife has been revealed and you get the burning look of disapproval.
