Pumpkin or Pecan Pie! Oh, my!

“What moistens the lip and what brightens the eye?
What calls back the past, like the rich pumpkin pie?”
—John Greenleaf Whittier, The Pumpkin, 1844

Every pie lover is fully aware of the difficult task that lies before him on Thanksgiving Day. With so many mouth-watering options to choose from, picking just one slice of pie can be an almost impossible task. Fortunately, you have time to ponder this momentous decision as you travel to your Thanksgiving feast.  With the aid of a Hertz rental car, you will have plenty of time and mental energy to devote to your sugary thoughts. Your rental car will allow you to ride in comfort and style so you’re not distracted from your pie musings by a broken heater or busted radio. In addition, the Hertz NeverLost Companion Mobile application will guide you to your destination so you can travel safely over the mountain, through the woods, or across the city to your day of festivities.

These comforts and assurances give you the chance to weigh the pros and cons of choosing grandma’s pumpkin pie over your aunt’s pecan pie. You’ve finally made up your mind that pumpkin is definitely the way to go when your NeverLost app reminds you there’s a turn coming ahead. This recalls your attention to your journey and you notice the abundance of pecan trees lining the road. By the time you make your turn, you’ve decided that it would be a terrible shame to decline a warm slice of that homemade pecan heaven, and you find yourself leaning toward your aunt’s signature dessert instead.

Though your trip lasts just over three hours and you’ve traveled in toasty comfort (without putting all those extra miles on your own car), you still haven’t decided which Thanksgiving pie to choose. You navigate your Hertz rental car into the already crowded driveway of your destination and think of all the friends and loved ones gathered inside for a day of good food and great company. It’s then that you finally decide you’ll take a piece of whichever pie is offered to you first.

You press the automatic door lock on your Hertz key chain and start toward the house. A moment later you’re welcomed inside to a warm room buzzing with laughter and entertaining conversation. The tantalizing scent of pumpkin and pecan reach you before you can take another step, and your resolve waivers. Perhaps there’s room for more than just one piece of pie. Choosing between two perfect desserts seems wrong amid such gladsome celebration. Pumpkin and pecan shall each have their chance today. After all, Thanksgiving only comes once a year.
