How Do You Eat A Twinkie?

Yesterday evening, I came home from work to find a notice in my mail box that I had a parcel waiting for me at the post office. I’ve been expecting something from a very dear friend of mine and I figured it had arrived. So, I stopped by the post office on my way home from work this evening to pick up my parcel.

Most people mistakenly send my gifts to the 2nd igloo on the right.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this return address sticker:

Love the Nanny Goat label!

Amazingly, Margaret and I have very similar addresses!

What? Margaret? Did she mistakenly send me another White Elephant present? I raced home to open the box. I found this:

It has my name on it!! Yay, she wasn't drunk after all!!!

I contained my excitement and decided to examine each individual item. First, this awesome pen (in my favourite colour, no less!) :

Nanny Goat pen

I started writing "Nicky was here" on everything.

Then there was the calendar:

I can actually start crossing off the days until TBCon!

But the best, the absolute GREATEST part was this:

Seriously?! There better not be dog coasters in this box!!!

See, a week and a half ago, I was chatting with everyone at the Tribal Blogs Saturday Night Slumber Party. Somehow, we got on the subject of Twinkies and I told everyone that I’d never had a Twinkie before. I don’t know about the rest of Canada, but we don’t have them here in Even More Canada (a.k.a. Montreal). Margaret, that sweetheart, wrote me a note saying “...it tore at my heartstrings when I discovered the travesty that was the lack of a certain pseudo-baked good in your life. It was then that I knew my mission: to smuggle Twinkies into Even More Canada – Boo-wha-wha-hahaaaaa!

How do you eat a Twinkie? Well, when it’s contraband smuggled into the country by a friend in California, you look over your shoulder a few times, then cram the whole damn thing into your mouth!

Thank you so much Margaret! You are now my Twinkie pusher 🙂

And just in case anyone is curious, we don’t have Cookie Crisp cereal here either.

  • It doesn’t ring true. I’m all about the Twinkies.

  • No, that thought never occurred to me. And even after reading it, it still doesn’t occur to me. I’m welcome.

  • That Picture is awesome. Can i use it for an avatar?

  • Yes, you can 🙂

  • Yeah, I don’t have a clue what he’s talking about either. I say something sweet and complimentary to my favorite honeychild, and he goes off in a twit. He writes crude horrid stuff and should be banned for doing so. I couldn’t even bring myself to come over here for days because of his unpleasant commentary.

  • Goddesses never lie Michael. Bite your Godiva chocolate cheesecake tongue.

  • If you want to know what’s IN a Twinkie

    A) you’d need a microscope to read it off the package
    or
    B) you could rent Diehard and listen as the cop tells Bruce Willis
    but either way
    C) you’d dump that crap faster than Egypt dumped Mubarak

  • There’s no need to commit to a whole box without even knowing what they actually taste like or what their texture is.

    Do you have sugar at home? You can make your own sample:
    -Dump half a pound onto your counter.
    -take a damp sponge and wipe up all the sugar
    -eat sponge

    bon-a-petite

  • Wait, you did mean the picture of the calendar, right?

  • Um, it’s okay. Ignorance truly is bliss.

    Huh. Okay, I’m sorry.

    No, really I’m not. But I feel should be. Are you taking me off the list, Nicky?

    Jepeto?

  • No, I’m not taking you off the list. You are, however, a little further down on that list. 🙂

    Just looking at the time stamps on these comments, I think you might be lying just a little.

    Actually, Santa Claus.

  • Yeah sure, like the fat man shares anything sweet!

  • You guys are so clueless. Sweden gets their sugar from Denmark, everyone knows that. And I would never lie. Unless this was a lie too.. You’ll never know now.

  • I saw twinkie in movies, and since we don’t have twinkie here in India, I wonder how’s the taste? I saw in travel show, that in one restaurant, they coated twinkie with batter and fried it. I would love to try it if I can get one.
