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!) :

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 πŸ™‚

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