bear with me…I have no freakin idea why these letters are sooo big… erggg.!
it’s like( holy shit, I have no idea w.t.h. just happened with the letters now, it’s all back to normal)… ok, whatever… someone’s messing with me… I am just going with it… maybe I ate too many Twinkies when I was a kid…. CRAP>>>NOW, I am all off topic… never said I was a writer did I?? k. back to it…. oh yes… TWINKIES … a childhood favourite for sure. I know I grew up on them. Well, lets be clear, as a very special treat.Trust me on this one, my Mom was like the queen of the kitchen. Way before Martha Stewart was saying “it’s a good thing”. Our house was all about home baked bread, home canned fruit, jam, from berries we picked ourselves and salmon, which was caught by my Dad. We practically ate a retro 100 mile diet before it was all trendy. The one thing we got to eat that wasn’t home spun were Twinkies and Ding Dongs. OMG… we were ecstatic to see one of those baby’s in our lunch box. It kind of sad that they will be eradicated off the planet but probably a “good thing” . Although, after you see some random facts listed below,I am quite certain that there will still be some of you out there that will miss em’ .
