first things first: the twinkies

I was reading a blog one afternoon and wandered over to the comments. A movie line was quoted and a contest started: whoever could name the movie the quote came from won a box of Twinkies. A week went by and I was reading the blog again and noticed that no one had guessed the right movie yet. I Googled the line and The Burbs (a movie I had never heard of) came up, which I promptly posted as a comment. About a week later I received a box of Twinkies from a stranger living in Sugar Land, Texas (my favorite part). Thank you Google. I thought to myself, “If I had a blog, I would blog about this,” starting a series of “if I had a blog” thoughts. Proudly, almost a year later, I’m blogging about it.


About the Twinkies.  As a child, Twinkies were not the snack of choice given to me by my mother, so I only had them at friends’ houses. I loved them. As an adult, I was very excited to get such a fun snack in the mail, however, after the box was empty I didn’t rush to the store to get more. In fact, I haven’t had a Twinkie since and that’s okay–they were better when I was younger.
