Anyway, buy a freaking twinkie you know you want to, who can resist. Life is a lot like a twinkie. So many of us hold are sweetness inside, sheltering it from the rest of the world. The world finds a chance to... to take a bite, changing us, exposing our vulnerability, showing our transparent inner self to... to the world. Knowing that we are probably only a passing fancy, one of immediate satisfaction. Twinkies are moments. Each is a short commitment, quick satisfaction, a delightful sugar high. But all things must and do come to an end. And you will finish the twinkie, everyone does. You may eat it in sections. You may lick out the sweet innocencee of its center. You may dive in and enjoy all its riches from end to end. But you will finish it all. You will take your moment, your chance, your pleasure, your delight. Enjoy your days, moment to moment, like a twinkie excursion. Remember the tastes, remember the feel, and remember the moments. Life is rich with moments, how ever you choose to devour its sensations.
Just a thought on this purely American, pre-packaged, fully manufactured, taste sensation. Wanna Twinkie? Enjoy each moment in your life! There will never be another like it!
