It might be a good thing I didn’t get any questions this week. I’ve been in mourning ever since I heard the news that Hostess is going out of business, and with it goes my beloved Twinkies.
This is the last time I had a taste of one, and it was over a year ago:
If I had known it would be my last taste, I would have demanded more than one bite, and I would have made sure to commit it to memory, so that it would be there riding on my brain waves where I could sit back, close my eyes, and remember how it tasted.
And man, along with no more Twinkies…do more Ding Dongs (other than the ones I live with) and no more tiny little donuts that were easy to knock out of the Woman’s hand onto the floor, where I would get a couple of really good bites before she could launch her massive asterisk out of her chair to take it away from me.
I wanted to ask the Woman to go to the store this weekend and get me one last box, but she’s been all sickly and just sits here in the living room coughing and sneezing…and beside, by the time I heard about it the store shelves were picked clean and the only place to get a Twinkie is on eBay, and people are selling them for like $200 a box!
This is so depressing. How can the world survive without Twinkies?
Thanksgiving is this week, but doods, I dunno. I’m not sure I have much to be thankful about now. Except maybe crunchy treats. And real live fresh dead foods. And cheese, I like cheese. But man, no more Twinkies…
