The education of a child

We were in the grocery store this afternoon and I had a “Mmm…Twinkies!” moment. The short kid asked what a Twinkie was.


How could the short kid be six and a half and not have had a Twinkie? (The tall kid didn’t like the one he had when he was like…3, and he has a ‘one strike’ rule.) So I bought a box. The short kid has now had a Twinkie.

I…have had six of the other nine.

Now I remember why we don’t ever have a box of Twinkies in the house.

    OMG no twinkies?
    I totally need to get you the twinkie cake recipe from my mother in law. I just know it’s layers of shredded twinkies with strawberries and then some kind of strawberry glaze.

    It’s to DIE for.
    Have a twinkie for me. I was bad and had a Krispy Kreme for breakfast. :hide:
