Twinkie Tour In Dream.


Between Blog people and Twitterers probably 40 – 50 of you have made appearances in my dreams. Here’s one from the other night that featured Trina from the blog Trina Likes Wine (Twitter name: @TrinaLikesWine ):


We decided to do a humor/food podcast so we were at the Twinkie factory to get a tour of the plant. We were going record it for the podcast. We went in for the tour and were acting really sarcastic - like we were thrilled to be there and it was the most amazing place on earth.


The tour guide was this really boring, nerdy man with big ass glasses and had no idea we were goofing on the whole thing. So we’re walking down the hall with him…


Trina: Can we see the state of the art employee break room? Can we? Can we?


Tour Guide: Well Ma’am it’s not on the official tour but…


Trina: So we CAN see it?


We walk into the employee break room and it’s a typical factory break room with circa 1970s tables and chairs and a few vending machines. We both pretend like it’s the most fascinating place we’ve even seen


Trina: Oh my God! It’s like walking into the future!


Me: Whoa! Look at the art. Are these originals?


We look at the safety posters that hang on the walls. One shows the proper way to lift things.


Me: Wow! Do they show films about how to lift things properly? And in the film one guy doesn’t lift the Twinkie the proper way and his back breaks? So he’s crippled? And now he sits in his wheelchair outside peering in a tiny window at the Twinkie assembly line regretting that he didn’t lift the right way? And a single tear drips down his cheek?


Tour Guide: Well. I don’t think so. Are you ready to begin the official tour?


Trina rubs the back of the metal chair in faked amazement.


Trina: Do we get to wear hair nets? Do we? Do we?

Why does the tour guide say, "Trina rubs the back of the metal chair in faked amazement"???

I think you should do a blog post on cool dogs. Maybe one you know. Maybe a Mastiff.

Sybil - Yeah me too.

Anon - Perhaps.

And I rushed this post out. Maybe I'll fix it.

hahaha! I would have also asked to meet that Twinkie guy...the cowboy with the lasso? Him. And I'd refuse to leave until they produced him.
