Eating twinkies vs. doing drugs
I was in the states for about two years, and during that time I gained a ton a weight, it was fun, lemme tell ya. All that food I had never tried before. I felt like Charlie and the chocolate factory, just going wild at Smiths.
This one day, after watching UHF where weird Al eats a twinkie-dog (a hot dog in a twinkie) I really wanted to try a twinkie, not that the twinkie-dog was particularly appealing, but the twinkie just looked so sugary and scrumptious. So while grocery shopping with my roommates I decided to look up the twinkies and get a box. They weren't hard to find, but then, as I stood there with the box of twinkies in my hand ready to place them in my shopping cart this lady comes up and says "don't buy them" and I am like "what?!?" and she goes "twinkies are worse than drugs! you get so addicted and then they kill you" and so I put the box back and never ever bought twinkies. To this day I do not know what twinkies taste like, and I don't really want to know... I wish someone had said that to me about all the candies and sugary foods I felt the need to try while I was there.
Also, there is nothing quite so attractive as a man who plays good music.
