Twinkies they just never disappoint. In fact they last forever. I read that on the internet. It’s a fact that these little chunks of spongy heaven will outlast the cellophane they are wrapped in. And that’s because they are made with a common chemical used in embalming fluid.
Well if only that were true…
But alas the sad fact is Twinkies don’t last forever. They only have a shelf life of 25 days. I know this might crush your universe, but there is a possibility that you could open a Twinkie and be disappointed. That small mound of creamy filled goodness could in fact . . . betray your trust.
And I know that you are asking the question I once asked, “Well if I can’t trust in a Twinkie what CAN I trust in?” The day I realized this was a very sad day indeed.
The fact is everything in this life will disappoint you.
Material things. How long did that new car smell last?
Circumstances. Ever have something NOT go your way?
Politics. Ever had a politician you voted for NOT keep a promise?
Relationships. Ever been hurt by someone you care about?
Yourself. How long did that New Year’s resolution last?
Everything and everyone in this life will betray your trust at some point . . . except one person.
