I’ve talked about my co-worker friend Sam a couple of times in the last few posts. She took me for the first and best Philly cheese steak hoagie, and then to the first and best pizza in New York. Well, Sam has truly blasted herself into the realm of best foodie friend EVER because this morning I was woken up by the delivery guy dropping off a humongous parcel of AWESOMENESS!
Sam sent me a care-snack-thank-you package all the way from the States, containing all the brilliant snacks I’d encountered along the way. We have pop-tarts (eating some for breakfast right now), peanut butter m&ms, these awesome peanut butter filled crackers, Velveeta instant mac (well, shells) and cheese, Fiber One “healthier” pop-tarts and the creme de la creme of the parcel, my own jar of CHEEZ WHIZ hellz yeahhhhhhhhh!!!!
And there were also a bunch of mini moon pies! I didn’t know what they were but Sam also included a note about moon pies being from ‘Bama (where the package was sent from). She tells me that Mardi Gras originated from Mobile, Alabama (her home town) and people would throw these around during the parade, yelling out “Bubba want a moon pie?!” and the crowd would yell back “me! me! me!” LOL… I want to be there 🙂
She also said “now that’s Hicksville”, but I can vouch that it ain’t no Hicksville. Hicksville we saw with our own eyes on the way out to Long Island for work one day. Check it out, a real life train station in Hicksville, Long Island:
