The Twinkie of the thrift store

So quite a few posts ago I affectionately crowned flannel shirts the”roach of the thrift store”. I crowned them that due to their presence in EVERY thrift store and home in America.

Well, roaches have to eat and I imagine that if roaches had a choice they would eat twinkies.

Twinkies are creamy, sweet, and taste good.

Get your mind out of the gutter! We’re talking about Twinkies here!

Roaches and twinkies are a lot alike. They would both survive a nuclear disaster, their prevalent in most homes, and they taste good fried.

They would definitely date each other, and like praying mantis roaches would eat the twinkie after they got it on.

So it’s only fair to speak about the twinkie of the thrift store after speaking on the love of it’s life the roach of it. Not speaking on it would be like talking about Romeo and no Juliet, Milk and no cereal, peanut butter and no jelly.

So the twinkie of the thrift store is the mom jean.

Mom jeans are a part of popular culture. They’ve been everywhere from the white house to the rhythm nation tour. The mom jean gets around 😉

Something about moms is alluring. Ask the billions of kids under ten who can’t live without them. Hell, ask anyone under 25! My mom was out here holding it down with the home cooked meals up until a few years ago.

Moms are superheroes, and people like to dress like superheros. I can’t walk down the street without seeing at least five Ms. Incredible wannabes.



Moms will hit you with the power of bringing home the bacon, cooking the bacon, and then being the bacon. All while being cute.

Sounds like a superhero to me!

The amazing wardrobe staple called the mom jean can be found at a thrift store near you. Also real twinkies can be found at a grocery store near you. Or your pantry. Or if you are “one of those” in your fridge.

Do you own a pair of mom jeans?
