The other day, a friend asked me this trivia question: "What was the original flavor of the filling in Twinkies?"
"Banana!" I replied. "I read a whole book about Twinkies once."
"Really?" he asked incredulously. My friend reads a lot of non-fiction like I do, but the topics rarely overlap. Sometimes when we're at Borders, he'll pick up a book and ask, "Who would buy a book about this?" Then I'll go back a few days later and buy it for myself.
"Yeah, it was about where the ingredients for Twinkies come from," I said. "And come to think of it, I once read a book about bananas, too!" I'm pretty sure both books included the answer to his question.
