What could Garvey’s observation that “all the world is a hot dog” (139) mean?

Garvey decides to share his hot dog with Cole. Garvey's act of sharing transforms simple food into a celebration. Each time Cole takes a bite, Garvey makes a toast, "Here's to the sun and the rain."This way Garvey is able to share the hotdog with everybody and make it part of everyone's experience,
"All of life is a hot dog. Make it what you will. I suggest you make your time on the island a delectation."
HE MEANS THAT YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN DECIDE WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR LIFE. HE DECIDED TO SHARE HIS HOT DOG.
