Out of the Blue

Happy 7/11! As you may well know by now, this means that folks in the US are entitled to collect a free small Slurpee from their local 7-Elevens. Regular readers should know this simply because I mention it every year. The interesting confession that goes along with this is that I don't think I've ever had a free Slurpee. But I am intrigued by the concept, and, of course, free stuff. Our previous home was not much more than five minutes from the local 7-Eleven, but I don't think we ever cashed in on the free deal. It's funny, because the few times we did go and buy Slurpees they proved to be a glorious way to get relief from the heat. It looks like the nearest 7-Eleven to our new home is about 15 minutes away, so I guess that means we're about three times less likely to make it out there. Wish us luck!
