Oh thank heaven, it's 7/11. That means today is Slurpee Day, a decidedly commercial publicity stunt that we acknowledge every year because it's clever, and because it involves free Slurpees. The 7-Eleven Website has details on how this works. For all the times I threatened to do so, I've almost never actually collected on this deal, even though for years we lived just a few miles from a 7-Eleven. The nearest one to our new home is much farther, but we're actually planning a trip to our old stomping grounds today to pick up some mail and such, so I have a chance of invoking a bit of irony if we end up going to the store near there. Though we do see a recent story saying there are now over 60,000 7-Elevens in 17 countries, apologies to our friends in other locations where this offer will be difficult or impossible to collect upon. But you only have yourself to blame if you live somewhere too dignified for convenience stores, not to mention where they write the date backwards.
