Happy Convenience Store Day: Let Me Be the First to Wish You A...

While writing checks today, I happened to notice while entering them, that today is a time to honor those purveyors of Big Gulps and my favorite, Slurpees!!!

The date says it all, July 11, 2011.

That translates to 7-11-11. Actually, it's double day with the 11-11.

And, I missed it (bet you did too), but four days we were supposed to honor them again on 7-7-11.

Man! Now I've got a hankerin' for a Slurpees and the inevitable brain freeze.

Do you remember back when 7-11s first came out with Big Gulps? Before that, most places served 12 and 16 ounce drinks. Sort of shook up the pecking order.
