Oh, Thank Heaven: Get Free Slurpees Tomorrow (July 11) at 7-Eleven

My conquest tomorrow.

Every year, July rolls around and I count the days until it’s Free Slurpee Day at 7-Eleven. No joke. My life is that pathetic. I’m telling you guys this because I know that some of you, gasp!, have never tried a Slurpee before. Please correct this offense, pronto. It’s 7-Eleven’s 85th birthday on July 11, and you should celebrate by getting a free 7.11 oz. cherry cola Slurpee. In case you still need convincing, here’s why:

  1. It’s FREE. Even though slurpees are actually pretty cheap every other day of the year, how many times do you get free drinks outside of college? Take advantage of every free opportunity, I say. Like this World Bazaar ticket giveaway. (Even if you’re not participating, you should read the comments. I’ve been laughing my head off all morning.)
  2. It’s summer. It’s scorching. You want an icy Slurpee.
  3. You get to skip work. I’m pretty sure your boss would understand if you left your desk for thirty minutes to get a free Slurpee. The conversation would go like this:

You: Hey, I’m leaving work.

Boss: Why?

You: Free Slurpee Day.

Boss: Alright, I’m coming with you.

Skip the Slurpee Lite crap and go straight for the sugary stuff. That’s my plan, anyway.
