Today is 7/11 also known as Free Slurpee from 7-11 Day! Hooray!
For those of you who don’t know, 7/11 is 7-11’s birthday, and instead of us giving 7-11 a gift, we get one!
So from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., today there were free slurpees! I surprised my DA Blodgett Little Sister by going to get some. I know she doesn’t look thrilled here, but she was happy! (And the sun was in our eyes.)
It’s not often you see corporations giving away frees stuff for without a gimic in it for them. I mean, you don’t see Arnie’s giving away pie on 3/14! Okay okay. Not every bakery should have to give away free pie on pi day, but I thoroughly believe they all should at least consider it!
I’ll end this with a fun fact. 7-11 was named 7-11 because it used to be open from 7 in the morning until 11 in the evening! Thank you, 7-11, for so generously giving us sugary goodness in an otherwise health-crazed world.
Free anything, especially slurpees make for a good day!
