One New Thing Every Day

From the day I turned 29, I tried to do one new thing a day... it took a few extra months, but I did it! Now I'll post new things randomly as I try them.

#258 - National Slurpee Day

I did not know that today is a national holiday... apparently, each year on July 11 (get it, 7/11?) all 7-11 stores nationwide give away free Slurpees. So today, on my way home from work, I stopped to get a Slurpee and partake in this fabulous new holiday. The free Slurpees were the child-size cups, but that was plenty to give myself a beauty of a brain freeze in the car on the way home. There had some interesting-sounding flavors to choose from, including a sugar-free Crystal Light lemonade flavor, but I'm a traditionalist when it comes to my Slurpees and I got the original cherry flavor (now made with cherry Fanta, I guess, but it tasted the same to me). I called each member of my immediate family to invite them to their nearest 7-11 to enjoy this wonderful holiday, though I don't think any of them took me up on it. Their loss.
