'tis the season
Slurpee Season, that is! Today, in the midst of our family outings and errands, we stopped at 7-11 and partook of the inaugural Slurpee of the year. I have to admit, as I stood at the Slurpee counter and looked undecidedly over the eight flavors, I felt a twinge of excitement flutter up from my stomach. Oh yes! Give me sweet, sugary (or not, depending on your flavor of choice), syrupy goodness, complete with a straw-spoon! What better way to enjoy a warm day! My flavors of choice were Coca-cola, pina colada and wild cherry, alternated in attractive layers of red, white and brown. Okay, so the brown doesn't make for the loveliest Slurpee rainbow, but it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make. To round out our "lunch," we got a bag of Cheetos.
I would make a lousy health food purist. And I'm okay with that.
