SLURPEE SAFARI


The Mermaid and I fell victim to one of the greatest marketing schemes of the year. On July 11, the ever present at least in a great deal of the country, 7-ll was giving away Slurpees. These were sample size freebies. 7.11 ounces to be exact.

So on 7/11, 7-11, gave away 7.11 ounce Slurpees for free.

July 11th was a Saturday. Monday evening about 10pm Mermaid asks “Do you want to go get a Slurpee? I have been craving one since that little one on Sunday”

I am always up for a Slurpee. So we jumped in the truck and headed to one of two near by 7-11s We struck out there. No good flavors. So back in the truck to the second close 7-11.

This one had good flavors, but none of them were ready.

That's right. At this point it had become a quest. Back to the truck, to head to the cluster of 4, 7-11s within a mile of each other. Two which are right across the street from each other.

We did not even walk into the third one. We could see the flavors from the outside. So off we went again.

At the fourth one we hit Slurpee paydirt. Flavors we both liked and all were ready.

Cue the victory dance music.

No we were not high. We just would not be denied.

Until Next Time

I am as always ready for a good quest.

Amazon does that a lot too. Around the holiday time they would often say that if you purchased a certain amount in dollar value you could choose from bunch of free stuff related to the items you bought ( in my case it was camcorder accessories ) but at least half of these "free" items claimed to be out of stock! So I tested it to see if that was really the case.

When I pretended that I wished to buy one of the alleged "out of stock free items" it rang it up on my shopping cart fine with no hint that the item might be out of stock.

I tried calling foul but the process was so convoluted to do that, that I just decided to boycott them. So far so good on the boycott.

I also enjoy boycotting Microsoft.

I knew I forgot something in the post

Mermaid had Mango-Passion Fruit mixed with Wild Cherry. She is like a kid mixing flavors to get a combination that appeals to her

I am a simple sort. Classic Coke

As much as you have been on the move this summer, you probably need one.
Either that or the power of suggestion is more powerful then I thought. In case the later is correct I am going to tell my boss to give me a huge raise

Simply put it is a semi frozen soft drink. It is sold at a convince store that populates most areas of the United States. Guess I should have explained that. My appologies

I do like a good Slurpee every now and then. My local 7-11 has a Crystal Light tropical flavor that I really like, but many times it's not ready when I am there, so I can relate to your Slurpee frustration.

Elevate me...

The Slurpee quandary, you see it going round and round yet it is not done. So close and yet so far

Alas, we have no 7-11's here in western NC! I still have my 'Extreme Gulp' mug though, and refill it daily at the local gas station. I used to enjoy slurpees, but after cutting down on my sugars, the pickings on flavors was pretty thin! Used to dig the banana ones.

No 7-11's here in Bama either. Nor did I make it Taco Bell for whatever they were giving away recently.

I SOO understand that...sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do...

I make mistakes, I am out of control & at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn
