Galley Mom AMJCL calls in with a report that today is the 40th Anniversary of the Slurpee. Excellent news for all.
The Slurpee is a favorite of my youth, and was nearly always consumed as post-tennis or basketball refreshment, along with a bag of Smartfood. Oh, the joys of a growing up in New Jersey idyll.
Of course, you don't care about that. But you may care that 7-11 is serving up free Slurpees all day in celebration. Go. Enjoy. And if you can, mix the Cherry and Coke flavors, and pour some for your homey.
