Sure You Can Spare It?

Free Slurpee

Why yes, I am a sucker for free things. Free shipping, free furniture, free lunches, free-dom. Buy one get one free is cool with me too. This is why I decided to stop in to my local 7 Eleven today to get my free Slurpee. I love free and I love Slurpees, so how could I go wrong?

When I asked the clerk which size I could get for free, she pointed me to the stack of short Dixie cups. Whoa! Are you sure you can spare it? I mean, those 3 ounces of flavored ice must be setting the corporation back a good $0.04 or so!

Did anyone else partake in this free gulp of nothingness?

    I didn’t know about this. I wish I had known. I am a sucker for sucking on a Slurpee and work right close to a 7-11 in Bethesda. Oh well. Maybe after another 80 years I can get one.

    Yeah, I got my free 3 oz. at the Foggy Bottom 7-11 along with a $3 half-gallon of milk. There was a kind of halfhearted attempt at Kwik-E-Mart-style Simpsons marketing going on too, evidenced by a couple of branded “sale” signs and a “Squishee” label over the Slurpees.
