I have always loved the number combination of 7.11; my adoration for it starting of course from a childhood love for 711 slurpees. My dad and I bonded over slurpees,and I could inevitably convince him into a 711 date at any given time. Even though we lived far from civilization out in Lake of the Woods, Virginia, I always considered myself lucky to have a 711 only 5 miles from our house. 5 miles made the perfect father-daughter outing.
Nothing beats starting a Monday morning on the wrong side of the bed to find out that the date is 7/11, and that in fact 711 stores around the country are giving away free slurpees all day long. Moreover, I have a 711 right in the parking lot of where I work! Could anyone be luckier?!
Enjoy your Monday, this 7/11, be it with slurpees or slurpee-less, and if you chose a slurpee do make sure it’s a small one and sugar-free Crystal Light. Everything in moderation is a good thing. Moreover, for me, this 7/11 has already been the perfect Monday — a Monday that started with anxiety and has since transformed into youthful excitment.
Slurp up some youth for yourself today and stop taking Mondays so seriously.
