Day 21 (Part 3): Slurpees

Stopped at 7-11 today and bought a cherry Slurpee. Sort of a nostalgia thing, I guess. Actually, truth is, I needed to break a $50 and a Slurpee seemed a good way to do that.

Anyway--got my Slurpee and a bag of Doritos. Those buggers leave you with bad breath, so to counter that, I popped a piece of Dentyne Ice gum into my mouth.

And here's the moral of today's story: Never, never, never chew mint gum and slurp a cherry Slurpee. EVER.

Tastes like all those gawd-awful cherry cold syrups we subject ourselves to in an effort to fight aches, sniffles, coughs, and sleeplessness when we're sick.

NEVER, EVER, EVER. Ruined the Slurpee for me. As I type this, it's sitting in the cupholder in my car, melting.

ha ha ha ha. This is so funny, J. I'm sorry your Slurpee joy has been crushed.

Yeah. It was a huge bummer, dude. Seriously, though, it was just downright nasty. Blech.

Of course, I'm sure there are some who will read this blog entry and say, "Well, duh." I suppose I should have known better.

Mountain Dew tastes better after you brush your teeth. It's hard to tell how our guilty pleasures will react in proximity.

We used to mix cherry Icee and Sprite at my first (and only) food service job. Pepsi with cherry Icee was pretty good, too.
