Free Slurpees Today At 7-Eleven!

Free Slurpees Today At 7-Eleven!

It's time to talk about my dear friend Terry again, which, as you know, means that a free food or drink alert is most certainly in order.

Terry is a real stand-up guy who absolutely loves free giveaways.  This past weekend, Terry officiated a wedding for his college roommate, a huge feat and a fantastic honorary deed for the bearded Bostonian.  While the joy of proclaiming his good friends husband and wife was overwhelming emotionally for Terrence, my guess is he will get more excited to know that today, July 11, is Free Slurpee Day at 7-Eleven.

Yes Terry, and others who are like Terry and love giveaways, you heard that right: Free slurpees today.
