This is the Day 5 Post for Debbie Reynolds 's 10 day challenge where she asks us to write about things we are thankful for.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love stopping by my local 7-11 for an afternoon (or morning or evening) Big Gulp. Yes, I could fix myself a diet coke at home but it just isn't quite the same.
I know this is an addiction and at some point in my life I may have to seek help, but for now, I am able to handle my addiction and consume in moderation.
I am so thankful to have a fairly new 7-11 which opened only 2.2 miles from my house. In desperate times, I could even walk to this 7-11 but I would probably have to indulge in a Double Gulp if it ever came to that.
It is so nice walking in to my favorite beverage location and have everyone know me by name.
After the usual chit chat about my day, they ask me the all important question:
NEW OR REFILL?
I try to save my Super Gulp cups and rinse them out for refills in the store, but sometimes, you just have to go with NEW.
