I just have a thing for slurpee’s. Not sure what it is, but J got me hooked again on the frozen Coke’s. Sure, we usually stop at Speedway to get our frozen pop, but I was near a 7-Eleven today and decided to stop in.
There are several 7-Eleven locations in the Lansing metro area. This particular store is on Jolly Road where it meets Aurelius on the way to Okemos.

J and I found some at Horrocks so we stocked up and shipped some hoping to get a tasty return package.
The Holt post office that I usually go to closed at noon for some reason so I had to head out to the post office on Collins Road. After that, I needed to go back to Kroger to pick something up for dinner. A third stop was going to be Speedway for a frozen Coke and a Mega Millions ticket, but I saw the 7-Eleven as I was turning back on to Aurelius and realized it was easier to get in and out of a convience store than a busy gas station.
7-Eleven is big in the Chicago area so they a history with me. I always think of 7-Eleven as dirty stores run by shady people. That seems to be the trend in Chicago.
