I know this is blog #2 in one day which is slight overkill, but this just happened and I thought it was funny enough to double blog. So I was driving to the bank this afternoon and decided I needed to stop at the sev (7-11) and get a diet coke. Doesn't seem too complicated, right? I'm at the machine filling up the 32 oz cup, thinking about dumb and dumber, and as the pop nears the top I stop filling and go to take the cup away but the diet coke keeps flowing! Somehow the damn machine malfunctioned and it wouldn't turn off. It all happened so fast! DC was running down my arms and splashing on the floor and I yelled, OH, SH*T!! There was a guy next to me also filling up a cup and he started laughing and jumped back to avoid getting splashed, but in the process he dropped his cup on the ground. It was an explosion of carbonation. We both started punching the machine and finally the heavenly goodness stopped flowing. I always thought I'd love an endless supply of diet coke, but then when it happened I changed my mind. Be careful what you wish for. It was so funny!! Luckily we were both wearing shorts and flip flops so we just went to the dirty little sev sink and hosed each other down. Maybe this was God's way of reminding me that righteous kids don't drink caffeine. When we were finally unstickyed the nice guy took me to Subway for lunch. It was fun. He didn't get my number and I didn't get his. I love those pressure free situations where random paths cross just to put a little bright spot in the day.
By the way, today is 7/11/08 and every year on July 11th, 7-11 gives away free 7.11 oz slurpees as a celebration of the creation of the slurpee. But only between 7am and 11pm. You learn a lot when you hang out at a convenience store. Psh, more like INconvenience store. Hah! Man I'm funny. These things just come to me.
