In high school and college, nachos covered in chili and jalapeños were added to my personal menu along with the extra pounds. Life was good.
But then... I grew up. 7-Eleven became more of a novelty. Something my friends and I would grab once or twice a year... usually after playing a few pickup games of basketball at the local park. By the mid 2000's, I stopped going there altogether.
A few years ago, I decided to stop by the one down the street from work to get a cup of coffee. It was a lot cheaper than Starbucks, more convenient, and believe it or not... pretty good. Starbucks took a back seat to 7-Eleven and a new tradition began.
I haven't been back since March when the pandemic started. There's a chance that my school district starts the 2020-21 school year with full distance learning. If that's the case, it might be a few more months until I go back there.
Happy Saturday and sayonara!
