A Post Falls police officer warned his dispatcher about a half hour ago that she might get a call re: the packed house at the local 7-Eleven. Seems this is the 9th annual “7-Eleven Day,” marking the chain's 84th birthday. Which means Slurpees are on the house. The Christian Science Monitor reports that 7-Eleven plans to give away 5 million free Slurpess to customers today. Each free drink will come in a 7.11-oz. cup. Slurpee milestones listed on the chain's website include the coining of the name “Slurpee” in 1967 by a 7-Eleven agency director, the introduction of Slurpee lip balm in 1998, and the invention of an edible Slurpee straw in 2004.

Question: When did you last drink a Slurpee?
