The week between the Fourth of July and July 11 should be known as Fourth of July Week. Every other holiday extends its reach beyond its borders (seriously, Hobby Lobby was putting out Christmas stuff last week), so why shouldn’t this one?
The week culminates, of course, with free Slurpees today at 7-Eleven stores around this great nation of ours, including the seven or eight that are within spitting distance of my house (they say location is everything). New today? A Cap’n Crunch Berries-flavored Slurpee. Yes, Cap’n Crunch.
Heaven can wait.
