Ring. Click. "Hey you, what's up?"
"Tell me if I'm crazy. We were getting slurpees, and all they had were the flat tops like you put on a soda cup."
"You get less slurpee that way you know."
"Exactly! That's what I told the lady, and she says 'no you don't, because you only fill it to the top of the cup.'"
"But it fizzes. That's what the bubble top is for."
"That's what I said! You get, like, 30 percent less slurpee without the round top!"
"Yeah, it's a total rip-off, and anybody who would deny it is a big fat liar."
"You're quite welcome."
"I love you."
"I love you too."

Sometimes, acknowledging the little things is a big thing...

Dude! I fill the cup, put the bubble lid on, and use the hole at the top to add more slurpee until it's gooing out, then stick my mouth down and slurp up the overflow, which inevitably leads to a void inside the top again, so I have to add more...you see what's going on here. I usually get three or four good slurps before I have to give up since the clerk's burning gaze disrupts my concentration.

Perhaps it's because our lockers were next to each other during track season, but that image gives me a funny climbing-the-rope-in-gym-class feeling.

Yep. Dome lids rock. :)
So do sour apple icees.

Isn't so nice when you and that special someone can see eye to eye -- slurpee to slurpee -- on things, isn't it?

Oops -- didn't edit my words. It SHOULD HAVE SAID:

I put the bubble lid on the cup first and then fill the cub through the hole in the top. This way I can fill it right to the top, with a little bit of Slurpee overflowing. Not having the dome lid is a total ripoff - I agree!
You two are very cute.
