I guess it's my suburban upbringing, that I thought I was running away from, 20 yrs ago, when I got on the bus to NYC. But, then 7 11 s popped up....along with the Kmart, the Olive Garden, and the wax museum! Help!! The suburbs found me!!
"Oh thank heaven for 7 11". Somehow 7 11 is reassuring, cheap, and like coming home for a munchie attack on that long road trip.
