It's a few minutes before I clock out. A family of four enters the store and immediately we are assaulted by gleeful screams. The kids—twin boys; around 4, 5—are excited. "SLURPEE!!!" They shout, their little hands holding their little heads. It's cute, no? How we hold our heads like this when we're excited, as if our brains will explode of too much happiness. They bounded up in front of the Slurpee machine and continued screaming there. I admire their parents for allowing Slurpee this early in the morning. The mom pays for the drinks and the screams continue.
