Thank Heaven, For 7-11

Some of you may know I have a thing for 7-11, especially 7-11 in other countries. And I recently learned some of you think that's weird. Especially when I told them I went to TJ for 7-11. Well it's because I have a thing for 7-11, and secondly, I didn't get to hit up 7-11 when I was in Playa Del Carmen. Anyways, 7-11 is fun!! Full of snacks! Late night munchies started all this. When I first moved to Mira Mesa my brother and I would go to 7-11 often, especially late at night since it was right down the street. Then I learned 7-11 in Hawaii had different things in it. Hawaiian food and snacks ! Then 7-11 Japan really started up my addiction, with their 5 star service and quality food, 7-11 Japan is my favorite so far. This past Saturday my brother and I met up with a friend on the other side of the boarder, Sonia. She picked us up from the bridge and took us straight to 7-11. I went kinda nuts, there was a lot of Mexican snacks and exclusive sodas and chips! Started to grab a bunch of random shit and their 7-11 brand snacks exclusively released in Mexico. Sonia helped out by pointing out some of her favorite childhood snacks which I grabbed. And it only cost me $8 USD for all the snacks and a Pepsi. Soon after leaving 7-11 we learned we got a flat. Sonia hit a giant pot hole on the way to pick us up and it damaged the wheels. Pot holes in TJ is very dangerous guys! So we stopped by a tire shop and just had it switched out with the spare. Why didn't we do it ourselves? Well we didn't know what caused the air leak at first, thought we can just patch it up. Then we learned it was a damaged wheel, so there you go. 

Ah, totally remember riding in the back of the truck when I was a kid myself. This touched that part of my memory.

While we waited for the tire service to complete we walked the streets of Downtown TJ to a coffee shop. 

Front right was getting flat, made it to the shop just in time.
