‘Pie hole’, colloquial for one’s mouth, is believed to have evolved in the USA in the 1980s from the British expression ‘cake hole’ (coined in the mid 20th century). Pie hole refers to a mouth, as in: Shut your pie hole or, in this case: Put less in your pie hole.

Slurped: In Practice

Practicing what I preach
A very unconventional post today, but it's never a bad idea to humanise yourself on the world wide web... I think. 

Today is July 11, also known as 7-11 Free Slurpee Day. I love Slurpees! They take me back to when I was a kid. Public transport after school was a hot and sweaty experience during Melbourne summers. 

But I digress, I didn't get them often as a kid and I don't get them often as an adult. But today was hot and humid (weird for San Diego) and I was working opposite a 7-Eleven... you do the math.

I saw several 'dietetic' articles posted today about how 'bad' Slurpees are (eg: https://twitter.com/Fooducate/status/355378635701620737/photo/1). But today, high fructose corn syrup be damned. My once in a while treat was guiltless and delicious.
When I get one, it's the plain, traditional Coca-Cola all the way
Final parting comment... om nom nom.
