when you run out

i guess all the white hens are going to turn into 7-elevens now. i haven’t seen the change yet, but i’ve seen signs telling of the change to come. i don’t know why that troubles me in any way other than i think it’s good to have competition and when i was growing up i was more familiar with white hen in wisconsin. only for the mere fact i never really saw 7-elevens and that we had white hen commercials. i guess 7-elevens were what i saw in movies (and i knew they were the slurpee people), but it was the white hen that ran radio ads on the stations i was listening to.
