It’s been sweeping our landscape like a revolution. Strange things are afoot. Circle K is now officially here. They have been taking over corner store locations previously occupied by Mac’s (a maybe what was once a locally owned chain that older people still call Mac’s Milk. I guess it was started by a guy named Mac, and at one point in time, the corner store was a place to get basic groceries. Like milk. NOT ANY MORE!)
I’ve never lived anywhere where Circle K is a thing. I don’t know if they ever existed beyond San Dimas, CA until today. Most people around here don’t know anything about Circle K either, other than it being the place where Bill and Ted hung out and got into the phone booth time machine. I always had a soft spot for it thanks to it’s role in the movie.
The local rollout is perfectly timed to match the news that Bill & Ted 3 is going to be in theaters soon! The movie and the store will sweep the nation at the same time!
I had a vision/dream that maybe Circle K would be an upgrade over the old Mac’s, that maybe it would be full of real food; local, organic, fruits and vegetables, meat and cheese and basic ingredients. Stuff you’d go there to buy, and eat. The sign looks clean and fresh. Maybe it’s like the Whole Foods of corner stores? I went in to check it out. Wouldn’t that be the appropriate thing to be doing in 2018?
IT WAS NOTHING LIKE THAT! IT’S EXACTLY THE SAME CRAP YOU FIND IN THE MAC’S THAT IT REPLACED, OR 7-11, OR WHATEVER CONVENIENCE STORE YOU GO TO!
Today is not that day! Today is still stuck in 1989, when we didn’t have to care about anything and life was awesome!
100% junk food. Chips, candy bars, soda pops, coffees, slurpees, hot dogs, and so on! 100% bad. 0% good. Literally, it might as well be empty. (In fact, it would be better, so at least you had low expectations.) How is this even possible? How can a business exist without one good thing you’d actually want to put into your body? SOMEBODY EXPLAIN THIS TO ME!
At the very least, we know the Wyld Stallyns still have some work to do!
THEY WILL SAVE US ALL!
