If you told me you were going to stop at a quickie, I might be looking at you with my mouth hanging open. I would use the term quickie for an activity between two adults...lol

I call all convenience stores 7-11's

Quoting sweetiebell:

Kleenex, windex, bandaid, jello
And we call convenient stores quickies

In the land of Lincoln (Illinois), they say My in front of brand names. My Foldgers, My Delmonte. If it's store brand, they say the store name in front - Kroger's mushroom soup, Wal-mart hotdogs. If you get My recipe, it was off the brand name package.

hahaha! I'm a Tupperware consultant, so all my friends get flustered when they refer to their disposible plastic storage containers as "Tupperware."  

I really don't get on 'em for it, but I might give them a little bit of stink eye for it. :)
