Some kids I used to babysit taught me this trick one time when we were eating out, and I’ve been having fun with it ever since.
Well, not too much fun because of that whole issue of straws contributing to the devastation of the natural environment. Just a little fun, now and then. But don’t worry: I’m striving to be more of a tree-hugger, and I’ll never be brazen enough to be a litterbug. I have some morals, even if I do like to play with straws and straw wrappers on occasion.
