    Do you still use straws???

    My friend just said only 5 year olds use straws. I'm using a straw to drink my coke! Straws are awesome in my opinion, how about you?

    I bet a lot of people use straws! Seriously, i don't like my teeth hitting the ice because it gets cold. Ok that was possibly one of the most babyish things i've ever said in my life. My god what am i coming to. Straws rules, that's it.

    I only use straws when I get fast food and it's the only way to get the drink out of the cup without taking the lid off, which would make the cup too flimsy and prone to spilling. Besides, with fast food, they always put too much ice in the drink so you end up with a mouth full of ice cubes if you try sipping without a straw. The rest of the time, no straws. I don't think it's childish or anything though. If someone liked a LOT of ice in their drinks, they'd probably need it. Just don't use a straw at a fancy dinner party. :biggrin:

    A straw to drink. That plastic pipe thing you use to drink.

    I'm with Moonbear on this one.

    Only at fast food restaurants.

    It's got to be ice cold. And only a certain brand of mountain water the the Evo Child bought me, it was heavenly.

    :cry: And I was going to try to go to sleep early tonight, but now I'm afraid to miss out on anything in my short time left.

    (Actually, I do need to get to sleep...I have to have enough rest to be VERY patient teaching someone how to do some stuff tomorrow, because I know it's going to try my patience greatly.)

    I drink from straws when I have a drink at a bar, unless it's a beer or martini ofcourse. Other than that I don't really ever use straws. Most things I drink straight out of the container they came in.
