So a while back I saw a skit by the comedian Demetri Martin about straws and thought to myself that he was so right. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I will go ahead and wait for you to watch the video below first……. I’m assuming you have watched the clip, so I will continue. Not only do straws have the power to make you look stupid when you lose eye contact, they have the power to injure.
Yesterday I went to lunch with my fiance to Carl’s Jr. and we both were eating and talking about our day. Then, out of nowhere, it happened… She lost eye contact with her straw. She missed her whole mouth completely and jabbed the space between her upper lip and nose. I personally thought it was about to go up her nose and started laughing. I laughed not because I don’t love her, but because she tried sooo hard to play it off, and me laughing didn’t help… It only made things funnier (for me).
So what’s the point of all this? I say we should get rid of straws all together. They are dangerous, deceitful, and harmful to the environment. If President Obama wants to get reelected, he should make this part of his agenda.
P.S. - If you’re reading this Babe, I love You. :)
