Ode To A Straw
I love using straws! It keeps my teeth from hurting from cold liquids. The iced tea comes up, goes to the back of my mouth, where I taste and savor it before swallowing.
I don’t like drinking my iced tea without a straw or a travel mug (sippy cups for adults). The likelihood of sloshing it down my front is high and I’ve ruined way too many tops because I couldn’t get the tea stains back out again. If I can’t use a straw, I’d rather just drink water.
Ted’s Montana Grill uses an environmentally friendly paper straw. They’re actually very cool, but I don’t like the mouth feel of them. I prefer the sensation and slippery feel of a plastic one.
This is today’s post for the 2012 River of Stones Challenge to notice the small things in life.
Interested in learning to make sun tea? I wrote about it last spring.
Have you checked out KittyHere’s blog? She has several 52 week ideas. The 52 Thoughtful Thursdays appeals to me and I think I’ll be doing it with her.
My other blog, A Daily Life, posted a list of daily / weekly sources of prompts to help on those days that the ideas are dry.

I enjoyed checking out the website for Ted’s Montana Grill. There are so many chains that people take for granted that I have not heard of because they have not expanded this far into the rural northeast.
That’s why I put the link in. We don’t have one here in central Virginia either – the one I go to is near my daughter’s house. There’s probably one in Massachusetts the next time you go back there.
