The Ultimate Bendy-Straw From ????

I mentioned last night that I had received a really awesome gift in the mail. May I now present, the ultimate Bendy-Straw.


Lookit all-o-them pieces you can put together in soooooo many different ways.


Two people can share a drink.


One person can have two drinks!

Even three drinks. It's madness! Madness, I say!


You can even have three people share three drinks...though you might need more bits to prevent head butting.


Or you can keep your drink to yourself and watch it come from two different places and go every which-way before getting to your mouth. This is a tremendous invention.


Now here's the deal. (I'm going to use the words Someone and Somebody a lot here, even where I know exactly who I'm talking about...and also, where I don't know.)

A while back, somebody's husband was sick. I commented that a bendy straw could make everything better. Next thing I know, yet another somebody has sent someone, (not me), some kind of cool bendy straw. And I whined. Then I got sick.

Then, the Ultimate Bendy-Straw in the World showed up on my doorstep...without a hint as to the sender. Now, I have my suspicions about who the someone was who sent it, but I'll be honest; with this bunch of people, it could actually have been someone else. So, I'm going to refrain from guessing because I'm sure to slight someone and we wouldn't want that, now would we?

Would the sender of the awesomest piece of mail I've gotten recently, please stand up and take a bow?

And Thank You!

Yay bendy straw! :)


Now I also want to see someone document their (metal? o.O) bendy straw on their own blog. ;)

'Twasn't me, but I agree: coolest thing EVAR.

It wasn't me, but I think I know what I'm getting John for Valentine's Day this year. He'll love something like that!

Wow. That is SUPER cool. I'm a wee bit jealous, but I'm not going to develop a zombie pancreas just to score one.

Congrats to Someone on winning this week's Loot Contest!

And you can get them from Think Geek? And I've never noticed them???

BTW - They have a special going on through the 29th. $10 off an order of $30 or more if you use the checkout code OOPSIES.

Lovely pictures, btw.

That's just crazy talk.

Cool.

OK, I have to admit that receiving flowers with a prayer from Janiece Murphy was pretty awesome too.

I cannot tell a lie. I didn't do it. 'Cause there's no math on it, ya know. And I'm all about the math.

Now those are cool straws...I might even stop hating bendy straws if we were to use that kind...
Very very cool.....Good job somebody!

neurondoc said...

You're welcome, btw... :-)

Nathan said...

Hah! I knew it!

Thanks Natalie...it really is all sorts of cool.

I always think that the best presents are ones that I really want that the recipient really likes. I'll have to come and try the straws out someday...
