I find myself in need of drinking straws a lot, because Mini Me has a hard time drinking out of to-go cups or restaurant glasses with a regular straw. She has to hold the cup in her lap and then stretch her little neck up just to get her mouth on top of the tall straw. Our friend, Rita, recently saw this in action while we were in Sanibel and came to my rescue with a purse full of bendy straws. I had never thought to carry them with me before, but I vowed to pick some up the next time I went shopping.
Once I grabbed a bag of straws at the store, I couldn’t decide how I should carry them around in my purse so that they didn’t get all gross. A little bit of walking up and down the aisles led me to the perfect solution… a toothbrush holder! The bendy straws fit so perfectly into the toothbrush holder that you’d think it was made for them. I tossed one in my purse, one in my car, and one in McGeeky’s car. Now we won’t have any more spilled cups from giant straws!
