and then you’re all:

oorrrr …

roughly A MILLION people have already done big ol’ blog posts (and podcasts and YouTube videos and journal articles, ET CETERA) about straw exercises so why don’t you just quote the heck out of those folks already (which leaves you more time for drinking wine and congratulating yourself on being a freaking genius #isallImsayin)?
