peter fuller is basically a genius. he taught me, brittney and jenny how to drink a soda and analyze someone else doing the same. there are three ways.
1. fill cup, drink soda. this is the masculine way to down a drink. there is no straw involved. this is how real men drink.
2. fill cup, put straw in, drink soda. this is a feminine way to drink. any man who drinks this way is either gay or has the potential to be. with the straw just floating freely in the liquid, it allows the girl to stir, lift, and sip. it gives the person sipping more freedom to use their hands in the drinking process. this can be used as a flirting device, thus making it a feminine action.
3. fill cup, put lid on, put straw in, drink soda. this one can go either way. this is the method men use if they want use a straw while still appearing masculine. it's all about the stability of the straw. girls can also use this method if not counting on using their straw to flirt. so if you're not sure, use this method.
i hope we all think about how we are using our straws in the future. and watch out because i'll be analyzing your every sip.
