For many people using a straw is a novelty. Something that livens up a drink in a pub, makes a cocktail more fun, allows you to drink a thick milkshake without getting a moustache. Anyone remember being a kid and purposefully trying to get a shake/Ribena moustache? No. Maybe that’s another thing from my weird childhood. Anyway a straw is primarily an accessory to glam up your beverage.
For some though, including myself, a straw is a necessity. Some people, for whatever reason cannot drink without the aid of a straw.
Many moons ago I too could (just about) drink a tea without a straw. The progression of SMA has meant that since quite a young age I have struggled to hold a cup. To lift it that is.
Sometimes, now, I can’t even lift a cup at all, if it’s not the right cup, or not the right day.
