93/272

When I was a child, and not feeling well, my mom had a secret medicine. A “sippy cup,” filled with juice or coke (dependant upon the illness) with a “bendy straw.” The bendy straw had magic powers! Without having to raise my head, the straw helped put out the fire in my throat with an icy cold goodness. To this day, when not feeling well, I still must have a bendy straw. Oh, the healing power it has!

I love this shot! Without reading your words, I'd thought it was some funky pink thing floating somewhere in outer space!

Gotta love the special magic a bendy straw brings. :)

Such a cool picture! And too funny~ I am the same way- I have an *old* Hershey cup that I must use (with a bendy straw in it) when I get sick~ they must have healing powers!

Such a fun shot. It's funny how we associate things, I hope I do things consistently for my boys to remember one day. :)

Beautiful focus and color!

LOL! I can relate to this! I remember with fondness the noisy benders of when I was little. I love them still, and prefer them over dumb, non-bendy straws. Great post. :D
