Drinking like a New Yorker

“It’s official: for the very first time in my life, I just used a straw to sip soda from a bottle. Previously, whenever I was given a straw, I’d discard it. Today, the bottle I purchased smelled so rancid and disgusting (while the contents tasted perfectly fine), I decided to take the plunge. Midwesterners drink their pop right out of a dirty can. New Yorkers sip with a straw. After 2 years, I’ve become a convert” – Aaron / 601am.com.

I made fun of Mike the first time I saw him drink a coke with a straw, but he quickly impressed upon me the importance of doing so. Which I will do, as soon as I get over the cost of buying a can of coke in this city.
