Another birthday. This time my childhood neighbor, that I've written about coming by before with her mom.. She's 23 today. It's also National Chocolate Covered Cherry Day. Not my kind of day, but my boyfriend would sure love it. National Fruitcake Toss Day. I wouldn't even make it or buy it in order to have it around to toss it. National Drinking Straw Day. At home I only use straws for chocolate milk and shakes, but always use them when out. So I like this day.

I love chocolate covered cherries! I could just sit and eat them all day long! I'm like you, whenever I buy drinks when I am out and about, I have to drink them through a straw.

I do not like chocolate covered cherries, but my husband does. I enjoy using a straw every now and then too.

I'm a no-go for everything except for the straws. I have to insist on a straw when I am out somewhere and having a drink, even if its just water.

I like chocolate covered cherries so that is a good one. I use drinking straws for everything that I drink.

It has been so long since I had a chocolate covered cherry I don't remember if I like them or not? I never had the desire to eat fruit cake so I will toss one if I get one. I always drink out of straws when I have to drink out as I do not want to put my lips where strangers lips have been! happy belated birthday to your former neighbor!

Thats why I use straws too. Though, if cups are dirty at the rim then they probably are in the cup where the drink itself is too.. yuck. Plus the utensils

@Courtlynn now i don't want to drink even out of straws! Luckily, the most cups I drink from when out are cardboard ones in fast places which I frequent with my sister! So don't have to worry about that!

My GI doctor recommends that I use a straw, especially with soda, because it reduces the speed at which liquid gets into the body (and, with it, air, which can upset the digestive apple cart). I don’t like being miserable so I do what he says. (Well, that’s not completely true: he tells me to stay away from Chuy’s but I still eat there!)

Interesting..Yes, part of the fun of having drinks out is drinking them through a straw.
