Introduction: The Epileptically Friendly Reusable Cup Straw
So here's the skinny of things.
The other night I was drinking using my favorite cup with the hard plastic straw and had a seizure and bit right through the straw; chipped a tooth a bit. When I came to the cup didn't spill but I was on physical pain and my straw was torn to turds.
Then I thought of a way to recover the use of my cup and this is how to do and hopefully this will help someone.
- Broken straw
- Replacement toss-away straw (from any SBUX location, grab the large one)
Step 1: Remove Rubber Stopper-thingumabob
So you're gonna pull off the rubber stopper, it rolls off pretty easily.
You could also use a CLEAN rubberband. If you break the straw, just grab another one (they're free!)
Step 2: Add the Old Rubber Stopper to New Straw
Pinch the top of the replacement straw to make it easier to slip over the old rubber stopper
Step 3: BAZZZZZZZINGA!
There ya go, all done!
