Memoirs of a Straw

I was eating dinner at one of my favorite local restuarants. I had a wonderful fried walleye sandwich and some tasty waffle fries to eat in front of me. To drink, I had some ice cold Cherry Pepsi Soda (Yes, it's soda - see link). In my mind, there is no better way to drink a soda then with a straw. Which most of the time is no big deal. But once in a while I seem to loose all hand eye coordination with the process of drinking from a straw. This was one of those times.
So I went to grab my half full glass (gotta think positive) of soda. As I was bringing the glass towards my mouth the straw went straight into my nose. OOOPS! (Now I realize I have a big nose, but this just shouldn't happen.) My cat-like reflexes snatched the straw out of my nose. My first thought was.... Did anybody see? I paused to look around to see if anybody was laughing. I think I made it. I was in the clear. Now, should I drink from the straw even though it was in my nose? If I didn't drink from the straw again it would appear strange. So, to save face I stuck the snot infested straw in my mouth and took up a slurp of soda.

Has this ever happened to you?

It's as bad as pulling out a cigarette, putting it in your mouth, lighting it, and suddenly realizing you've lit up the butt. Instead of having a nicely glowing ember at the end of your stick it's on fire, and you look around the bar to see if any of the girls you were eye-flirting with are still watching you.

I feel your pain. This has happened to me as well.
