Straw Game

I love to play the straw game.

I am immediately 8 years old again.

I talk those around me into participating simply because there is no way to hide the ridiculous excitement and immaturity I have for this game.  A couple of weeks ago I was at dinner with friends and, upon hearing my name, I turned to look.  Three of them were holding their straw wrappers in position, waiting for me to join in the game.

The rules?
1. Tie a straw wrapper in a loose knot
2. Rapidly pull on both ends of the wrapper
3. If the knot comes undone, someone is thinking about you. If the knot stays in, no one is thinking about you.
4. Giggles and delight ensue, even if you lose - it is just fun!
