picking up pixy stix
We ordered pizza, and everybody brought snacks and wine and Pepsi, and it was a nice relaxing but competitive evening that went late. I was sipping Pepsi all evening (wasn't in a wine mood), already getting a sugar overload, and Mark, one of the other players, offered me some Pixy Stix, which I had never heard of and of course everybody yelled at me for not knowing what Pixy Stix are. They are these straw-like things with colored sugar in them. I tried one, and then everybody yelled at me for not knowing how to eat them. You open one end and pour the sugar into your mouth, and it took me a while to figure that out and everybody thought I was a moron. This is a tough crowd.
... Just what I needed. More sugar. Straight.
