First off 195 bucks for a straw
I would feel terrible spending that much on something that wasnt of any use an wasnt any type of jewlrey or etc. Makes no sence to me. Plus I would feel silly buying it for someone even IF it was something they REALLY wanted.
Second..those straws are cool! I have monkeys and a bunch of those cool straws I just may have to make some of those for my kids or with my girlscout troop.
