    Addicting Habit When Drinking...

    I can tie the stem of a cherry into a knot anytime I have a cherry  stem handy! Although if I am drinking and happen to have a mixed drink that's when it begins, you have people ask you to do it , wanna watch you do it and then they start giving you their stems to tie...

    Such a weird custom...And I have to wonder who started this...But since maybe junior high, people have tried to impress their friends with this ability.I've honed my talents to the point where most of the time, I can get two knots in a stem.But I don't really see what this proves...

    "I Can Tie the Stem of a Cherry Into a Knot With My Tongue"

    It is one of  the many talents that I have. It took me all about 4 minutes to do it the 1st time. I was having a race against my girlfriend to see who could do it faster, I beat her and as my award, She had to kiss me. It was amazing!

    I Can Indeed.

    Before I moved out of Kentucky, a few co-worker ladies and I would go out for drinks from time to time. One of us had a drink with a cherry in it, and so the question came up as to whether any of us could. A bowl of cherries was requested, and we all gave it a try. I was the...

    Is This a Good Thing Or Bad Thing???

    I mean other than being a parlor trick I don't see why it's important to see whether or not you can...  I can do it, but I don't see the purpose...

    I found this out while I was working at a bowling alley... My best friend worked there, too, and so did the guy who eventually became my boyfriend. (He's now an ex) I can't even remember why we had cherries there, LOL, for the life of me, but... We had a contest to see who could...

    Ahhh Perkins...

    I remember learning how to tie the cherry stem. It was back in the good ol' days when me and my "gothier than thou" boyfriend would sneak out at say... 2 am and sit at Perkins all night drinking sodas and talking with whoever happened to stop by. It was a great time...

    Cherry Stems

    Used to Take Me a Minute At First

    Nowadays I can do it quickly without people even noticing I'm up to anything. Being a guy though it seems to not be as much of a big deal, similar to me not having a gag reflex, it's just like "okay, so what?" One thing I do wonder though...if I ever decide to split my...

    Still Can

    When I saw this experience it brought me back to the days of hanging out in clubs, drinking, and dancing. My girlfriends and I would love to hang out at the bar and practice our craft.  Needless to say, we didn't need to buy many of our own drinks.  LOL I was...

    A Noble Accomplishment...

    ...from a former pub hopper. A very close female friend of mine taught me this cheesy trick when I was a teenager. I'm not sure how helpful it has been, but it seems to have come in handy from time to time.
