So, Anne's thread about irritating noises got me thinking about this one. My 11 year old is obsessed with water bottle flipping, as are most of the kids I'm surrounded by at school daily. Last night, my 25 year old came over and immediately started water bottle flipping with the 11 year old. If you don't know what this is, it evidently started with this video And even Dude Perfect got in on it. YouTube is filled with water bottle flipping videos! I eat lunch in the cafeteria of the high school where I work, and this year they decided to keep all the students in the cafeteria instead of letting them go to the gym. At just about every single table, there is water bottle flipping going on! At football practice every evening, the kids are doing it on the sidelines! The sound is about to drive me insane thwack, thud, thwack, thud, thwack, thud.... So, DS has been banished to either outside or the other end of the house to practice his skill. According to him, he is a legend at school and must practice...constantly. I read an article this morning in defense of the flipping and it was pretty interesting, but it doesn't make the sound any less irritating!! Anyone else had this new craze hit their household??
