Last week I came to realize something quite strange. I can’t whistle anymore. I remember being a little kid and trying to learn all the different ways to whistle and the one way that I always thought was really cool was the one where you put two fingers in you mouth to produce a piercing whistle that conjured up images of New York boys alerting their neighborhood of infiltrators. I tried and tried and never had any luck. I Always sounded more like an unintentional breath across a glass coke bottle.The only way I was able to whistle was by flicking my tongue to the roof of my mouth and pushing the air between the gap in my two front teeth. I could whistle pretty loud but had almost not control over the tone. Now that the Invisalign has remove the gap I am going to have to learn to whistle all over again and in a new way.

Insert joke about sucking at blowing here->

Man, you took our cheap shot for us.

I've never, ever been able to whistle that way, either.

This is why Barbara Streisand refused to get a nose job.

I actually was not able to whistle until just this past year.

I had always hated that bloody famous line of "just put your lips together, and blow" bullshit. I would do so all the time and nothing would ever happen!

And then, one fateful day this past year, I put my lips together, blew, and voilá! I whistled!

Ever since then I whistle along to my background iTunes music all the time lol
