吹瓶 chui1ping2 (v. drink from the bottle)

Posted by bodawei December 19, 2010 in the Group General Discussion.

Heard this one 吹瓶 chuīpíng (v. drink from the bottle) last night.  No, we weren't drinking from the bottle, and I'm not suggesting that any ChinesePod poddies would do such a thing.  But it may come in handy, at least when being instructed (as we were last night) to 别吹瓶! 

I love the colourful use of 吹瓶 chuī (v. blow, puff) in this context - like sucking on a bottle, and puffing on a ciggie (at the same time) create a similar linguistic response.
