Druchii normally carry on their persons several drinking straws as they are often necessary to imbibe beverages from their impractical cups

>the oldest drinking straw is sumerian and 5000 years old
Huh. They seem like a recent invention. How come you never see straws in fantasy?

Because people think it's modern in spite of it's history.

See also: fast food.

They're masters of pouring drinks into their mouths without spilling a drop. Straws are for plebs.

I thought they just made slaves sip from the cups and then have them spit into their mouths.

I find a special level of comfort in this. LIterally, the more things change the more they stay the same. I can't begin to understand how someone could be mortified by this fact.

So in general poor people in Roman cities wouldn't have a hearth or a range in the way that a modern person would think of.
At most many would have a small fire on a bed of sand for heating, which was less important in the Med, when compared to say anywhere colder. They were also quite rightly terrified of fire ripping through their densly packed extrmely flammable Insula
If you ever get a chance to look around a roman building, the lack of fireplaces and chmneys is the biggest difference between anything that has been built since~the 17th century (until modern electrical heating made lack of fire practical again)

For everyday cooking you would go to the local eatery, buy your daily bread from the baker etc. These would often be on the block or in the ground floor of the same building.

Reading about daily life in ancient Rome, it's surprising to see how many modern things had equivalents dating all the way back then, even if the technology was different.
Ancient Romans already had fast food, lowbrow comedy shows, multi-storey buildings with tenement housing, rude bathroom graffiti, and people posting useless bits of info on public messageboards.
