How To: Whistle with your Fingers

This bit of essential man knowledge made The To-Do List this month, and thanks to some help from Birchbox Editor Lorelei (and a whole lot of paper towels to wipe the slobber from our fingers) we finally nailed it. The technique is simple, but it’ll take some practice. Here’s how to do it.

1. Form an 'A' shape with your index and middle fingers.
2. Draw back your lips to cover your teeth.
3. Push the tip of your tongue back with your fingers.
4. Close your mouth around your fingers, forming a seal, and blow the hole between your middle fingers.
5. Practice, practice, practice. Eventually you can graduate to the one-handed technique to and rival that cool uncle of yours who could always hail a taxi or score a hot dog from 100 yards away.
