We've all heard the 'your face will freeze like that' or 'gum takes 7 years to digest' fibs. But have you heard these ones?
My best friend from elementary was under the impression that there was a factory cat that peed on top of all the cans of soda (that's why you should really wash every soda can top).
At a fancy wedding, my brother told me that caviar was shaved raspberries. That was a big disappointment.
My elementary best friend also believed that we had bubbles in our skulls and if you hit the right one, you'd die (hence never hit anyone in the head). My favorite is the one her grandma told her about how cars are notorious for having their door handles hook belt loops on pants and dragging people along (that is why you should always walk on the inside of the sidewalk).
My high school best friend wanted to go to Disneyland when she was younger but her parents didn't want to deal with the crowds so they took her on the tram ride around the parking lot and told her that was Disneyland, then they got hamburgers across the street. Funny enough, she had such a good time she asked to go once more (and they duped her again).
What tall tales have you grown up with?
