When I was little, my older sister Jennifer told me that the little strings on bananas were poisonous. I still won't eat them.
She also told me that the roach spray that my mom kept under the cabinet in an unmarked spray bottle was simply milk and water mixed together. I had a babysitter once give me milk with ice in it, and I was fairly convinced she was trying to kill me.
My dad told me that if I swallowed gum, I'd fart bubbles. I don't know why he thought that'd deter me. I bought Bubble Yum solely for experimental purposes after that.
When I moved to New Orleans at the age of 18, my dad told me that the living statues would move very, very, very slowly, so when you came back a couple of hours later they'd be in a different position. Seemed plausible. I didn't realize till nearly a year later that he was totally full of crap.
Have you ever messed with someone and had them convinced of something totally inconceivable? Have you ever been messed with?
Have you ever messed with me?
