My mom always peels broccoli and cuts the bottom of a cucumber off before rubbing it on the end of itself to draw out the sap. I was in my mid-20s before I learned many other people do not do either of these things.

My family has a Generalissimo Francisco Franco Christmas ornament, and every year when we trim the tree, whoever unpacks that ornament yells “The Chubby Guy!” and puts it on the tree. We also play Twisted Christmas albums and I legit don’t know the real words to some carols.

We asked our mom about why she was lying to us all this time and she said it wasn’t a lie it was 100% the truth and she knew it was the truth because her mother said so and then we called our grandmother who confirmed yes, it was 100% a lie to get her kids to drink their milk.

They had a term called a “rice attack”: when you eat rice so fast you have trouble breathing a little because you inhale some of it. No idea this wasn’t a real illness until I mentioned it in the dining hall in college.

when my sister and I couldn’t sleep, my father would make us “special banana drinks” and we would fall asleep soon after. We liked them so much that sometimes we would fake not being able to sleep to get them.
They were banana daiquiris, and not virgin ones.
