It’s nice to see that some things don’t change. It seems that kids these days still believe all of the crazy things that we believed when we were young.
We’re not talking about Santa or the Tooth Fairy here, but those other things you believed…the things that your friends whispered to you during a sleepover. Or that your sadistic big brother told you in an effort to scare the ever loving crap out of you. Or that your parents told you in a misguided attempt to get you to stop doing whatever annoying thing you were bugging them with.
Not that I would know anything about that.
