I saw a commercial last night that I found so funny, because it reminded me so much of me when I was younger. I don't know what product they were advertising, but it shows a young boy jumping in the swimming pool right after eating and him getting in trouble. It reminded me of all those old wives' tales that our parents told us to keep us in line - my favorite (the one I hated the most) was, of course, "You can't go swimming for 30 minutes after eating". Another, not really an old wives' tale, but more of a country saying - whenever I was hurting or had a headache or such, my mom would tell me, "Don't worry, it's just growing pains". I was in my late teens before I realized that your body growing doesn't actually make it hurt. Anybody else have some good ones?
