I used to believe,that pickles were made from frogs backs.Both green and both bumpy...Also used to believe that root beer was made from cat tails(the weed in swamps)..
I used to think that a gherkin was some kind of piece of machinery. I wonder where I got THAT from...
I used to believe pickles grew on bushes, like a lot of other vegetables. I was shocked when my Granny Carter said one day she was going to make pickles. "Make pickles!?" I exclaimed. I was so surprised when she explained to me that you make them from cucumbers. SHE was surprised that I was 12, and had eaten pickles all my life and didn't know that..............
My grandmother used to tell my siblings and I that if we drank too much pickle juice our blood would dry up!
I used to believe that pickles grew on two types of trees....dill ones and sweet ones. You picked the pickles put them in water and they made their own juice!
It was not until college that I found out that pickles came from cucumbers. As God as my witness, I thought there was a pickle plant. Thanks Vince.
Hasn't everyone, at some point or another, believed that pickles grew on trees? I sure did.
that pickles were octopus legs
A wally really is a name for a pickled gherkin! That girl wasn't lying and is indeed wiser than you!!
Further to Debbie's misbelief about wally (gherkin) I can confirm that she was right. In certain parts of the country a gherkin is indeed a "wally",as the article below mentions briefly.
And also here
Hope that helps.
Up until about a month ago I thought that the derogatory term "wally" was another word for gherkin!? (I didn't invent that, a girl down my road who was older and I foolishly thought wiser than me told me that).
