When I was very little, was on my way back from McDs with a straw, and several paper packets of various things including salt and sugar (yes, I was a dangerous criminal). I discovered that sugar tasted nice when sucked through a straw but salt did not.
But hang on ... salt and sugar were the same but different, just like the both and the nose were the same but different. Let me tell you, sniffing salt up one nostril is not fun.
when i was little, my mom told me if you ate to much salt, you'd wake up turned into a lamb.
I’m pretty well in “balancing” myself. When I was small, I will eat lots of salt if my sweets (sugar) intake is too much. Coz I used to treat salt and sugar are opposites. Till now, it wont be shock for my mum if she saw me eating fruits with lots of salt, but she wouldn’t know, acctually salt is my main dish, fruits are just the companion. Haha………
When I was little, I always wndered hy my grandfather was badldon the top of his head. I asked my dad and he said, "Its becuase when you cousin was little, he used to sprinkle salt on the top of your grandfathers head." For years I believed that if you put salt on your haed you would go bald.
i used to think that sand was salt so too bad! then i always put it on my egg and i was like, yo, i'm eatin salt! and my mom's like no your not so i'm like dang!
Times were confusing as a child...and fustrating for my parents.
On frequent occasions I would end up putting sugar all over my food, thinking it was salt.
I finally learned the theroy of Food/Salt...until breakfast came...salt on cerael, didn't go down very well.
Salt is bad tasting sugar.
when i was a lil kid i used to think salt was dead lice that people but on there food and i never knew why
I persuaded my older brother that the main ingrediaent in Ice Cream was salt. He believed me, so we added lots of salt to his bowl of ice cream to make it bigger. He wasn't very impressed when he tasted it!
I used to think that if you ate too much salt in on go, you would turn inside out and still be alive in alot of pain....I cant remember who told me that but they suck
My sister and I used to eat alot of salt when we were little. We used to even pour it in our hand and lick it off.
One day while doing this in a fast food restaurant my parents told us a story about a little boy who kept salt next to his bed and licked some off his hand each night before he went to sleep.
Consequently, they told us, he died. We stopped eating so much salt after that...
once during vacation, i started reading the salt package, and when i saw "crystaline table salt" y yelled out loud "no, we can't use this salt, it's for crystaline tables, we're eating on a plastic one"
When I was a kid I read that salt was made from a combination of sodium and cloride. I later discovered that both salt and chloride were actually poisonous (that's what the book said anyway). It didn't take me long to conclude (despite all evidence to the contrary) that salt was completely deadly to eat and so i refused to eat anything that had been anywhere near the stuff. I must have spent ages trying to figure out why people didn't keep dropping down dead around the dinner table - A death I imagined to be particullarly disgusting and gruesome... I mean look what it does to slugs.
I used to believe that salt and pepper were opposites i.e. that salt made a meal more salty and pepper diminished its saltiness.
I used to think that pepper was only used to mark where you'd put the salt.
I used to think that salt and pepper were opposites. If you put too much salt on something adding a little pepper would even it out. Hey, at least it's logical. ; )
