When I was young, my dad had told me that salt was appetite dust, and i believed him for years
It only made matters worse when the MacDonalds staff only had salt and pepper.They were so incompetent.
I was told when I was little that eating too much salt on your food would "dry up your blood".
I used to think that salt and pepper cooled down food. This was evident beacuse people would try their food, say "This is hot. Salt and pepper, please."
If I had a sore throat when I was little my mother would give me warm saltwater to gargle with. Since I normally drank water cold, I assumed that salt made water warm.
My mom told us that if we ate too much salt, we would grow antlers on our head, we were always feeling around for new bumps!
I used to believe that salt was sugar that had gone bad.
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 we put salt on our food because it made you feel more full. so i decided to eat salt straight from the shaker into my mouth. once i found out the truth, i decided to just do it anyway coz by then i was addicted to it...
When I was little I thought salt and pepper were opposites- as in, for every time someone salted something, it canceled out the pepper taste. I pictured someone saying "this is too salty!" and therefore putting more pepper on it. I was very confused for a very long time when my dad would put both on his food at the same time. It just seemed so pointless!
I used to think that a somersault was a "summersalt" and that it was a type of salt only available in the summer.
I believed that salt and pepper cancelled each other out. So if you had put too much salt in your food, you could simply add pepper to take away the saltiness.
my cousins would always eat sugar straight from the sugar bowl. i decided to try it, so i grabbed what i thought was a sugar container and really grabbed a salt container. i tasted it, and i decided i would eat straight salt. one day my mom told me i would have really high bloodpressure if i didnt stop, and told me that high blood pressure means that you heart has to work really hard to pump blood. i decided that i would give my heart a "workout" by eating more salt. i eat straight salt to this day, and now im 22.
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 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, I used to believe that salt could absorb water (because eating salt always made me thirsty I suppose). So, I decided to do a little experiment. I took a plastic cup and filled it with water and salt. I left it in one of my desk drawers that I didn't use and forgot about it for years! When I moved, I found it and, alas, the water was not gone. To this day, if you open that drawer, you will smell salt!
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!
