Sometimes, we tell our kids things for the sake of humor or because we don’t know. It’s kind of fun to re-imagine things and tell a story to our kids. But I’ve had it backfire on me. My brother, for example, tells me that I told him a story growing up about mayonnaise. Apparently, and these claims are alleged, I told him that mayonnaise came from whale sperm.
Now, I’ve never told my 5-year-old where mayonnaise comes from but I have invented fun ideas about how the world works. Hopefully, none that will prevent him from eating or doing things later. Sorry, bro!
