Hank: (bursting into the kitchen) MOM!
Hank: I was just watching this YouTube video on common medical myths and did you know that gum digests like everything else in your stomach?
Hank: Like, gum doesn’t even take more time than normal food to digest!
Hank: Isn’t that crazy! Like, you totally didn’t know that.
Me: Um… yah. So, confession time!
Me: Yah, so like I totally did always know that.
Me: Yah, so that is a common urban legend that parents tell kids so that they never get into the habit of swallowing gum. (bracing myself for impact)
Hank: (aghast) How dare you.
Hank: Now, I don’t even want to tell you about how cracking your knuckles doesn’t lead to arthritis.
Me: Well, I…
Hank: Nope, I’m done. You can’t know everything. Gotta go. Love you, bye.
