The worst part is that I am gradually finding out other stupid things he told me that seem perfectly rational. Grrr...
    Omg that is awesome! LOL

      My mom just told me this same thing about her DH the other day. Funny.

      Hmmm, I know I have some! I just can't remember what they are.

        I still know a ton of people that do this! I get lots of emails from friends that say this...too funny. It must be pretty common :)

          Haha! That is too funny! All of the mom's (about 6 of them) told my whole neighborhood growing up that if you were bad that a bus of nuns would come take you to the "parental home" where all of the bad kids went... they said it was a building across town, which we later learned was the Catholic girls High School!!! The kids on my street, who are now in their twenties, still give the moms a hard time about this!!!

            My mom used to tell me that the little coin operated rides in the malls only worked if every seat on the ride was filled! I was an only child so no mall rides for me :)

            you know how when you are driving down a long straight highway where you can see in front for miles and way ahead you can see like a mirage or something where the pavement meets the horizon? my dad told me it was called cow water (no clue why) and ever since i always thought that.

            i didnt find out till our road trip to chicago this past winter that it is totally not called that. doug about peed his pants laughing at me.

              Up until I was a teenager I thought it was called girl cheese instead of grilled cheese. And up until I met my FI I said "I don't take anything for GRANITE, and he informed me that it's GRANTED. *Here's your sign* LOLOLOL

                    One day I was driving along with my two kids in the back seat of the car. I guess they were around 8 & 10. The older one, in an attempt to "educate" the younger one, says "You know that doctors drink pee". My ears are alerted and I ask her why she thinks that. She says "why else do they collect it in cups?" :)

                    Good job I caught that one before she took it into adulthood!
