Lies Your Parents Told You

It's 1984 and I'm 10 years old. Ski Sunday is on the telly, and I ask my dad why onlookers are banging cowbells and shouting every time a contestant skis past.

He says,

"it's so that blind skiers can keep away from the sides".


Beat That!!

My grandads birthday was on Christmas day. So he used to tell me he was born in the next cot to Jesus.

Imagine my horror when it was his 80th party and I realised jesus was 1982.

I was told by my parents that my uncle lived with his "mate" for many years, only to realise when I was in my teens that it was actually his boyfriend!
