Kids really say (and believe) the darndest things. As a gullible kid, a friend once told me that she and her father were addicted to shawarma. She said there was nicotine in the meat and that the two of them absolutely had to get their fix daily or they'd become cranky jerks. I believed this for at least a year until my own family took me for some tasty sandwiches.
