t all started when author and editor Kristen Mulrooney tweeted: “One of the perks of marriage is having someone around to let you know which normal things from your childhood were actually very very weird.” It really resonated with people, and they responded sharing things they thought was “normal” during their childhood that their spouse (or someone else) pointed out wasn’t.
- “I grew up putting apple sauce in my Kraft mac and cheese and I thought my boyfriend was going to call the authorities on me.”
- “My mom always referred to arming the car alarm as ‘chirping.’ Like ‘don’t forget to chirp the car.’ I’ve been informed this has never been said before by anyone else.”
- “We always had ketchup on the table for taco night. Ketchup and no salsa. Also one of my chores was to ‘make a gallon of milk’ every night (from powder).”
- “My family had a fourth meal before bed, a substantial bed time snack called Night Lunch, the look my wife gave me the first time I said that out loud …. #priceless.”
- “My girlfriend’s family puts chunks of ham in their chili recipe. I have told her repeatedly that this is an abomination that shows up nowhere else on earth, but she insists that it’s a normal thing to do.”
- “My husband didn’t think it was weird that his family would bring a pot of spaghetti to the drive in as a movie snack.”
