This lie ruined a lot of pool parties for a lot of kids; it sucked watching your friends splash around in the pool while you watched from the sidelines because your hunger pains led you down a path of wishing and waiting. Fortunately for us, as we grew older we took risks, wised up and realized that our parents had been lying to us; in fact, we now eat while we swim. What a life! Where did this lie stem from? There was probably one kid who threw up in a pool after eating and the rumor spread like wildfire. Special shutout to that one kid who ruined it for all of us.
