Peeing in the road
We were joking around at work today, teasing one of my co-workers that she has pinkeye. (She really doesn’t.) Of course, I immediately heard my grandmother’s voice in my head saying “You’ll get a stye in your eye if you pee in the road!” I’ve actually mentioned that to Rodd a couple times in the past, but it appears to have been a uniquely Midwestern superstition. Have you ever heard it? I know I’m not the only one; there are a ton of Google results. What a funny thing, huh?
