The Secret Recipe
Kids are like little scientists mixing together concoctions made from ingredients found in their backyard. For some, it was a kind of witches’ brew; for others, it was “dinner” in their game of House. u/nutriturtle’s cousin was just plain mean and dangerous, convincing the Redditor they had to drink up for real or be left outside.
While most kids would immediately tattle on someone for making them drink a mystery mix of potentially hazardous material and creepy crawlies, u/Nutriturtle kept it a secret. Maybe they had the type of parents who put both the tattler and the tattlee in time out and didn’t want to risk it.
