Family planning

As a child, it was commonplace to hear adults talking and littering their conversations with old wives’ sayings. Many are no longer used and yet some hold little gems of wisdom. One such saying always puzzled me …

‘Never let a man eat liquorice if you wish for a family!’

I am still puzzled by this one … but many a wife has withdrawn this particular sweet from her husband’s grasp in the past so perhaps there is something in it – who knows!!

Not heard that one before - not sure it would be a reliable method of contraception though! lol
