Here is another superstition that I was made aware of by one of my lovely isiXhosa Friends:
Friend: Sissie, did you know that Coke is very bad for you. [very wide-eyed]
Me: Yes, it is very unhealthy- it makes you gain weight and can cause ulcers.
Friend: Not just that sissie! [voice lowers to a whisper] It will make ladies wet all day long.
Friend: Yes, down there [pointing to her vagina]
