No, they’re not the same as urban legends. But they’re myths in every sense. Here’s my personal list of a handful of urban myths that I got to bust:
- You can’t live alone in Manila when you’re just 16.
- You can’t snag a boyfriend when you’re sporting a teenage boy’s haircut.
- You can’t assemble a heavy cabinet without the help of a man.
- You can’t find out what’s on other people’s minds unless you’re telepathic.
- You can’t build a website on your own unless you went to school for it.
