Writer Ariel Dumas asked people what stuff they used to think were the height of luxury. Turns out everyone had similar childhoods. Even Jaegermeister dropped into the conversation, to be met with a pretty solid slam.

    Text - Ariel Dumas Follow @ArielDumas Ok what was the thing you thought was VERY fancy as a kid that turned out not to be? I thought Jägermeister was for sophisticated ladies because my mom sometimes sipped some out of a cordial glass at bedtime.

    Diamond - MehGyver Follow @AndrewNadeau Replying to @ArielDumas Crystal animals. I used to get them for my mom every birthday. I have no idea why. She did not collect them nor show any interest in crystal/collectible figurines. I just thought they were so classy

    Text - TweetleDeeDee Follow @AnHil Replying to @ArielDumas I kid you not: sanitary napkins. I found a box in grammar school, and spent a good long time trying to suss out how they unfolded before I decided that they must be for SUPER FANCY dinners, and SUPER FANCY people would know how to use them.

    Text - |Sarah Shockey Follow @sarahjoyshockey Replying to emollypriddy @ArielDumas I wrote a paper about the Indianapolis Art Museum in 3rd grade where I said "as soon as I got inside I thought, this place must be a MAJOR tourist trap!" because before that all the cool places I wanted to stop at on trips were flippantly referred to as such

    Text - Britt Parbs Follow @beepstweets Replying to @ArielDumas Often when my dad would travel he'd bring me home a purple Crown Royal bag and I'd get so excited. My mom would get very mad and I never understood why until years later. On multiple levels. At the time I was like, why don't you want me to have nice things, mom?!

    Text - Kelly 4 Dayz Follow @kixoxo Replying to @ArielDumas I thought "concubine" was a fancy word for second wife. I mean... technically it is(???), but my mom wasn't super happy that I was going around telling people that she was my dad's concubine.

    Text - mcboatface Follow @miwayha Replying to @ArielDumas Applebee's was the fanciest restaurant in my home town and I didn't really realize non- chain restaurants existed so I thought you spent all of your major life milestones at chain restaurants and I was very out of place at the Ivy League school I lucked myself into at age 19
