1. If you have a cold, you blame it on the pineapple.
Sickness is a form of gossip that Nicaraguans love to indulge in. When someone gets the flu, you can spend hours analyzing how he got it. Likely culprits are showering too late at night or too soon after doing sports, walking barefoot, getting wet, or eating something cold too late at night or too soon after eating something hot. But secretly, everybody knows that it was probably the pineapple you ate before going to bed.
