Her age could really factor into this. A 7 year saying that would't be that weird, but if your sister is 20 or so, there are some issues.

Depending on the parent #6, 7 could possibly be old enough to be *allowed* to make herbal tea

I think she was older considering she was making her own tea and it wouldn't be an FML otherwise.

More facts! Very roughly - the Old Germanic word 'hoenig' probably came from a Proto-Indo-European word that also meant yellow, and has cousins in Welsh ('canecon', gold) and Sanskrit (can't remember). The word 'mead', the drink made from honey, comes from the Proto-Indo-European *medhu. Honey is miel in French, mil in Irish, mel in Welsh, similar in many others. Languages are so cool.

Not strictly true. It depends on how often one urinates as opposed to fluid intake. the less you urinate, the more concentrated it becomes.

I was going to say that ! English is a Germanic language, not a Latin one, in a language that has Latin roots, for example French, we say "miel", which comes from "Mel" in Latin, which itself originated from the common indo-European and Ancient Greek

Ah, right. Of course. All dumb women are blondes. When I have a stupid moment or a brain fart, it must be the recessive blonde genes in me acting up.

Wasn't it Dan Quayle who said he wished he'd learned Latin in school so that he could speak to the "Latin Americans". And he was vice-president.

That was a joke about Dan Quayle, made by a Congressman after a meeting with the VP. Quayle never actually said that exact stupid thing.

I feel like this is likely the answer to why she thought this. That and people being called "Latino/Latina". It makes sense.

Latin is a region in ancient Italy, right above the river, and subsequently above Rome. So, she is not wrong, but I don't think she meant that.

you googled that. it's INCORRECT they're only referencing to the Vatican which has Latin as an official language. it's NOT a region!
