I grew up on the family farm and when I was very little - like 5 - I sneezed. My uncle told me every time I sneezed I lost brain fluid out of my nose and I needed brain fluid for my brain to work. I was terrified if I lost too much brain fluid, I'd be stupid. Which explained why old folks forgot things.

I sneezed with my nose pinched closed for years. Ouch!

In 1999 my older brother told me that in the year 2000 all the computers would go down, all the planes in the sky would crash (right on my street... of course), and all the animals would escape from the zoo and giraffes and elephants would be running down the streets. On New Year's Eve I was so scared I could barely think straight! He also told me that the world would end in 1998. I got so upset and wasted another New Year's Eve worrying.

I used to believe that my stepmother was a witch and, because her birthday IS on Halloween, that on that particular night, she would turn into a black cat. My dad was the one that told me this...only because he knew I would believe anything he told me. lol

Gollum (from make-believe : witches)

My mom thought that God's name was Ed when she was little. She thought the Lor'd Prayer said "Our Father, who art in Heaven, Hello! Ed be thy name".

My uncle once told me that God gave us belly buttons as a place to put our bubble gum while we ate ice cream. The next time I had ice cream I tried it. What a sticky mess!

When I was a child, my older sister told me that peas were "fish eyes" and even though I'm all grown up now and I know that they are NOT 'fish eyes', you still can't get me to eat peas!!

Char (from food : nasty food)

I used to believe that for on this side of the world, three leaf clovers were common, and four leaf clovers were lucky. But on the OTHER side of the world it was the opposite. Lots of four leaf clovers and not so many lucky three leaf clovers. I used to dream about going to the "other side of the world" and picking enough four leaf clovers to last a lifetime, and bringing them back to this side of the world so they'd be lucky.

Wish I was a leprechaun (from the world : places)
