When I was a kid I thought praying mantises were made out of grass
When I was young, I had a fear of spiders, and one day I dreamed of a spider walking on my hand. I was so scared that I fell out of my bed!
When I was young I didn’t use to look out the window of my room because I thought there was an animal outside. I thought this because it was something that had occurred to my father so that I would not open the window.
When i was a kid, i thought that nematodes would eat our house like in one episode of SpongeBob
I used to believe that ants had the smallest nipples in the world
When I was a little gril I used to believe that spiders were by myside. I have always been a woman very afraid of insects especially of spiders and this fear was born since I was a very small girl since everywhere I went I always found myself with a spider, no matter what I did, I could never I got rid of them, when I went to sleep, when I went to eat, even when I went to take a shower, I do not know if they were really there or if it was just my belief that I was there.
when I was a kid I thought that there was a monster in my swimmnigpoll
I used to believe that lizards were little dinosaurs ready to enlarge of they touched the water
This summer I was fine and was having fun until one night while I'm playing on my phone my teddy bear moved from by my side to hiding in a little corner of my bed. That freaked me out so I placed both of my teddy bears in one spot and leave the room. When I came back to go to sleep I see they both have moved. Today the smaller one moved twice. Now I have been searching to see if there alive in any way. since they haven't tried to kill me I am fine and I think we can be friends I just wish they would talk to me!
When I was little, I used to think that if I walked bare foot, spiders would come out of the ground to come bite my feet. My mother told me this, so that I put socks. She had to buy socks with a princess on.
I used to believe that earwigs crawl in your ears
I use to think if you ate bugs you'd die.
I used to believe that aliens lived in the wharehouse of my house
Hate to tell you, but last night my 17 year old daughter woke up screaming in the middle of the night that a bug was in her ear!. It was horrifying. She felt it crawling around. I advised her to tilt her head and jump up and down and out came an earwig! It was the most disgusting and frightening thing that ever happened to us! So it does happen!
I used to believe that earwigs could crawl inside your ears and lay eggs there, because they are called earwigs.
I used to believe that earwigs could crawl in your ears and make you deaf. So when one flew into the car on a road trip, I would scream and cover my ears. One time I was eating in the car and an earwig flew in there, I got so scared I threw up!
One time when I was younger a dragonfly landed on my arm and left 5 marks, my mom said no that was a sewing needle, they only do that if you told a lie. She said 5 marks was 5 lies, she then told me I had to spill the beans on me and my brothers, if I didn't the sewing needle would come back and see my mouth shut for lying. I remember giving her a list of things, that I did and my brothers, she said to think harder, I spilled the beans. I found this website tonight only by mistake, I was researching what was the difference between sewing needles and dragon flys because I still get scared of sewing needles around me. Just the other day. I just learned tonight sewing needles are dragon flys, sewing needles are what our parents told us to confess. Both my parents have been deceased for 40 years, but I got a good laugh tonight remembering how she got me to confess to her saying a sewing needle was gonna see my mouth shut, I had that little scar for many years and never forgot it, and I still don't like them buzzing around me
I also used to think if you stared at a mantis you would be paralyzed forever.
My Sister Jenna Once Had A Dream That She Shrunk To Ant Size.
Now She Hates Ants.
A close friend of mine grew up thinking that crane flies were just male mosquitoes (and that all actual mosquitoes were thus the females). This was apparently a widespread misconception where she grew up!
