I used to believe that flea markets were a place people sold fleas, or the place was infested with fleas

I had older boy cousins whose yard was filled with spiders of all sizes and they knew I was terrified. They made it worse by telling me that if you stepped on a spider, it would double in size. Low and behold, I did it and two seconds later I saw a bigger version of the same spider...completely had me completely convinced!!!

I used to be terrified of spiders when I was younger. My brother once told me they crawl into my ears at night and lay eggs in my brain. I sleep with a blanket around my head ever since then.

Up until age 14, I thought stitches were little black bugs they put in your wound to heal it. This is because when I was five I had stitches placed in the center of my forehead at the hairline. All I could see was a little black through my tears.

When I was little, I slept on my side, and when I blinked, my eyelashes would brush the pillow, and I thought that I was hearing worms taking bites out of the inside of my head. I was terrified of it for the longest time......

I used to believe that the reason you never saw moths during the day was because they were all flying towards the sun. Then, when they couldn't make it all the way there and it got dark, they would see the lights of the houses and fly back down.

I thought bug spray/ fumigating didn't actually kill the bugs just smelled really bad so the bugs would leave. When I found out it does kill I thought it seemed really mean!

When I was a kid, I heard that earwigs can't walk backwards. (Later I found out there was a Star Trek episode about this, maybe?) I was terrified an earwig would go into my ear and, only being able to move forward, would have to eat through my brain to go out the other ear. I slept with my hands over my ears for years.

I used to believe that earwigs were hairy little bug strips that would get stuck on your ears and people would freak out when they saw you because they would think you were slowly becoming like a hairy monkey or something.
I was a strange child.....

I use to believe that if you stepped on a spider, it would pee, then it would lose its eyes, then it would explode, so every time I stepped on a spider I would run away.

I used to believe that if you cut an earthworm in half that it created two new worms. I was told this by my neighbor after I accidently cut a worm in half while digging in the ground and started crying. I belived this into my 20s.

I used to believe that if you ate a worm or something else like that, that it would come out your nose. From this day on I stay away from the crawly bugs. Not that I believe in it but they still freak me out!!
