I used to believe that those tiny dragon flies with the blue body were dangerous. My grandmother told them they were called 'darning needles'. She also they have been known to sew up peoples mouths, especially if they talked too much.

One summer when I was 5 years old I was visiting my grandparents with my younger sister. Gramma had brought us from Alberta to Nova Scotia on the train. One thing I remember is that there were many dragonflies which I was afraid of because my Grandfather told me that if I ever told a lie, that a dragonfly would come and sew my mouth shut.

Where I grew up, we called dragonflies "sewing needles". My aunt told me that they were called that because if they came near you, they would sew you up. Like sew your arm to your side, your hand to your face or even sew your mouth shut. I would run screaming every time I saw one.

My grandmother used to tell me that dragonflies would sew my mouth shut and thats why they looked like sewing needles with wings. So I would cover my mouth when I saw one.

when i was 10, i believed that if i was stung by an insect called a dragonfly, it would automatically sew up my lips so i couldn't open my mouth. Since the dragonflies looked like long sewing needles, that's why my older brother told me, to scare me. I didn't get over it until I was 15.

Two things really. First was from my Grandmother, that Dragonflies were in reality spies for children with bad language and when hearing a dirty word uttered by a child, would respond by sewing the child's lips together! Second from my Mother, was that Grasshopper's would spit tobacco juice when picked up. I still get uneasy when I see a Dragonfly!

I used to believe that dragon flies had little sewing needles in their mouths, so if you said something bad, the dragon fly would sew your mouth shut!! I was really scared of them. After all, that's why they were called dragon flies.
