My cousin lived near what my Parents, and Aunt and Uncle called a swamp. They told us never to go in the swamp because it had alligators and crocodiles in it. We wouldn't go in and if a ball went in the swamp it was gone forever. They just didn't wan't us getting hurt, but I was scared to death when we brought our dog over when he would travel into the swamp. We live in New England, so when I got a little older I realized it wasn't really true.

When I was about 5 or 6, someone who illegally kept a pet lion in St. Louis had it escape. We lived about an hour south and everytime we went anywhere in the car, I would curl up on the floor if my parents weren't looking (seat belt rules) because I was terrified it was going to come get me. At night I was scared to sleep because I thought it would come crashing thru the window to get me. I don't know why I thought I was such a lion magnet.

Once in a while the news reports showed people getting injured by bulls in Spain. I used to think they didn't have good locks to lock the bulls up and therefore they escaped and hurt people. I didn't know they ran with the bulls on purpose until I was 20!

When I was younger, my dad told me that the cattle the were grown around our hometown (Santa Maria, CA) were a special breed that had longer legs on one side of their body than the other. The reason for this, he stated, was to help them keep their balance with the hills that made the area's landscape; if the legs were the same length the cattle would fall over and roll down the hill every time they stood up!

I used to believe snakes lived in the walls. My dad told me when I was young if I put my finger near a socket one would come out and bite me.

When I was little, my grandpa told me that we could grow worms (using a bucket full of dirt and sprinkle sugar on top). Everytime I went there I would see the worms. Didnt know until later that he would run into the garden before I showed up to dig them up

When I was about 8 or nine years old, my cousin told me that if you screamed at a roach it would die. I can just imagine what everyone thought when I was screaming in the bathroom!

When I was a boy my grandfather told me that I could catch wild rabbits with salt. Needless to say his entire backyard was spotted with paper towels layed out filled with piles of salt. Did come close to catching one one time..LOL

When I was 5 or so, my dad told me that if you caught a squirrel by the tail it would pop off and the squirrel would run away and hide until it grew a new tail.

When I was little, my dad told me to "sit there until the cows came home", and I kept looking back at the door waiting for the cows to come through. I always wondered why the cows were never in our house to begin with.

When I was around 8, my sisters told me whenever they went to sleep, they turned into animals and went about their daily business. One of my sisters told me she was a tiger, and the other two who were twins told me they were monkeys. She told me to wait for a minute, then came back with reddish stripes on her arm as proof. I believed this until I was 10.

I used to think that if you took an egg from the refrigerator and kept it warm for awhile, it would hatch into a baby chicken. I did try this a few times, but each time I would get impatient and return the egg to the carton.

When visiting my grandparents cabin, I would get bored. To fix this, my grandpa decided to tell me that the squirrel (really just multiple squirrels in the forest) was named Tiny. "Tiny," he said was really a magical little horse (not a pony) that would turn back if I caught it. Wanting to ride it, I'm sure that he and my parents got hours of entertainment watching me chase the squirrels with a bug net.
