Once a friend told me that if I kept biting my nails, a big nail ball would grow inside my small intestine because they wouldn't get digested and then the doctors would have to do an operation to take the nail ball out.

When I was about 4, I used to bite my nails- CONSTANTLY. My uncle tried the "scare" tactic to get me to stop, so he told me that when I bit my nails, evil germs would fly inside my now "open" fingers and they would eat my organs. In the middle of the night a few weeks later, I bit my nails while sleeping. When I woke up, my fingers were covered in dirt. I was SO scared, until my mom told me that my cat rubbed against me while I slept.
