Up until I was *eleven*, I thought "anxiety" was just a word for any negative emotion, the reason being that a lot of my school peers thought I was afraid when I was actually sad/angry.
Not me, but one old school friend of mine used to believe that "chamber" meant urine because of the phrase "chamber pot".
At school, my swim teacher told me to run to the changing rooms, dry myself and get changed as quickly as possible or else "a cold might catch me."
I think it was a cross between the myth that being cold or wet makes you catch a cold, plus her desire to make me not dawdle. I was always skeptical but I never outright disbelieved it until later.
She'd describe said "cold" as being a huge, slimy green monster and when it caught you, you'd sneeze once, then fall sick with a cold.
At one point, I sneezed and she jokingly said, "That cold has caught you!". It was actually hayfever, but I freaked out.
She'd sometimes state that she could see the "cold" and I was wondering why I couldn't.
When I told her that I'd never been assaulted by a green monster, she said that the cold must be a very slow runner or I was a very fast runner.
At one point, I was scared because I thought I had slime on me and that "the cold" had caught me, but it turned out to only be a snail.
I thought that you could only catch a cold in the winter. I knew that germs made you catch colds and that being cold alone doesn't make you catch a cold, but because it was called a "cold", I thought you could only catch one in winter. Then, Dad caught a cold in summer and explained that you could actually catch colds in the summer. P.S. he's fine now.
When I almost choked to death one time and when I vomited, I thought people had two holes inside their necks; one for food and one for ‘water’. If you eat too fast and the food goes in the ‘water’ hole, you choke. If you drink too fast and the ‘water’ goes in the food hole, you vomit.
I used to believe that the red dot on Indian people's foreheads meant that they had psychic powers.
When I was little I believed that when I put lipstick on my lips, the lips grew.
When I was little I used to believe that we had a machine in the belly that was creating kisses and when someone didn't t give you one, it was because they had run out of kisses.
When I was a child, I saw the movie "Matilda"and I started thinking that I might practise and develop my superpowers so I used to try to move things with my look.
I used to think that if I ate spinach I would have a lot of strength (Popeye)
