I thought it was physically impossible to wet yourself once you were potty trained or wet the bed if you were eleven or older.

One time I was sleeping over my friend’s house and I didn’t feel good. I didn’t tell her mom because I was afraid that she would take my temperature rectally because that’s how my mom always did it. When my mom took me home next morning I went right into bed and I had 105.5! When I told my friend she said that her mom had switched her to an ear thermometer!

When I was five, I was such a ditz that when I cried, I thought that the world really did become distorted (like how it looks through tears).

There's a scene in Mary Poppins, where Mary's uncle is floating in the air laughing, then when the others laugh, they also float. Mary and Bert describe the uncle as "contagious", so my cousin and I thought that he had some sort of disease that made him float. We called it "the float-when-you-laugh disease".

When I was little I believed that if you were eating while going #2 you would fart REALLY loud and continue to fart loud over and over until after you'd swallowed the food. I always made sure to swallow any food before sitting down!

When I was little I did not know that when you throw up you are throwing up food that you ate previously. I thought it was just nasty junk coming out. It wasn't until age 8-9 and I got a stomach bug that I realized that what I was throwing up was that afternoon's lunch. It was even more revolting when I figured that out.

I heard my dad say that he thought the computer had a virus, and that made me worry that everyday objects could get "sick" and therefore spread germs if you tried to use them.

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".
