When I was about 6-7 y.o. there was an ad on TV explaining the differences between 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade burns. I believe 1st grade burn were the ones you'd got when you were in the 1st grade of school and so on. I was very worried I'd get ever buernt during that year because I'd be in 2nd grade and didn't want to have blisters!

I used to think that the chicken pox were a group of chickens that went door to door to visit every kid before they grew up. I also thought that the chickens would peck your skin and that is what made the red marks.

When I used to have stomach aches, my grandmother would tell me it was because I slept with my blankets off and air got into by belly button making my stomach hurt. To this day even when it is 90 degrees in the room, I sleep with a tiny part of the blanket covering just my stomach.

Ways to catch a cold: Running around the house in bare feet, catching a cold breeze while your hair was wet, and not buttoning your coat when you went outside.

I used to tell everyone that I was allergic to concrete - because when I fell on it, it hurt. I have since learned that it's an allergy that has afflicted 100% of the population

When I was little when someone said or talked about "heart attack", i thought of an old man in a wagon with the wagon going out of control and it reached the bottom of my old street and crashed into my friends mailbox and he got birdies around his head.

I am born in june and my sign is Cancer. When I was younger, I believed that this meant I was going to get Cancer when I was older. Every time someone mentioned the fact that I was a cancer I'd run crying to my mom. Boy was I silly!

I used to believe that a doctor's waiting room was a type of healing chamber which made you get better while sat there. This could be because when I was a baby, I must have been feeling poorly when I went to the doctors and was better when I left.

My grandmother died from a subarachnoid hemorrhage when I was five. I thought she died from hemmroids. I overheard my mom talking to her sister on the phone about my grandfather's hemorrhoids and how they were worried that "he wouldn't be able to make the long drive" to come see us at Christmas and I got worried. We went Christmas shopping at the mall that afternoon, and sitting in the food court at Chik-fil-A I asked my mom what hemorrhoids were. She started laughing and I started crying because I thought my grandfather was going to die. She told me we'd talk about it later, but we never did. I figured it out on my own eventually and still get embarrassed when I think about that.

I use to work with a police officer who believed he could catch AIDS from his handcuffs if he used them on a prisoner that was HIV positive. So he washed his handcuffs with soap and water after every arrest. Eventually, the build up of soap ruined the locking mechanism and he could not get the cuffs off an arrestee. They had to be sawed off
