i used to believe that you needed a certain amount of saliva to eat stuff. like you know how you swallow every few seconds automatically? i thought i was wasting spit that i needed to eat... so i would try not to swallow at all so that i would have enough saliva for my lunch! cos i never saw other people swallowing when i did
My mom always thought I was fat (I wasn't I was normal.) When I was 3 she told me if I eat more then 3 meals a day I would explode
When I was little, I used to think that certain foods "lived" in certain spots of my body. So I would talk to my mom and say(as i pointed to my hand, for example) and this is where all the bananas i eat go...
when i was little, maybe about 5, i used to eat at least 10 times a day, and my mom told me that if i contiuned to eat that much, one day id turn into a blow fish, and id float away untill someone found me and poped me, she made it such a big deal, even now at the age of 23 when i eat alot i think of the blow fish
when i was little my mom told me that if i didn't wash my mouth after eating i'd grow a moustache. i thought men were really disgusting people.
when I was 3 I use to belive when you drank somthing it would go to your right leg, and when you ate somthing it would go to your left leg. But I never thought about how it came out?
When I was little I used to chew all food using only one side of my mouth at a time because I thought if I used both sides I would choke when I swallowed the food.
Once, my mom said that if you would eat like a little tiny peice of paper, a book would grow inside of you. I have believed that for a very long time... but not anymore.
my mum told me that when you choked it was because your food had gone down the drink hole. You also have an air hole too! I was very embarrassed when my firends corrected me !
when I was little my mother dieted a lot and I heared a lot about how bad it was to eat between meals. I thought that some people ate half a meal, snacked on something else, then finished the rest of the meal.
I used to believe that my stomach was like a big food market with shelves filled with food i had eaten and my organs would go there to buy them and my heart was the shopkeeper and sat behind the counter and had an old matress bump under her feet(yes, she was female and had feet.) so she could bump blood. i was sure i had isles full on icecream and starberries and i envied my organs cause they could eat them all of the time.
When I was little, mydad told me 'you are what you eat'. I thought that this meant that eventually, you would turn into the kind of food you eat, and htis was why we ate something different every night for dinner. I guess I thought it would slow the transformation. I also thought that if you were to eat a lot of one thing, then it would quicken the process, and I always wondered why vegetarians weren't all walking vegetables.
When I was like 5 or 6 I used to believe that your tastebuds were like these tiny tiny tiny little buttons/lights in your mouth. Then whenever you would eat say for example, something sweet, then your "sweet" tastebud would flash a small green light which was supposed to let your brain know that the thing you are eating is sweet.
When I was little, I thought that a giant gummy bear lived in my tummy, and when he got hungry, he would growl (normal tummy noises). And that is when I felt like I had to eat because the bear needed food.
I used to believe that if I ate candy I would shrink because that is what my brother and sister said. They said I started out the same size as them but because I ate candy I had shrunk. Eventually I gave them all my Easter Candy that year.
Up until age 8 or 9, I thought there was a big gear in my tummy that would grind up the food I ate. When my tummy grumbled from hunger, I thought it was because the gear needed food to lube it up. When I was full, I thought it was because too much food would prevent the gear from turning. Once the gear ground up more of my food, then I could eat some more.
i use to believe that when we ate all the food just went to our feet and we would fill up with food and when we threw up that was the way we got rid of it... never occured to me why i was always going to the loo....
I used to think that there was a counter (like the odometer in a car) in my brain that counted the number of time I chewed my food before swallowing.
When I was little I used to believe that when you ate food, it all built up inside. I didn't know about organs so I just thought it all kept piling up. I remember sometimes I would try to think about what level I thought the food was at. I guess I never thought about what happened when you were all filled up!
As a child, I used to think you could quench your thirst by repetitively building up spit in your mouth and swallowing it.
