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.
when my brother was really little, he somehow learned that cows had more than one stomache, so he naturally assumed that he did too. one night at dinner he informed my mother that he couldn't ea the rest of his dinner cuz he was full. at desert my mother brought this up, and he replied with 'my dinner stomache was full, but my dessert stomach is still emty! he said this like it was the most obvious thing in the world!
when i was little, i used to think i was the loudest chewer ever. i thought this because when you chew somthing it's in your head, and close to your ears and it seems loud, but i didn't know that nobody else heard it like that. i used to get embarrassed when i ate somthing crunchy because i thought i was annoying people, so i would try to chew really quietly. i was jelous of my sister,because she could chew quietly, and i wanted to learn how to do that.
As a child, somehow I got into my brain that if I swallowed the food whole, that I would get all the nutrients I need, because chewing took all the nutrients out.
So for about a month I swallowed beans whole and kernels of corn and such, until my mother told me it was all bloody stupid and I dropped it.
When i was about 6, i used to think that the food you had eaten kept building up inside your body, right up your throat and eventually out your mouth! I thought that was why you were sick! (I didn't understand the digestive system at the time!) So when my mum said, 'don't eat a lot or you'll be sick' i thought that the food piling up was the only explanation! teehee x
