When I was little I never connected eating and elimination. I thought that any food you ate stayed inside you until you got the flu and puked it up. Consequently, I thought eveyone had to get the flu once a year or they would fill up and be unable to eat again until they'd vomited. I also knew someone who stopped eating as a child because she saw her uvula at the back of her throat and thought that it was backed up food. She was afraid she was running out of room in her body and wanted to save what little space she had left for sweets.

When i was younger, my mom always told me to finish my veggies and said, "You'd better keep eating or else it'll get cold." this made me thik that every time you took a bite, your food would magically re-heat!

until i was around 12, i used to belive that whenever i was too full, i meant that there was not enough space in my stomach for me to store anymore food...and if i continued eating, food will overflow from my stomach and into my throat, finally coming out of my mouth.

I used to believe that there was a city in my stomach. and that there were little people living in there...when ever I drank water, that was their rain...when ever I had rice...that was the snow.
But I was always weary of not swallowing any seeds from fruit...because those were asteroids.

When I was maybe 7 years old, my Mom had a boyfriend who ate like a pig, but was skinny as a rail. I asked why. My Mom said it was because he had a hollow leg. I was skeptical, but basically accepted it. I don't even know when I realized how ridiculous her explanation was. But it was years.

When I was about five, I remember mum telling me that if I didn't eat all my dinner, I'd fade away to a shadow. I spent years wondering what life would be like as a shadow. I also used to try to talk to shadows in case they were other people who didn't eat their dinner. Needless to say, none of them ever talked back to me. And I ALWAYS ate my dinner ...

I used to think (because of my sister) that if you ate only one piece of candy, it would be lonely in your stomach, so I always ate food in even numbers so they would have friends when they got down there.

I used to believe that there is a grinder inside our stomach (with rotating blades made out of bones) which crushed the food and hence digest it. I even used to believe that when we walk or run there was some kind of a mechanism which would rotate the chopper blades faster, digesting the food quickly!

I use to believe that when we eat the feet goes down to our toes and keeps going up. That's why we grew, the food was stretching out our bodies. If we threw up it meant that there was no more room at the time for the food.

when my cousin was about six we went out to dinner. a discussion came up about going out for ice cream afterwards. she had been making a big deal about how full she was so she wouldn't have to eat. when she heard that we might get ice cream, she proceeded to announce "well mommy, my dinner side is full, but my dessert side isn't"

I used to believe if you only chewed food on one side of your mouth, that you would only grow on that side of your body. So, I had to chew evenly on both sides ...
