When I was child ,I uesd to believe if I couldn't eaten food, The thunder might hit me! I also believe the ghost will apear on the mirror at midnight.
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 belive that once you had eaten somthing that it wold shrink to a really small mini version of that food and be stacked up in your tummy reaching all the way up to your mouth until you was sick,
when i was little, i thought that if i swallowed something the wrong way it wouldn't go in to my stomache but it would go into my arms or legs or something.
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 ...
When I was a kid, whenever I heard someone saying that they were on a diet, it was always an overweight person. So, I thought that "on a diet" was just a polite way of saying "fat". Once, my mom (who wasn't heavy) mentioned that she was on a diet. I kept arguing with her, saying, "No, you're not!".
I used to believe that when you ate food, it came alive in your stomach. (remarkably, i pictured it whole, as in before I'd chewed it.) I thought you got that "full" feeling because the food was pushing out on your stomach. I also believed this was how people got fat, because their food pushed too hard.
When I was younger my brother and I would listen to each others stomachs. My mother told us that it made these noises because there was worms inside there. I believed that worms were in my stomach with there own little control room controling my body and even controling the thought I had about them.
I used to believe that if you kept eating and drinking, your body would fill up and you would die.
This was before I learned about the whole digestive/waste thing.
When I was little I use to believe there were drawers in my stomach so whatever I ate had its own draw that would open and catch it
As a very young kid (three or four), I liked putting marbles in my mouth (something about the smoothness) and my mom would always get upset when I did. As expected, I eventually swallowed one on accident. Frantic that my mom would somehow know, I figured out how to remove it. All I needed to do was stand on my head! Brilliant! Five-minutes later, with a face red from blood rushing to my head, I just gave up and told my mom what had happened. She got upset, but then she taught me about the esophagus and told me I would just poop the marble out.
When I was a kid, I had this idea that the inside of the torso was basically hollow. If you swallowed food, it would fall out of a hole at the base of the neck and into this cavernous region. At the bottom it would fall into stomach acid (for some reason I knew about stomach acid but not the stomach itself) and the walls were just skin/muscle tissue. I don't remember when it dawned on me that there were organs and bones in there, but I do remember that, at least for a few moments, I was cautious about accepting this "anti-hollow" theory.
when i was little i believed that when you ate food it would fill up your body all the way to your neck...when dessert came around i would always say the i had room for dessert because dessert fills up you head...now i know that all food goes into your stomach
I used to believe that when you eat something it goes to your foot and everything you eat after that gets higher and higher in your body. Once it gets to your head a doctor has to surgically cut open your chest and take out the food and after the doctor takes out the food, you are empty and you can eat more.
I used to believe that if I didn't chew food the same number of times on each side of my mouth before swallowing it, that my teeth would think I had favorite ones and get mad at each other. Since I didn't want them fighting in the night and waking me up, I always made sure that I chewed equally on both sides!
When I was little I had no idea what my body looked like under my skin. I thought I was completely hollow inside, I thought that when I ate, the food would fall down to my toes. Sometimes I would sit and worry about what would happen when I was older and my insides were all filled up with food.
When i was little i believed that when you ate something it went into a pit in your stomach and that old people died of the food in their tummies overflowing into their throats.
