I believed I had some workers in my stomache who were working and cutting all the food I ate. And when I had a stomach-ache, my dad was telling me that these workers want to work and that they are getting bored so I have to help them and to take something to eat.

i used to believe that when you ate something it stayed in your stomach for ever. it just lined the walls. and when your stomach filled up, you died.

I used to believe that babies had taste buds on their faces. Why else would they be so messy? So whenever I fed a baby, I would "do them a favor" and put a little around their mouth before I gave them a bite.

When I was little, my mum told me not to swallow chewing gum. I asked why, and the reason she gave me was totally unsatisfactory, or at least kind of partial. Like: "Because your stomach can't digest it." To 6-year-old me, that was just not satisfying as an explanation. The same with toothpaste.

So in my head I imagined that everybody's stomach has lots of different compartments, each for a different type of food. There'd be one for peas, one for roast beef, one for spaghetti, etc. But things that aren't food don't have their own compartment. So when you swallowed chewing gum, the whole system would get messed up because the gum wouldn't know where to go.

This theory also had the nice benefit of explaining why you've always got room for pudding :o)

My 4-year-old son used to think that when you ate the food went to your legs first and filled you from the bottom up. So when it was time for dessert, he would say, I still have some room left in my right arm!

My mom used to tell me that drinking too much soda while I was waiting for the meal I ordered to come would fill me up. I used to argue in the resturant that it wouldn't "because the drinks go down one pipe and food goes down another!" This also explained why when I took a sip of water and started choking "the water went down the wrong pipe!"

When I was little my grandma told me that if you stood while you were eating. The food doesn't go to your tummy, instead goes in a tummy of a stray dog nearby.

for some odd reason I was sure that my food, once swallowed, went down to dwell in the land of my stomach, and would have all kinds of adventures.. so, I literally used to speak to my food (how embarassing) and try to tell them who was allowed to be king, in the realm of my tummy. the worst part about it was when a friend came over, and i didn't want to eat my food without instructing it, but I also knew I would be humiliated if I was found out! This was about the age of 4 or 5.

My older sister told me when I was young (so it had to be true) that we had a propeller in our stomaches that spun really fast and chopped up our food. So when our stomaches were empty, the blades rubbed the sides and is what made that grumbling sound.

When i was younger, i used to think that you had to eat tooth paste, not spit it out after, as i thought the tooth paste got digested and the nutrients went to your teeth.

I used to think that I had to be very careful and eat on each side of my mouth equally or my teeth would grow to be lop-sided.
