When I was a child none of my food could touch or get mixed up on my plate. Everything had to be sectioned off neatly. I firmly believed that every food had its own compartment in your stomach. Hamburgers had the hamburger department, corn had the corn dept. and so on. I was convinced that if your food got mixed up and you ate it that way, it would not know where to go. The food would forever rot in your stomach and you would die. I was a very strange child!

i used to think that when you ate food it would go in your stomach and when you ate the rest it would fit back together just like a puzzle and then it would come out in that shape. i found out i was very wrong when i expected to find curly crap when i ate a cinnamon roll.

I used to believe that a little gnome lived in my tummy with a camp fire and a cupbored and that if i drank water it would put his fire out, so i would have to eat a chip with ketchup on the end ( looking like a match) to light it again. and if i didnt eat for ages, he would just get a chip out of the cupbored and eat it.

you know how when you choke on your food people say it went down the wrong drain er whatever? well i used to believe that in my throat were two slides and there were little soldiers guarding each one and they told the food which one to go down. So when i choked they were slacking off. I can still see this image perfectly in my mind.

When I was younger, I somehow got it into my head that there were a whole bunch of little compartments in my stomach. I thought that there was one for every different kind of food that I ate. And I thought that there was alittle man inside of me who organized and guarded everything for me. I didn't realize it was wrong until I saw a picture of a human stomach, and there were no compatments. I even used to make sure not to mix foods and eat everything seprately so that the man would have an easier job.

I used to believe that your stomach had four compartments. Two for solid food and main meals and such. One for drinks. And one for dessert. This is how I figured I could always eat so much and still have room for dessert. Surprisingly enough my stuffed horse told me that it isn't true. I have to go now. I have a phsychiathrist appointment.

When I was about four or so, I used to believe that my stomach was a hotel lobby, and all of the foods I ate that day were having a party! The apples and oranges were the hosts of the party, the banana was the old security guard, and the candy was the life of the party.

When I was little, I believed that there were elves living in my stomach that would make piles of all the food I had ever eaten. There were piles of cookies, roast beef, peas, carrots, etc...

I was once told that if i swallowed the pips from the grapes, then a grape tree would start growing inside me. So i imagined a fully grown tree coming out of my mouth ! I tried not to swallow any pips after that.

when I was eight years old, I swallowed a cherry pit. I was sure it was going to grow into a tree inside my stomach - I waited to die for daaaays.

When I was a litt le kid (not sure of the age.) I thought that there were little people in my stomach. I had it all made out. When I ate something, it went down my tubes and fell in front of a lion (which explains the growling of when i was hungry) and then he would poop it out. Then these little people would run and put it in a jar and stack it on a shelf. when the shelf got too full they would put it out.. Hints poop. If a jar was old and forgotten about, it would turn into a gassy substance and they would open the jar and run!.. Thus creating a fart. Im not sure about pee or how that worked but yea.

I was quite upset when I learned the truth!

When i was small i believed that we are all empty inside and that the food we eat first goes in the feet, then the legs and then slowly fills us up until to the top of our head!

When I was little, I didn't finish my dinner but wanted my dessert anyway. I told my mom I couldn't finish my dinner because the vegetable sack and the meat sack in my tummy had fallen over. And the reason I could still have dessert was because that sack was okay.

I used to believe that if you didn't eat you got sent to the "skinny-pinny" farm where all they fed you was stale bread and warm water.

I thought that your body is hollow and that your food just sat in there and you slowly fulled up.Then when you got filled up you just emptied yourself in the toilet.
