I used to believe that your stomach was divided into seperate parts, for seperate foods, and if someone said their, "food went down the wrong tube" it was something like, milk going into the macaroni and cheese tube.
I used to believe that when you ate a food, it would go through you and then there were 2 witches in your stomach that would mix up all your food that you ate and there would be a back door to where it would 'empty out'.

my mother used to tell me that she could see all the way into my stomach to see if i had eaten something i wasnt supposed to and all she was really doing was looking at my back teeth. I thought it was amazing how she could see the chocolate all the way down there in my stomach, so i once ate a piece of lettuce afterwards cause i hoped it would land on top of the chocolate and hide it from view
I used to believe that when i ate any kind of food each ingredient would separate in my stomach and fill up its own special column. I used this reasoning to explain why i couldn't finish my dinner but i had room for dessert...the ice-cream column wasn't full yet!
i used to think that in my stomach there were shelves and my food would go down my throat and land on the shelf, and that there was a pool or cup or something on the bottom for all the liquids to go to... yeah
My mum's babysitting charge used to believe that he had two tanks in his stomach - a dinner tank, and a pudding tank!
when i was little, i always imagined the inside of your stomache to be like a big pool of blood, and anything you ate just bobbed around in it...whole!! there would be whole fruit and veg, and anything that had started with a wrapper had somehow mysteriously retained it on the way down! even drinks would still be in bottles (unless it was from a cup, in which the cup would be bobbing around like a little boat!....i was an odd child.
When I was little, I used to believe that when you ate anything. It would be divided up into certain little compartments in your stomache. Like the liquids would go to the liquids etc. Now I know that is so very not true.
When I was little I used to think that if you ate chicken bones, new bones would incorporate themselves into your body.
I believed that each rib held a different kind of food, from the food triangle. And when you went to the bathroom, it all got flushed out, and then went on again and again...
I used to think that when you ate food and swalloed it, while it was rolling down a long tube inside you, it would form into a round ball and join all the other round balls inside your stomach until you pooped them out.
i was told by my cousin during a family dinner that the fish on the plate should not face you while eating it. Or else it would start talking to you! I din't wonder why it did not happen to other people. That made me turn the dish of fish for months at dinners.
I used to believe that the digestive sytem was only for people who ate digestives, and being as i hated them, i either didnt have a digestive system, or didn't use it.
i used to believe when you ate, food went in to the right lung and drink went into the left lung. Whenever i drank something warm i could feel it warming the left side of my chest.
