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.
I used to believe that there were three pipes in your throat. One for food, one for drink, and one for breathing.
I would think that my mouth and digestive track was an amusment park ride and the bits of food were little people. I always wanted them to have the best ride so I would worry about how I ate each peice of food
I used to believe that If u ate while upside down then you would poop it out your mouth!
I used to believe that whatever I ate would be put back together again in my stomach. So if I had a grilled cheese sandwich and milk, despite the fact that I had chewed, there in my stomach would be a perfectly formed grilled cheese sandwich, with the milk formed to look like it was still in a glass.
i used to believe that when you ate food it went down to your stomach and grew back into the whole peice of food before i had eaten it (like whole round tomatoes and pizza slices) and they lived in the Food City until a giant Tsunami came and washed them out (when you went to the bathroom)
My mom told me that if I swallowed bubble gum, that my insides would stick together.
when I was little, I thought that the food we ate went into each leg, and then all the way up. Once it had gotten to my neck I knew I was full.
My grandfather would always eat dessert even if he had not finished his main course. He used to tell us that desserts went "into the pudding hole" so you would still have room for dessert even if you were full-up with your main course. I used to think your main courses and puddings went into separate stomachs.
When I was a little kid, I used to believe that food and drink would go down different tubes in your digestive system. The tubes separated somewhere between your neck and your stomach, and somehow food and drink knew which tube to go down. The food tube ended at your butt, and the drink tube ended at your penis.
I was about 4 yrs old. My Grandma was eating a banana split & she was chewing the ice cream! I asked her how she could do that. Didn't it hurt her teeth? She pulled out her false teeth. I though this was an excellent idea & told my Dad that I was going to have false teeth when I grew up. Why was this funny?
i used to beleive that my stomach was just a big empty pit, and there was a little scuba diver in my stomch that would get rid of everything that made my tummy ache. i would always get scared to go to the bathroom because i thought i would empty all the stuff out and the little man would have nothing to swim in!
When I was about 4 I used to think that I had separate "tanks" intead of a stomach despite being told repeatedly that all the food went in to the same place by my parents - I would not accept this was true. For example: I used to say at meal times that my spinach tank was full but my ice cream tank was completely empty!
I used to believe that when i was eating the food was really filling my whole body up. When I was really hungrey i was "full up to my ankles," and wehen i just couldn't eat anymore i was "full up to my eyes." That way, i was to full to eat my meatloaf, but not too full for the ice cream. I'm not sure where i thought my organs were, or if i had any organs at all.
