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.

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 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)

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.
