I used to believe that my body and limbs were completely hollow inside, and that when I ate, the food would fall down into my feet and kept filling me up. I used to wonder how would I fill the top of my head without food falling out my mouth.

I used to believe that if you swallowed food while hanging upside down, that it would drip into your brain.

When ever I choked on water or food as a kid my grandpa always told me it went down "the wrong tube". This made me think of the back of my throat having hundreds of tubes for all different kinds of food, like one for pizza and one for oreos etc. Thank you 5th grade biology!

I used to believe that when you made crumbs after eating, it wasn't because you were a messy eater, simply that the smallest crumbs would just fall out of your chin! Almost like they were caught in a filter, and they would just magic their way through the skin on your chin and then fall onto your plate, lap etc.

When I was younger I used to think there was an infinite amount of fridges in your stomach, each fridge for a type of food. This explained why I could be full of vegetables but would still be able to fit in a few more fries. The vegentable fridge was full, but the fries fridge wasnt...

I thought that when you ate anything, it started filling up at the tip of your toes and built up through your body. When the food you ate reached the top of your head, that's when you died.

When I was little everytime my mom said she needed to go on a diet, I thought the word diet meant a vacation! So when she said she should have went on a diet when I was born I didn't know I felt about that!

When I was little i thought people had mice in their stomachs and when they were hungry they would make a bunch of noise, hence the stomach growl.

I use to believe (thanks to my Mom) that if I swallowed a watermelon seed a watermelon would grow in my belly.

My grandpa said that if I ate watermelon seeds that a watermelon would grow in my tummy; everytime I accidentally I was SO scared that one would grow and it just wouldn't fit down there. Haha.

when i was small, my class had this human biology book...the book had some crazy drawings depicting a whole tribe of tiny men wearing overalls who lived inside your body, helping it to function...

i took it a little literally, and started eating pencils and paper, so they'd have writing materials...thank goodness my teacher stopped me before i got onto material for new overalls...

I used to believe that when you ate food, there were slides that went from your stomach and went all the way down to your feet and all of your food just went to your feet.

When I was little I fed my little brother bubbles because I thought they would make him float. Of course I never ate the bubbles. They tasted bad.

When i was a kid i thought that your body was hollow and when you ate food it just dropped to your feet and pushed into your toes and slowly built up, probably because of the saying, 'all full up'

When I was a little kid my Dad told me and my sisters that if we didn't eat the crust on our sandwiches we'd go bald like him. Needless to say we are all of our crust and now I use it on my kids.

when I was younger I use to believe that little men lived in your stomach, and they crused up all your food, then they pushed it out.

My mom used to "check" to see if I was full enough from a meal by feeling my stomach. If I hadn't eaten enough she'd say "oops! I think you missed a spot riiight here!" I would always try and stick my belly out as far as I possible so I could be done eating and go play. :)

When I was little I believed that i had two stomachs; one for dinner and one for desert! Because, i would get full on dinner, but when desert came around, oh boy! I could eat everything!
