I used to believe that when you got scurvy you'd grow scales. I don't know why. my dad always told me to eat my oranges or else I'd get scurvy. I didn't eat an orange till I was about eight. I wanted to be a fish.

I used to believe that when you ate, the food would go to your feet, and when the food pile grew to the top of your head, you would get taller so there would be more room for food!

I used to believe that there was a village of gnomes that lived in my stomach and digested my food for me. Everytime I ate I was feeding their village, so I ate lots of seeds so they could grow plants.

I used to believe that your body filled up with food when you ate, from your feet up to your head. When you were all full you had to throw up.

I used to believe that the saliva that we were born with would have to last us our whole lives. I was extremely worried that if I ate something that tasted bad that I would end up being a stinky old lady with vile breath one day!

In my family, whatever you are given to eat, should be eaten all and the plate should be empty.When i didn't want anymore, my mom would say "one more for mommy" and i thought that if i didn't eat it that my mom would die. Others would say "one for grandma" or for other people, which made me eat EVERYTHING until it was all gone.

At one point in my childhood I convinced myself of a false memory I thought I had... The memory was of me drinking from the top rim of a glass somehow... This of course caused me a lot of frustration!

I used to believe that when you ate food, it piled up inside your body and pushed on the top of your head and made you grow taller and when you couldn't grow taller it would pile around your stomach and make you fat.

I used to think that the human body was hollow. When you ate food, it began to slowly fill your body. When your body got full of food, you got sick and threw up.

My family is made up of mostly women, so when I was growing up I was very conscious about looking fat and losing weight and all of that business which women obsess about. When I was little I wanted to be thin too.
I thought that the more you eat the more would come out the other end and the more weight you would lose.
Needles to say I ended up being a very large child

I used to believe that when you ate, the food would be put in your stomach whole (despite the whole chewing thing..). It'd all pile up, like a bad game of tetris. My aunt led my sister and I to believe there was always room for ice cream though, because of the 'trickle down' effect. The ice cream was the only thing that changed shaped-- it'd slowly make its way down your tummy through the cracks between the foods you've already eaten.

We put food in our mouths, so naturally I believed my stomach was in my head.
