My parents would often forget to set the table with knives, and when I asked them to get me a knife they would tell me to cut my food with my fork. I said, "I can't."
I believed that when you became an adult, you gained the power of cutting food with a fork.

When I was four I thought that you had a food tube on one side of your neck and a drink tube on the other side. When ever someone would choke on something I believed that either the food went down the drink tube or the dring went down the food tube.

I used to believe that there was a little man living in my stomach that was constantly trying to crawl up my throat and out through my mouth. To keep him from escaping, I had to be sure to eat and drink every day.

I used to believe that when I eat, the food actually falls down to the bottom of the stomach and piles up. I thought vomiting was caused when you ate too much and it reached the top. I thought poop came out when the food rots.

When i was a little girl, my grandma told me that if you stretched after you ate, the food would come out of your ears. As i got older, I realized it was impossible. But still to this day, if i see someone stretching after a meal, i tell them, "stop, or the food's gonna come out your ears."

When I was young, I squeezed my own orange juice sometimes and my parents informed me that orange pulp was good for you. I confused this with orange seeds and one day put an orange seed in my dad's coffee when he wasn't looking saying "it's good for you!" He subsequently almost choked.

I used to believe that when my stomach growled, it was a big empty pit with a growling tiger in the bottom pacing around waiting for me to throw food down to it.

I used to believe that everytime I ate, the food filled me up from toe to head. I would measure stuff like up to my knees.

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.
