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.
As I child, I had a skewed version on how the digestive system works. I didn't understand the concept of acids then, so I thought that there were tons of sharp blades and rotating turbines to keep the food down in your throat.Then went into your intestines, which were like little subway stations. All the food bits would then be delivered to the correct spots in your body.
I used to believe that if I ate a fruit's seeds, a plant would grow in my stomach.
My Best Friend (forever) at Primary School used to have an over-active imagination. She always would make stories up, and tell me them, at first I used to believe these stories, but then I realised she made them up. One time she told me that if you ate 5 nuts and seeds, and they lined up in your stomach, you'd die because you'd get a nut allergy. I didn't think it was true, but I stopped eating the pumpkin seeds in my lunchbox just in case it was...
When I was very young I thought that as you eat, the food filled your hollow body and stretched it, and that's how people grow.
i used to believe if i ate the crust of bread it would make my hair curly
I used to think that when I ate, food fell all the way to my feet, and the more I ate, the more my body got filled. Sometimes I was afraid of eating too much and thought the food would pile as high as to the top of my throat. I thought I wouldn’t be able to fit anymore food in me!
i used to Believe that if you ate the top of broccili then your hair would turn all green a bushy and if you ate the bottom of it your arms and legs would go all stiff and green!
as you can guess i still hate broccili!
I used to believe that the mouse in the dungeon of Eureka's Castle-- and this completly reveals my ages, lived in my stomach and would grind up my food. I really don't know why, but that's what I always thought.
I used to think that tasty meant crunchy so if something was crunch I would ewwww this is really tasty.
Last year my little cousin, who is about 6 stayed at our house for a week, one day I bought a dozen of donuts and my little cousin started eating them, after the second donut I told him that if he ate the holes in the donuts he would end up with a hole inside his stomach, after that I went about my day, that night I went to grab a dounut and found nothing but the holes of the donuts, he had eaten all of them ecxept for the parts around the hole.
When I was young, I thought when a food was "spicey hot" you could blow on it to make it not "hot. For example, when I chewed Big Red gum, I would take it out of my mouth and blow on it because I thought that would make it "cool" down. Silly me!
When I was little, my grandpa told me you are what you eat. I used to eat so many peanut butter sandwiches! I used to believe that I would actually turn into a jar of peanut butter! I was so little, I didn't even bother wondering why adults weren't food!
Well, this isn't about me but my little brother. We had a dog and he would shed all the time so there'd be strands of hair everywhere. I told my brother that if he accidentally swallow a strand of dog hair, he would grow fur too. And then I said that it was already too late for him and I pointed out that there were fur on him already(it was actually his arm hair/peach fuzz). He started panicking and I was cracking up.
My mum would always talk about the dangers of eating raw meat for fear of tapeworms, and said that if you had one, you needed to put a bowl of soup up to your mouth and the tapeworm would come out. I believed this for quite some time, until I learnt that tapeworms live in your intestines, not your stomach :P
I used to believe that my stomach had a tiny mouth inside of it that would help chew up my food. So some days I would swallow food whole and hope that the tiny mouth in my stomach enjoyed eating as much as I did.
When I was a tot- I thought that when I swallowed food, there were lots of little elf type men chopping it up into smaller pieces as it went down my throat and into my stomach.
when i was about 5 my nan told me that "my intestines were talking to eachother" whenever my tummy rumbled and i imagined little round black things sitting around a coffee table having a conference in an office. hahaa also i used to look at wallpaper and see weird faces - i was trully a deranged child.
When I was little my mom always said that you are what you eat. So, I was afraid that of I ate something, I would turn into that!
