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!

I used to believe that if i swallowed some Play-Doh and made a wish, my wish would come true.
My mom used to tell me that bread crust made you whistle just so i would eat it.
The phrase "down the wrong pipe", ie, swallowing the wrong way, led me to believe that I had a whole range of pipes inside me, one for each of the different things I ate. So I would say, "Oh no, my peas went down the apple juice pipe!", etc. I used to wonder how they could all fit, I needed so many of them...

I used to think that when you ate something, it would just stack up inside your stomach. I had this mental picture of all these foods stacking up inside my stomach and once they would reach the top it would start coming up out of your mouth.

I used to believe that when you ate, the food just built up in your body and you died when you got all filled up. I was terrified of eating too much because I didn't want to fill up too fast and die.
When I was about 10, I was eating dinner with two of my friends. One of them choaked. Someone comments it went down the wrong way. I said "Is there really more than one way it can go down?" They just cracked up laughing at my question and said it was just an expression and even varified it with an adult! They made me feel real stupid! When I was older I realized there really are two ways it could go down.
