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 whenever you accidentally swallowed food without chewing it, there was a little mouse-trap looking thing living in your stomach that chewed it for you!

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.

I didn't understand much about digestion, and thought that once food entered your body, it stayed there. I believed that it began filling your feet immediately after you were born and would continue filling your body until it reached your throat, preventing you from breathing. I thought that being "full" was the reason people died when they were old.

When grown ups said my food had gone down the wrong hole if I choked on something, I believed that there was a hole for food and a hole for drink. I got confused as to how food and drink knew to go down the right holes.

When I was a little girl about 5 or 6, I use to be the pickiest eater and never eat much of my dinner. One week when i went to stay with my grandmother she noticed this and wanted to change this habit. So she told me that if i didnt eat, i would dry up and blow away. I believed her and I would cry and cry thinking i was going to blow away and never be able to see my family ever again. one night when i didnt finish my grandmothers dinner (she made me eat beats yuck!) I thought " this is it, im going to blow away tonight." so i snuck downstairs that night and found something i actually liked in the panchery and ate as much as i could. I thought i had saved myself, untill my parents came to pick me up and told me it wasnt true. they werent too happy with grandma
