when I was 3 I use to belive when you drank somthing it would go to your right leg, and when you ate somthing it would go to your left leg. But I never thought about how it came out?

I used to believe there were little blue blobby men walking around the "carnival" of food-mashing machinery in my stomach. (The machines were what caused the noises as I listened to my mom or dad's stomach after they ate.) The food got carried around to the different stations (I remember that one resembled a Ferris Wheel), where the little blobby men were checking things off on their clipboards, making sure everything ran smoothly. Oh, to be a four year old again, trying to make sense of the world!

Apart from Hindu vegetarians and underfed people in poverty, I used to think all skinny people were anorexic, even when they ate normally like everyone else.

i was told by my cousin during a family dinner that the fish on the plate should not face you while eating it. Or else it would start talking to you! I din't wonder why it did not happen to other people. That made me turn the dish of fish for months at dinners.

Once my mom explained that if I didn't eat enough, a monster inside my tummy would eat away my stomach. So everytime I heard my stomach growl, I thought it was the monster.

I use to believe that our stomachs had seperate tubes for each food we ate and they never mixed together. I use to think my mom was lying when she said it all went to the same place.

When I was a little girl and I didn't want to eat anymore of my food, my mom would always tell me to go over there so she could push on my tummy. She would push on and and tell me if I was full or not, and if I wasn't I had to eat more until my tummy was full. I remember thinking "how does she do that?" Mom's a tricky

Thanks to a book my first grade teacher read to us once, I used to believe that using my thumb to push food onto my fork would cause fruits and vegetables to sprout out of my thumb.

I used to think when I ate, the food would go to my stomach, then it would stay in there and never come out, and one day it would get so full I would have to go to the doctors and get it taken out.

When my brother was little, he could never sit down, even to eat. My mother told him that if he stood while eating, all the food would go to his feet and they would get huge, but he wouldn't grow an inch. She told me, too, but I always sat anyway

when i was in pre-school, one of my teachers told everyone that if you didnt chew your food, it would float around inside of you for the rest of your life.

I hadn't learned about the digestion system yet so i wasn't sure what happened to your food. So i made up my own idea. Food would be stored in your toes and as you got older and ate the food level would rise until it came out your mouth and you died. every day i checked the mirror to see if i could see the food yet.

when i was little, i didnt realize i.could breathe through my nose
but at the same time i was supposed to close my mouth while eating. This made it very hard to eat cereal

My sister used to think that food would reconstitute in your stomach after you swallowed it. All those bits of apple would come together to make a whole apple once you had finished it. Presumably, your stomach would break it down again...

When I was young, I heard my parents always talking about people that had quit drinking and others saying that they never drink and they hoped I would not drink either when I grew up. I was terrified because I did not want to always be thirsty. Thank goodness i finally found out that they were not being literal. By the way, I don't drink. But I am not thirsty.

I thought that there were two hippos, a husband and wife, that lived in my tummy, and they stirred up all the food i would put in there, and eat it.

when I was eight years old, I swallowed a cherry pit. I was sure it was going to grow into a tree inside my stomach - I waited to die for daaaays.
