I used to believe that your stomach was divided into seperate parts, for seperate foods, and if someone said their, "food went down the wrong tube" it was something like, milk going into the macaroni and cheese tube.

until i was around 12, i used to belive that whenever i was too full, i meant that there was not enough space in my stomach for me to store anymore food...and if i continued eating, food will overflow from my stomach and into my throat, finally coming out of my mouth.

Up until iw as about 8 i didnt eat well. I really diddnt eat lots of veggies and meat and stuff. So when My mom told me to eat more healthy stuff, i told her that my veggie compartment was full and i still needed to fill my sweets compartment. Even now when we have something i dont really like i use that excuse. Mymom gets a kick every time!

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.

My grandma told me when I was a todler "If you eat mashed potatoes your ankles wold be prettier" and I believed her. I can't believe that I could believe such a silly thing.

When I was little I had no idea what my body looked like under my skin. I thought I was completely hollow inside, I thought that when I ate, the food would fall down to my toes. Sometimes I would sit and worry about what would happen when I was older and my insides were all filled up with food.

Once, my mom said that if you would eat like a little tiny peice of paper, a book would grow inside of you. I have believed that for a very long time... but not anymore.

When i was about 4 i believed that we had two holes in our throat, one for drink and one for food, and when i choked i believed that it went down the wrong hole!

I used to believe that your body was hollow, so when you ate, the food went all the way down to your feet and filled up your body from your feet all the way up. When it got to your mouth, you were full.

When I was little I used to believe that I had two stomachs. One for food and another for drinks.

I used to think that all the food I ate just piled up inside me and if I ate too much I'd be full forever.

When I was about 5, I was a very picky eater so I didn't eat a lot. My brother, who is 7 years older than me, told me that there were little bugs inside of me, and even if I didn't eat, the bugs inside still got hungry. So he told me they would eat my insides for food. Nevertheless, I ate all the time. I believed him for the longest time, like 3 years, too.

When I was a kid, I had this idea that the inside of the torso was basically hollow. If you swallowed food, it would fall out of a hole at the base of the neck and into this cavernous region. At the bottom it would fall into stomach acid (for some reason I knew about stomach acid but not the stomach itself) and the walls were just skin/muscle tissue. I don't remember when it dawned on me that there were organs and bones in there, but I do remember that, at least for a few moments, I was cautious about accepting this "anti-hollow" theory.

When i was about 6, i used to think that the food you had eaten kept building up inside your body, right up your throat and eventually out your mouth! I thought that was why you were sick! (I didn't understand the digestive system at the time!) So when my mum said, 'don't eat a lot or you'll be sick' i thought that the food piling up was the only explanation! teehee x

I used to believe that there was a loud speaker just above my stomach (inside) that when I was thinking to myself it was announcing it to all the "little creatures" inside of me working. I thought that these "little creatures" were the ones who kept running around making things work.

When I was maybe 7 years old, my Mom had a boyfriend who ate like a pig, but was skinny as a rail. I asked why. My Mom said it was because he had a hollow leg. I was skeptical, but basically accepted it. I don't even know when I realized how ridiculous her explanation was. But it was years.

When I was little, I used to think that certain foods "lived" in certain spots of my body. So I would talk to my mom and say(as i pointed to my hand, for example) and this is where all the bananas i eat go...
