I thought snot was made by a little person who lived in my sinuses, and I thought that if I could only get that person out of my nose, then I wouldn't have to blow my nose anymore.

Similarly, I thought saliva was made in a cauldron by a sinister guy with a deep voice who lived in a creepy room behind my saliva duct. I thought that he'd occasionally dip his spoon into the cauldron and taste it, like you do when you make soup, which gave me the creeps.

As a middle schooler I believed your body was just full of milk and I was terrified of babies because I believed they could kill you by removing too much milk from your body

I know this sounds really gross, but I used to think that when you had your tonsils out, the doctors would actually cure your throat open, because I wondered how they would be able to reach them so far down when putting the equipment through your mouth!

I thought that 'clapping' was just ordinary, stationary clapping, and that 'a round of applause' was clapping whilst moving your hands in a circular movement.

BONUS: I thought that 'round of applause' was 'round of a claws'

When I was little girl, I used to believe, I thought that by squint too much, I could block my eyes and every gust of wind my eyes would stay like that, so in my car, I never opened the windows except when I was wearing sunglasses. Now I do not believe it anymore and I open my windows without fear, and I thought that every storm my house would fly like in the movie '' La-Haut'' but that's another story that I'll talk about later...

I thought that one alternative to having your tonsils out, although I correctly had the feeling that the doctors would just do it through your mouth, was that they would actually cut your throat open.

i used to think tampons were some kind of air freshener and whenever i saw one in my mom’s pocket book i would rip the plastic off and sit, waiting for a fresh scent to fill the room. i also would open them and leave full tampons and applicators around after pooping bc they’re air fresheners

When I was five, I was such a ditz that when I cried, I thought that the world really did become distorted (like how it looks through tears).

Up until I was *eleven*, I thought "anxiety" was just a word for any negative emotion, the reason being that a lot of my school peers thought I was afraid when I was actually sad/angry.

When I was a little girl, I used to believe I could die because of a cream. My dad had told me so because I had to put cream on my feet and I wanted to put this cream in my mouth.
Growing up I realized it was a flammable cream

when I was a kid I did everything with both hands: even when I could do something with one hand, I should do it over with my other hand. this came from the believe that if I only used my dominant hand, the other would feel wronged and do something to me....no idea where I got this from
