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'
I used to think you could have a heart attack if you fell in love too deeply!
1*I used to believe that if you eat a bean its gonna grow up a tree in your stomach.
2*I uses to believe that if you cross your fingers its bad luck.
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 little I used to believe that we had a machine in the belly that was creating kisses and when someone didn't t give you one, it was because they had run out of kisses.
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
Having heard in church that we are all made of dust, I thought that I could gain weight by rubbing dust onto myself.
When I was younger, i used to think everybody was of the same family
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
i used to believe that if you pulled a funny face and the wind changed you would be stuck like it forever, my dad always told me this when i was younger hahah
When I was a kid, I used to believe that men could get pregnant. So whenever I see a fat man I would think he is pregnant.
So I'm male, when i was around 7/8 my older sister(13) convinces me i was going to start having periods when i was 18. I had no idea what they were but ran to my mum crying all the same
In 3rd grade (age 8/9) I thought that if I burped/talked/yelled/hocked loogies with my mouth closed that nobody could hear me. I'd sit there and openly yell at people right in front of them! When people told me to stop burping (I'd just learned to swallow air!) I was legitimately dumbfounded that they could hear me!
i used to think little worker bacteria would get on your teeth from your food and drill down, causing tooth aches and cavities.
as a child, I believed that if I put my legs behind my head, they would pop off at the joints in a great big bloody mess. I'm 17 now, and while I know much more about human anatomy, putting my legs up high still makes me irrationally nervous.
