When I was about seven, I thought that whenever I was thinking about something I had to say 'cut' before I could move on to some other thought (like a director moving on to the next scene) My family thought I was weird because I said 'cut' all the time for no apparent reason.

My dad always used to tell me to cover my mouth when I yawned. When I asked him why, he said, "Because people can see what you had for breakfast if you don't cover your mouth." I believed that for a long time!

at about 4 i thought my stomach was the large region under my chest, like many kids. However i thought it was so big because it had a ferris wheel in it, with half of egg shells for each food, and when, say broccoli came down my throat, i thought a cup,labeled too, would go up, catch it, then go deposit it at the hole at the bottom, that looked very much like the garbage disposer hole in the sink.

My mom told be that when you got the hiccups, it meant a little elf was jumping around in your stomach. I tried to calm him down by sitting still or laying down but the hiccups wouldn't stop!

I used to believe that ants walked inside your body and that's what caused an itch.

When I was little, I though there was this little thing inside you that kind of resembled Plankton from Spongbob that had another little thing inside that, and that one had another inside that and so on and when you ate, it would go down your throught and fall into the little thing's mouth and he would swallow it, and then the food would fall into the other little things mouth and so on and so on. Then when the food finally got to the last little person, it got fatter and that was why you grew.

When I was very little, if ever I burped or farted or had snot running from my nose, my mother's reaction would be to say, "Charming" in a haughty voice. Being too young to understand sarcasm, I thought "charming" meant something like "really disgusting". So I was always really confused by stories with Prince Charming in them. I mean, why would Cinderella marry a guy who burped and farted all the time?

When I was little and someone sneezed, I would always hear someone say "Bless you" So I thought that's what came out when you sneezed. One day, I sneezed and snot got on my hand. I went to my mom and said "Momma! I got bless you on my hand!" It took everything she had not to roll on the floor from laughing

I had a teacher who told my best friend you could breathe out of your tear ducts. To her disapointment, she could not.

I used to believe that when I breathed in and out, it was my mouth doing the work and not my lungs. And when I saw my chest expanding and retracting, I thought it was weird that it did the opposite of a balloon (when you blow, it expands) so I would try to suck in my gut or push it out and try and reverse the in/out process.

As a kid I used to believe that you had to vomit at least once a year to get rid of all the food you ate.

When I was very young, I observed a lady breastfeeding a baby and asked my mother what she was doing. She explained to me that the mother produces milk to feed to the baby... As my dad always had a cup of coffee in the morning, I naturally assumed that this meant the father must somehow produce coffee for the baby.

To this day I still want coffee flavoured nipples.

I used to believe that grown men never ever cried, because I would never see my dad cry. I was quite shocked when I saw a male teacher cry at my sister's graduation.

I used to believe that if I didn't think about something for long enough I would forget it.
My friend Jane told me in graphic biological detail how babies are made. I was 9, I knew she hadn't made it up because no-one could have an imagination that wild! I felt a little sullied by knowing and tried not to think about it so that I would forget it. Guess what? it didn't work. But as I get older, I'm 43 now, I find I don't have to try so hard, somedays I could forget my name.
