When I was trying to go to sleep and heard my blood pumping in my ears, I thought it was little men in my pillow making sand. I pictured them in a little factory in there and it freaked me out. I remember telling a babysitter that I couldn't sleep because of the men making sand in my pillow. Shw must of thought I was nuts.
I used to believe that the sound of my heart thudding in my head was the king and queen (of what I don't know) chasing me. This scared me for some reason, making the thudding of my heart go faster and faster which convinced me that they were about to catch me. Wonder I didn't have a heart attack at age 4.
As a kid I was told that a spoonful of peanut butter would cure hicups by somehow sticking to your ...uhhh lungs? It wasn't until fourteen when I automaticly went for a spoonful of peanut butter-placebo that I realized my leap in logic.
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.
when you get yourself worked up you can feel a pulse in your head and i used to think it was big foot coming... SO SCARY!!! im now 16 and still do sometimes lol
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?
I used to beleive that there were little men inside you body who pumped your heart, and made you breath etc.... I always wondered where they went to the bathroom.......
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.
when i was in year 6 (i'm british) my teacher told me that someone once thought if you get tired, your heart stops pumping.
i used to think my sister was cold blooded, because she used to say she took cold showers.
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.
