When I was 21 and expecting my first child, the ob/gyn asked if I wanted to breastfeed my baby. I said that I wouldn't mind the breastfeeding, I just couldn't stand the thought of him poking a hole in my nipples with a needle.

I thought there were m&ms inside my body that worked much like cells, except for me to grow they stood on ladders and painted new skin from the inside. I guess the old skin would come off and I would somehow be bigger.

When I was real little I use to think that if you talked too much your vocal cords would run out of cords and you couldn't talk anymore. So I was a very quiet child for a long time.

When I was a little kid, I shared a room with my older brother. At one point I had a cold and was disturbing his sleep by all my hacking and coughing.

Frustrated, he thus told me this whopper: That I had a little puppy living inside me and that I also had a formidable alligator in there too. Every time that I coughed the alligator would bite at that puppy, so if I wanted the puppy to live, I had to quit coughing.

I didn't REALLY believe him entirely. But I did try to stiffle my coughs and began to imagine places in my body where the puppy could hide.

When I was little my dad told me that when you lied your tongue would turn black. For years when I would like my dad would ask that I stick out my tongue just a little then he knew I was lying.

I used to think that if you just kept your mouth closed when you burped, no one could hear you. It wasn't till I was married that my wife told me she could hear. I hate now to think of all the dates I must have ruined in COLLEGE where I let out a belch, but had a smile on my face cause my mouth was closed!

When I was little every time I got the hiccups my grandma would tell me that I got them because I didnt wipe good enough when I went to the bathroom! Needless to say everytime I got the hiccups I would run to the restroom to clean myself thinking that would make them go away, and when they didnt I would be so emberrassed thinking that everyone would think I was not cleaning right.

When I was a kid (1950s) I used to believe that anything you wanted to do that was any fun would either put your eye out or give you lock-jaw according to my parents

When I was little I used to think that if one of your nose hairs came out then there now was something in the world that you cant smell anymore.

When I was young my mother told me that hiccups made me grow taller so, whenever I ever had the hiccups, I didn't try to stop them because I wanted to be tall. I would even measure myself to see how much taller I'd gotten. (It didn't work, by the way.)

I used to believe that when I changed the quality and characteristics of sounds I heard by clinching my teeth or covering my ears I was changing the sound for everyone. I always worried that if I did it too often or with too many people around someone would figure out it was me and Id get in trouble.

In order to get me and my older brother to "cover our mouths when we sneezed," our mother told us that "the germs from a sneeze travel all over the world within one second." My brother and I spent the next several days faking sneezes, after which we would hollar out "ONE!" Finally, we were told to knock it off!

you know how people can burp on command? Well i used to believe that if you did that too many times, your stomach would explode. It was pretty sweet.

My Mummy used to tell me that freckles were angel kisses and I used to tease my sister because she never got them and I always did!

I used to think that "Butterfly Kisses" were when you rubbed noses with another person, until my mom told me it's when people 'Kiss' eachother with their eyelashes.

You know how, when rub your eyes really hard, you can sort of see swirls of color? I used to be convinced that when I was rubbing my eyes I was making fireworks go off inside my head. I would rub my eyes just for fun.

I used to believe, that if I yawned at the same time someone else yawned, we were automatically the same age. Don't ask me why or how, I just believed it happened.
