Another thing my mother told me: bugs are very found of using your ears as restrooms and when there is wax in your ears it is actually "bug potty," as she called it. My mother was very weird.

When I was little, my cousin told me that bogies were dead brain cells. I believed him until the day I repeated this amazing fact in front of my high school biology class, who never let me forget it.

I thought that hiccups made you grow. Every hiccup streached your body a little bit, that is why babies would get them more than adults.

I used to think that when you waved to say "hello", you had your hand wide and waved it from side to side (like normal waving) and to say goodbye, you had to have your fingers together and wave your hand up and down. I never really wondered what would happen if you didn't...

Uh, dunno...

Once when I was little' I had my first dream. I ran into my mom's room shouting " Mommy, Mommy! When I closed my eyes I saw a story!" My mom didn't tell me about what this was until I was about 6.

For some reason I used to believe that if you HAD to swing your arms when you walk because if you didn't you would automatically stop...I spent a lot of time making sure my arms we're swinging, I was a warped little kid.

When I was, oh, 9 or 10, I first noticed that yawns were contagious. My logical mind figured out why: Yawns are invisible things, almost like spirits, that float around the world, and when they get the notion, they pry their way into someone's mouth. Then, they would find the next person they could, and pry into their mouth, and so on and so fourth. It took me until I was twelve for me to abandon that concept.

When I was little, my grandmother told me that if someone sneezed and you did not say "bless you", that their soul would leave their body. This haunted me and I would put my hands above my head whenever I sneezed to "catch my soul". Even as a superstitious teenager, whenever I sneezed and no one "blessed" me, I would raise my hands above my head non-chalantly!

i used to think that you could only sneeze so many times before you used them all up, then if you tried to sneeze your head would explode. i still hold my sneezes, just in case.
