When I was young and I sneezed but no one said 'bless you' and would quickly say 'Blessyoume' to bless myself.
I didn't realise that the saying 'Blessyoume' made no sense until I was 17 and my mum laughed at me for saying it.

I used to think that everyone had a limited amount of words they could use in their life (a limited amount of mouth movements, and a limited amount of sound), and so when you silently mouthed words, you were using up your mouth movements, and so in the end, you'd have extra sound you wouldn't be able to use.

I thought if you took a bunch of little baby steps when you walked you would walk faster than taking normal steps since you were stepping so much faster

I used to believe that hiccups were an ingredient in fizzy drinks, so when I got hiccups I thought it was because I had swallowed a hiccup from the drink :)

When I was 6, my 16-year-old cousin came to live with us. I am an only child so I looked up to her like a big sister. One time, I saw that her nails were clear and shiny. So I thought she let the water run over her nails and dried. I tried to do that many times but the water always ran off my nails. I was so upset!

When I was little, I used to believe we ran on batteries. I believed this until about 8 when I had asked when we needed to replace them and was told how the human body works.

When I was about 8, I used to believe that my right foot would get upset if I only washed my left foot so I would make sure both feet would get washed for the same amount of time and the same temperature of water.

When I was little my grandfather told me that if I didn't stick my tongue in the spot where my tooth was pulled it would grow in as a gold tooth. I was always disappointed because I never grew in a gold tooth. I also never could keep my tongue out of there!

When I was little I asked my mom "How do hiccups work?" She said "It's your lungs expanding." I took this to mean "It's your lungs getting bigger." I thought that when you were hiccuping, it meant you were getting bigger.

Someone once told me that if you kept your eyes open while you sneezed your eyes would pop out. After that my parents always saw me making the craziest faces trying to keep my eyes open while I sneezed.

My mother used to say every morning that she had to " go put her face on" meaning her makeup. One day I asked her that if she was going to put on her face then what was that on her head!
