I used to believe that you could literally waste your breath. If you talked too much, someday you would just run out of air and die.

When i was little i always thought that when you went to sleep you didn't breathe. Once, i was watching tv, and my mom fell asleep on the couch, i heard her breathing, looked at her, saw she was asleep and totally freaked out. At first i thought she was just pretending to sleep :D

When I was very young, a sinus problem made it so I often heard my heartbeat in my ears. I always feared that what I was hearing was the footsteps of Big Foot coming to get me. I'd lie under my covers scared to death every night.

My best friend Maggie's dad told her that if she ate bread crusts it would help her learn to whistle. She told me. So we would eat everyone else's bread crusts at lunch. I didn't like the bread crust much, but I ate it thinking it would help me whistle until I was way too old.. Like 13.

I used to think that everyone had a ball of hair wound tight inside their head. The ball would unwind and our hair would grow, but when there was no more ball of hair, you went bald. Everyone had different size balls of hair in their cranium and depending on how big your ball was, determined how long until you went bald.
