I used to think that the noises my stomach were from little people in my stomach talking to eachother.

I used to think that my body was filled with really tiny workers; sort of like Oompa-Loompas. They controlled everything I did. I thought they helped me poop when I needed to go. So they pushed it, when it was too hard I even whispered, "Work harder, I need help!" They also painted pictures of my memories and thumbtacked or sticky-tacked them in the walls of my brain.

Kinda weird...

When I was little I had a pet frog that my mom let go in the middle of the night. I woke up the next day with a scratchy throat and a horse voice. My mom said I "had a frog in my throat". I thought I had swallowed my frog in the middle of the night.

When i was young, my brother told me that if I wanted to learn to wissle, I had to sit on the toilet and eat Dutch crisp bakes (rusks), and then try it, so I did.....you're mouth is so dry then, that it will never happen, but that i figured out a few days later...well, he also made me belief that you can actually eat soap....so I did...it was terrible, even with cleaning your mouth afterwards...with water!

I used to think that hiccups happened because there were little men in my abdomen that had big sludge hammers and would hit my stomach!

I also used to think that when I had to pee, it was because there were little men in my bladder waiting to get out! :)

I used to think men were not allowed to cry. Especially Native American men for some reason (it may have had something to do with the sternness of Kokoum in Pochahontas). When my younger brother would cry I would tell him this and he would try to stop because he wanted to be a man.

I used to believe that, when you hummed, no one else could hear you. I would go around making all sorts of ridiculous sounds and making up little songs.

I wondered why people kept staring at me in public.

When my daughters were little, like three or four, I devised a clever plan to teach them not to whine. When they used a whiny tone of voice I would cock my head and say, "Gee I almost thought I heard someone say something. But I can't hear a whiny voice, only normal tones of voice. I hope if anyone is trying to say something to me that they use a normal tone of voice because if they don't I'll never know what they want."
They both believed this as I made it a rule to NEVER pay attention to whining. (I would listen when they changed their tone and spoke without whining)

Niether child whined after the first few times!

When I was younger, I saw a TV show where there was a guy who had passed out and was lying on the ground. A girl got down and started feeling his wrists and his neck for a moment, then shouted, "I found a pulse!" and the guy woke up. From then on, I thought for certain that if you just touched someone's wrist for a while, you could find a pulse and save their life. I wondered why paramedics sometimes weren't able to save people's lives, if it was that easy.

When I was young my, very superstitious, grandmother would tell my sister and I that everytime we hiccupped a drop of blood would fall off our heart. Everytime i got the hiccupps I would panic and hold my breath or eat a spoon full of suger (upside-down) until they went away, paranoid that my heart would dry out and I would die from them. I still think about it when I feel them coming on!

I use to believe that little blue men worked and lived inside everyones bodies. They would "build", and that's how we would grow. I thought they had hammers, ladders, all things you need for construction.

I used to believe that when my foot fell asleep there were ants crawling up and down under my skin. I still call it "ants" whenever anything on me falls asleep.

When I was about 6, when I got thirsty, I would swallow the saliva in my mouth because I thought it was water and that it was enough to hydrate me

When I was seven, I used to believe that when a people said they "didn't drink" that they did not consume any liquids. I was pretty much perplexed, but figured it might be possible to get enough water from vegetables, fruits and other food products.

I used to believe that when I blinked I would miss something important so I would try my hardest to never blink, because I didn't want to miss anything.
This stopped after my mother asked me what I was doing and she told me the truth.

When I was younger when I would point at someone I would point with my hand under my eye. My dad could never figure why I pointed like that, he realized from my perspective that it looked like people were pointing with their hand under their eye.
