one time when i was about 8 i used my mother's face cream (trying to be a grown up) and i got some in my eye and it hurt and stung. i told my brother about it and he told me i was going to go blind because of it. i didn't sleep all night and finally woke up my mom crying about how i would be blind before morning!

When I was little my older sister Silvia used to wear a black pirate patch over her right eye for fun.She always told me she lost her right eye in a bee bee gun accident.When I was 7yrs old she stoped wearing the patch for a while and I found out she was just joking about it.:) But to tell you the truth I actually thought it was cool having a big sister who woar an eye patch.lol

Because my mom and dad once told me that while they were shopping (I was about five or so) a woman had her eyes literally pop out and that this would happen to anyone who had big eyes. After a while they told me that I had big eyes and I shouldn't open them too wide or they'd pop out. It went so far that I was scared my eyes would pop out whenever I had a headache or my eyes hurt. Now I know it's not true.... At least I hope it's not...

I used to believe that if I closed my eyes and couldn't see anyone, then they couldn't see me either. I could never figure out why I was always found first when playing Hide and Seek!

I used to believe that if I couldnt see someone, they couldnt see me either. So when someone I didnt like would come over to speak to me, I would close my eyes.

My mother always told me that if I crossed my eyes, the elastic could snap and I'd be cross-eyed forever.

I used to believe that, when someone was crying her eyes out, or her heart out, that she really did and that I could find the eyes or heart (kind of like a red velvet pin cushion in a heart shape) in the room where it had happened.

i used to believe that the term "eye sockets" was literal -- and that eyes, by definition, plugged into your head like lamps plug into walls... i was always afraid that my eyes would pop out of my head and i wouldn't be able to plug them back in

I used to believe that if you couldn't see someone then they couldn't see you. If I didn't want someone to see me I'd close my eyes - boo it didn't work!

i used to believe that if i rolled my eyes while someone hit me on the back of the head, my eyes would stay that way. i tried like mad to get someone to hit me while i did that but no one would! i even tried to do it to myself, and when it didn't work i figured i wasn't hitting myself hard enough.

The first time I went on a roller coaster, my older brother told me that if I closed my eyes, the air pressure would suck them back into my head. So I had to do my frist roller coaster ride with my terrified eyes WIDE open for the whole trip!

When I was 5 at the beach with my parents, my dad got sand in his eye, so he took his eyeball out, cleaned it, and put it back in. I thought WOW, so thats how you clean your eyes. Years later I found out my Dad had a glass eye from a fireworks accident.

I used to believe that eyes where just like bubbles and if you where to touch them they would pop.

When I was little,about 5 or 6, I used to believe that if I shut my eyes no one could see me, or anything I did while my eyes were shut. So I'd break something and then shut my eyes thinking my mom couldn't see me and what I had just done. She would know it was me and not my sister because I would just stand there with my eyes shut, but I was so cute she never got mad at me and I never got punished. Sometimes I still like to pretend that when my eyes are shut I am invisible to all.

I believed that people who had blue eyes saw everything with a blue tint, and people who had green eyes saw everything with a green tint (kind of like sunglasses). I grew up in an urban area, where, let's say everyone had brown eyes - so they were the norm and could see all colors.

I used to think that if you flipped your eyelids inside out they would get stuck. I also used to think that rolling your eyes would cause them to get stuck in the back of your head.

I used to blieve that if you crossed your eyes and the wind changed direction, then your eyes would stay like that forever

I didn't, but my cousin Kev used to believe that if he closed his eyes, you wouldn't be able to see him anymore. So when he had bust something of yours, he'd shut his eyes to hide, which of course made it all the easier to give him bash in the gob.
