My fingers got squashed a couple times when i was very little, and so I knew that it made you cry. I would bite my baby dolls' fingers, because that's how I got them to cry, and then I would shush them.

When my parents brought my little brother home, he looked like a baby doll to me ... and yes, he certainly did cry like my dolls did. But he wouldn't shush like I wanted him to, and I got in DEEP TROUBLE for biting him!

When I was younger I used to think there were lights in my body because people would always say, "I'll punch your lights out." So one day I asked my mom, "Do we have lights in our body?"

i used to belive that i had THREE tubes @ the back of my throat. 1 4 food, 1 4 air and 1 for drink. i would try & see which tube the food & drink went down but just got confused wen they seemed 2 go down th same way. & of corse if something went down the wrong way food went down the drink hole and drink went down the food hole.

My dad used to name different "tickle" areas: underarm was a "twillie", behind the knee was a "twasco", and side was a "hambone." I was seriously 14 before I realized no one else called them as such. I'm sure I got a few puzzled looks when I would tell people to quit touching my twillie.

I tried to wrap my head around "where babies come from" at an early age...too young, I suppose to understand the legitimate process, so when I asked my mother about it, she said all babies are little angel gifts from God. I spent the first six years of my life convinced that my two shoulder blades were wing stubs...the portion of wing that remained when my wings rotted off.

I use to get really sea sick and puke on boat rides. My dad said when I got my "sea legs" it wouldn't happen anymore. I asked him how will I know I have sea legs? And he said "when I get hair on my legs". Now at 30, I have some damn hairy legs that I shave daily and I still puke on boats.

When I was 5 I lost my first tooth. I thought that when I woke up I would have my tooth back in my mouth. When I woke up (to my surprise) I didn't have another tooth in my mouth. I started crying.

My brothers told me that if you pinched your nose and closed your mouth, you could breath out your ears. They would show me, it looked so easy, but I could never do it!

When I was little I was really shy.
So when someone came over I'd hide my toes,
because I thought they were a private part.

(Just so this makes sense I'm a girl)

When I was about five we had to small dogs that walked all over us. I had observed, many times, that my dogs would walk on my dad and he would say, "My Nuts!"...So one day our little terrier did the same thing to me in the same spot so I said "My Nuts!"

Needless to say I got a few weird looks from my sisters and mother explaining that I didn't have "nuts"

Oh so smart...
