I didn't know about blood vessels until I was about 6. I thought that the human body was a blood sack with organs and bones.

At a family party recently, my seven-year-old cousin told me she could roll her eyes back in her head to see her brain. Playing along, I asked her what color it was. She informed me that it was red, white, and blue, because those are the colors of the flag in the country she lives in.

I used to believe that when evermy heart pounded too hard that you could see it push against your chest. This also led me to believe that it was trying to escape 'cause it worked too hard.

As we all know, placing a Sea Shell to your ear allows your to hear the sound of the sea. Following the explanation to me of the phrase "I need a word in your shell-like"; which means a word in your ear, I believed you could listen to someone's inner monologue by placing your ear to theirs. Apparently I became quite a pest trying to do this whenever I didn't understand what was going on.

Way before I learned left and right, I always worried because I thought your left and right would always be changing depending on what direction you faced. I thought it would be so confusing to remember which was your left and which was your right.

After witnessing my big brother losing a tooth, when I was 4, my dad let me in on a little secret. You start out with baby toes, but eventually you lose them and get your big toes.

I told my friends about it, and we all lived in fear that our toes were going to fall off!

My sister used to tell me that if I cracked my knuckles, then I would have fat knuckles when I grew up. It never stopped me though, and ironically, my knuckles are skinnier than hers!

when i was 3 or 4, i was told to shake-hand with my sis (elder) after a fight & was told to do so with my right hand. i noticed my sis shaking with her left hand (from my view) and thought all the time that women have right hand to their left & vice-versa.

sometimes, i felt my sis is a genius because she used to give directions to the cab-fellow from the man's point-of-view.

When I was very small, I absolutely believed that my brain was run by a bunch of very small men who lived inside (probably Oompa-Loompa-inspired). Each little man was in charge of a different thing; some of them ran my arms and legs, and others aimed my eyes, and so on. My memory was actually a very large set of little drawers (I had been very impressed by the card catalog at the library), and one special little man knew where everything was. So when I wanted to remember something, he went and got it out of the drawer for me.

I used to belive that there were tiny human beings inside my body that would make everything work. I had imagined a huge computer room inside my brain with a hundred little men controlling all the information regarding my feelings and thoughts. I even pictured the little men pulling on ropes to make my eyes open and close.

There used to be an advert on tv were a child got run over and his mother, having seen this dropped the eggs she was carrying. The advert showed the eggs hit the ground and smash just after the child is hit so I used to think that people had eggs inside them rather than blood.
