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.
My mum used to always remind me when i was little to clean behind my ears when i was in the bath otherwise i would have spuds (potatoes) grow behind my ears lets say ever since i make sure i clean behind them
My great grand mother told me that if you eat your own earwax, then you will become a mute.
I still haven't tested it out yet.
I used to believe that a person's soul was an actual "thing" that lived in the body from the top of the chest to the torso. Rectangular in shape with rounded corners.
My brother used to believe that for my father to take his false teeth out he pressed a button in his mouth and then held out his hand and they would shoot out of his mouth into his hand!
I used to believe that people's teeth were like shark's teeth; that they just kept a new set available for when the next ones fell out or were pulled, the next tooth would grow into the space left, ad infinitum. I thought that the tooth fairy would really give me a lot of money when my adult incisors came out, because they were so big when compared to the others. I was quite upset when I found out that the second set was all you could get, and when they fell out, it was time for dentures. (I didn't want any of those, because my grandmother said hers hurt all the time.)
I used to think that each time your heart beat that your blood made a complete trip around your body. it therefore must move very fast inside of you, i reasoned, and was terrified of cutting myself or scraping my knee for fear blood would just spray out
I was in the nursing home with my great grandma one time and I saw her teeth in a jar. They were just floating there, so I come up to my grandma ( My great grandma's kid) and said, " Grandma can you help me pull my teeth out they won't move when I yank on them!!" I was about 4-5 years old.
I was half listening to lamb chop, and they said something about an egg turns into a chicken, but I thought it said a leg, and for the longest time I had this huge phobia that my legs were randomly going to turn into chickens and walk away.
When I was young, I saw some guys who were bodybuilders in the 80s and they had a lot of body hair. I heard my mom and some of my school teachers comment on them, saying, "Wow, look, they have a lot of muscles". I thought that "hair" only referred to the hair on top of your head, and that the word "muscles" was referring to their coincidental abundance of body hair. I asked them what "muscles" were, and they said that "muscles make you strong" and that I would get more muscles as I got older. I was with my Dad at the mall and saw a guy with a lot of body hair (not muscular though) and I said, "Dad, look- that guy has a lot of muscles!" and my Dad's feelings were hurt. He said, "Don't you think I have a lot of muscles?" he didn't have much body hair. I said, "I don't know." His feelings were hurt. One day, I grew a long hair on my arm and showed my Mom. I said, "Look at my big muscle!" and she laughed and said, "That's a hair!" and then I understood.
Up untill i was about 5, I believed that if you unscrewed your nipple, your spirit will come out!
Not me But my brother thought that people with different coloured skin had different coloured blood. like people with dark skin had darker blood than people with lighter skin! hes 14!! LOL
When I was 6 I used to believe that my "exercises" lived in a door in my leg and before I did any sport I had to open the imaginary door and afterwards I had to put them all back.
I used to believe that your 'guts' were these green glowsticks covered in slime that floated around in your stomache. All I know is that I got that idea from some movie. I don't know which movie.
i thought that you had like a box or something inside you to hold your soul for the longest time
I used to think my forehead was actually called a three-head.
I didn't know adults had teeth. I thought adults teeth fell out, just like baby teeth, and then they had to get dentures. Both of my parents had dentures. I just thought some adults had really ugly dentures.
My aunt & Grandmother used to tell me that whenever you were lying, your tongue would turn black. Whenever something was broken or missing in the house; they'd gather all of the extended family and tell the kids to stick out their tongues. I was told on several occasions that I had the dreaded "black tongue".....I would look in a mirror; no black tongue....and I thought I was not seeing what my grandma was seeing. I guess it was a way to get someone to admit wrongdoing....but I admitted to breaking my grandmother's desk just to make her leave us alone.
I used to believe a tastebud represented one food you liked.
