When I was little, a boy at school told me that the white dots that sometimes appear on fingernails were caused by lying. From then on, I was wary of people with injured fingernails. When they developed on my nails occasionally I would worry that everyone would know I had told a lie. I grew up to be very honest!

When I was 10, my mom would give me half a women's vitamin a day. My 12 year old brother made fun of me, so she made him take the other half. An hour and a talk with both my mom and my dad later, my brother was finally convinced that taking a women's vitamin wasn't going to turn him into a woman.

When I was around four, my mom overheard my little brother ask me "What is the difference between boys and girls." I told him I would show him. My mom trailed nervously behind US as I lead him to a mirror. Imagine her relief when I answered "Girls have barrettes in their hair."

When my friend was little, she believed that her forehead was called a forehead because she was four years old. She thought that when she turned five, it would become a fivehead, then a sixhead, a sevenhead, and so on.

My little brother was only nine when the movie G-Force came out. He liked the movie and always talked about it, but consistently called it "G-Spot". The looks on our parent's faces when he screamed "I wanna go see G-Spot again!" were hilarious.

Watching Tom n Jerry Cartoons I believed that your limbs can grow back if lost in an accident. I even convinced a classmate of mine who lost her fingers in an accident that they will grow back soon and she had nothing to worry about.

When I went to get my ears pierced I cried because I thought the lady was going to stand across the room and point the piercing gun at me from there. If she missed, it could land anywhere-- my nose, my eye. I was eight.

I used to believe a mans private parts looked like 3 balls stacked on one another, like a snowman, due to boys talking about their "balls". I was shocked and confused when I took my first health class and learned differently.

When I was a child, in the 80's, I asked my father why radio stations sometimes came in clearer when I stood near or touched the antenna. He explained that we all had a metal plate in our heads and that the closer we stood to the radio, the stronger the signal would get. I believed this up until I was 13, when I was finally set straight after I told my teacher about it one day in science class.

When I was little, my cousin told me my moles on my skin would eventually turn into actual moles that would claw out of my skin. I was afraid of my own moles for the longest time!

As a kid I used to believe when a body part fell asleep it was growing. It took me a while to realize that if that were true I would be something like 10 feet tall.

When I was younger, I was told I had a long tongue a lot. One day, I accidentally touched my uvula with my tongue. I actually convinced myself that I had just licked my brain, because that is one of the few body parts inside of me that I had heard about because I was only in preschool. One day, I was at some local store, and I told my mom, "Mom, I just licked my brain!" My mom responded "That is impossible darling." She made me really sad because I thought I could do something no one else could do. But I would not let her stop me from being unique! It was one day that I wanted to see myself lick my brain in front of the mirror that I learned my mom was right.

Until I was about 4, I believed that those biceps grown-ups talked about where placed on the elbow, and that that was the only measurment of how strong a person was. I dreamt of having huge, long elbows when I grew up.

I was scared of ever getting braces because I thought that the orthodontist would actually drill holes straight through your teeth to put them in, and that it would be extremely painful. Not until I was told I would need braces, at the age of 15, did I look it up and realize that the brackets were actually glued to your teeth and there was no invasive surgery involved!
