I used to believe that at the tops of my nostrils (inside my nose) there was a man who would go back and forth to each nostril. He had like clothes and a beard and everything. He had a shovel and would dig for buggers and mucus behind my nose and pour it into each nostril like he was mining coal or shoveling snow.
My mom told me never to cut my nails after dark cause "its bad luck". I kinda still believe it even if it is stupid:-)
When I was younger, about 6, I used to believe that my testicles were a spare pair of eyeballs, in case something happened to the set in my head.
I was nine when I started getting boobs...one day out of the blue i finally noticed them (wasnt very observant) and I started crying and freaking out. My cousin who is one year older then me found me and asked what was wrong. I told her that I was getting boobs and therefore, would never be able to sleep on my stomach again, because if I did it would be painful. She then explained to me that her mom slept on her stomach all the time. I then got so excited that I decided to do a bellyflop on the bed in celebration....NEVER AGAIN! -_-
When I was little my grandmother told me that when I lost my baby teeth they would be gone forever and I would have to walk around toothless for the rest of my life. I'm told I was extremely distraught over this and balled my eyes out.
When I was around the age of 5 or 6, I began to wonder what would happen if your head was cut off. I had no idea what was inside. I knew it would be red, but I was unsure of the consistency--gooey, runny, or something more along the lines of the inside of a watermelon (which was my best guess at the time). I was very curious, so I asked my mom, but she was shocked and disgusted and refused to discuss it with her young daughter. I spent many years pondering this every once in awhile, but somehow eventually figured it out (not through my own experiments!).
I used to think that everyone had multiple hearts; wherever I felt a pulse, I assumed there was a heart pumping blood there.
I thought nipples disappeared at a certain age because Barbie never had them.
I used to believe that if you breathed in too hard your lungs would stick together and stay that way. At least that's what my older sister told me.
I freaked out when my mom told me that teeth fall out after I lost my first baby tooth and assumed that every other body part would fall off and I would grow new ones.
I used to believe in something called "foot suffocation"- where your foot falls off because it's been suffocated in a plastic bag for too long. I think a neighborhood boy convinced me of this...oddly, I never considered the fact that people wear shoes everyday without "foot suffocation" occurring!
I used to believe that the inside of my body looked like bologna.
My daughter is 4 and no matter how many times I tell her otherwise, she still thinks her boobies are called "paddles". I don't know where she got this concept.
If you could kiss your elbow, you would change genders...forever.
I used to think that fingernails went under your skin all the way up your arms and down your back and when your fingernails grew thats where it was coming from
I used to belief that the birth mark on my dad's leg was where he spilled his coffee... EVERY morning.
When I was little, I thought that when you broke your arm or leg, it literally broke off of your body. (The cast was there to hold in back on, you see.) I remember being absolutely terrified when my grandpa broke his arm when I was about 5 or 6 - I thought they'd have to glue his detached arm back on!
My grandma wore dentures, and when I was five she told me that if I opened my own mouth wide enough my teeth would pop out too. I spent hours trying to get my teeth out of my mouth.
when i was little, thinking about growing taller made me sad because that meant i would be farther away from my feet, who happened to be my very good friends at the time.
My cousin told me that he had a frog in his knee then he flexed his knee cap so it would twitch and that sealed the belief.
