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.
I thought your fingers would grow back if they got cut off
I used to believe that my shoulder blades were angel wings under my skin and when I died they would pop out and I would become an angel.
I used to believe that armpits were called "monkey holes" because I'd heard my step brother say that. So I would seriously call armpits "monkey holes."
When i was a kid my sister told me that little people lived under your fingernails and that if it ever came off they would die. i still get wierded out when people pick at their nails.
My mother had dentures from just shortly after she got out of high school. Therefor I grew up watching her take her teeth out every night and of course she explained that she got them when her teeth fell out.
Until I was 10 years old I thought everyone's teeth just fell out at a certain age and then you got dentures.
I was really bummed when I found out the truth. I'd had big plans to get an extra set for myself with fangs.....
My cousin and I are 11 days apart. She and I were always competing in everything together. As we started to develop, a friend of the family told us, if we ate a lot of carrots our boobs would grow. According to the friend, that was why carrots were pointy. My cousin and I would eat a bag of baby carrots every day or 2. To this day our ongoing joke is that she must have ate more carrots than me.
I used to believe that when your foot was falling asleep, your brains were actually falling down into your foot.
I believed until I was about 14 that when you got electricuted your skeleton really showed...too much TV I guess
When I was around 4 or 5 I was convinced that you would weigh less if you sucked in your stomach on the scale.
