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.

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 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."

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.

When I was little my mom told my brother and I that when you lie your tongue turns black. Whenever she thought we weren't telling the truth she would make us open our mouths so she could "inspect" our tongues. It was so smart because we would always confess before she even got the chance to look in our mouths. I think I was 10 before I finally realized my mom made it up. The woman is a genius because I never lied, and still don't to this day.

Whenever I lost a tooth my dad always told me to keep my tongue out of the empty space and a gold tooth would grow. I am yet to have any gold teeth, even though I kept my tongue out of the spaces until I was 12...
