When I was 2 my younger brother was born. I remember waiting for his penis to fall off like his umbilical cord (after all mine did, RIGHT?). I even remember explaining to our babysitter that his umbilical cord fell off, so his penis needed to fall off too! How she managed to continue changing his diaper and not fall on the ground laughing, I'll never know.
For some reason, I used to think that porcelin and teeth were the same material. I wondered how they ever got enough teeth together to make a toilet.
My brothers told me that if you pinched your nose and closed your mouth, you could breath out your ears. They would show me, it looked so easy, but I could never do it!
Up until i was about 8, I thought that your heart was like a locket and you had pictures of the people you love in it. My mom thinks its adorable.
I believed until I was about 14 that when you got electricuted your skeleton really showed...too much TV I guess
I use to believe that being brainwashed meant that someone actually took out your brain, washed it with a sponge and soap and water, then put it back in and sewed you up.
when I was young I heard about people getting very bad concussions and how they needed to be woken up every so often or they could slip into a coma. So, I believed that no matter how minor a concussion, if you fell asleep, you'd go in a coma and die. I finally got a minor concussion at 16 and learned that I didn't have to keep myself awake.
When I was a little girl, I used to believe we had to run to be rich but as result I got exercises to develop my thigh muscles and not to make money.
I used to think that the human body was a big bag full of blood and that our skin was like a water balloon, holding it all in. When a person got a cut or scrape, it was as if the balloon had sprung a leak!
When I was little.My older sister Silvia told me,that if her and I both wished really hard we would grow a tail of the animal of our choice.My mom told her that.My sister and me both wanted the tail of a fox.:) When we got older we realized it would proably never happen.So we stoped and we got pretty bumed.
when i was about 5 or 6 i believed that all women had feet shaped like barbie
doll feet. if you have ever taken a look at them, they are permanently shaped
to fit into high heels.
I called every body part my elbow. For example if my leg hurt I would say my elbow hurt.
One day i had hurt my head really bad and ran in screaming to my mom. She asked me what was wrong, and I told her that i had hurt my 'Two-Head'. She asked me if I meant my four head, and I told her that i wasn't four yet. I still get teased about it to this day.
I was a very forgetful child and my parents would often say to me that I had a head like a sieve. I thought a sieve was some kind of weird insect that had an incredibly small brain and had no room to remember things and the things that it did remember leaked out of the antenae. The insects were red.
When I was very little my mom and I would sit on the floor with her behind me. Then she would start picking through my hair on the back of my head. She would get real excited and say "I found it! She found the hole in my head where she would then take out a pieces Chicklets gum! I used to go crazy trying to find the hole in my head where the gum lived!
When i was little i used to think that my foot was a "naughty part" that no one else was supposed to see.
When I was little I had b to have my appendix removed. I asked my mom and dad what the appendix did, they said that nobody knew. My cousin later told me that it was my soul, and you needed a soul to go to heaven.
i used to believe that my feeling lived in my knee.
so naturally,when ever some one said their feelings were hurt, id go run and grab a [patterned] bandaid, and put it on their knee.,
or if i couldnt reach their knee, on their shin.
When I was about six, I had the theory that if you ever broke a bone it was replaced by one of your smaller "bones" (actually just ridges) that covered your Adam's apple. It would fall into your stomach and expand, then float to wherever needed repair. When you were old and all of your bones had been broken, you would no longer be able to feel your Adam's apple because all your bones had been used. I believed that seriously and told my dad about it, who didn't discourage me from the idea until I was in third grade.
When I was younger my mom used to look behind my ears and say " oh my gosh you have potatoes growing behind there." I literally thought I had little potatoes growing behind my ears up until I was about 9 when she told me it was actually dirt.
