I thought you have to have pointy feet like a Barbie in order to wear high heels. So at night in bed I would try to keep my feet in this position, so that I can wear high heels when I'm older.

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!

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.

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!

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 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.

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.
