One of my uncles told me that fat people got that way by swallowing watermelon seeds. So every time I swallowed one I was terrified. Another uncle (yeah, great ones I have) told me that you got fat by swallowing gum, because it would blow into a bubble in your stomach. Needless to say, I was very careful when I chewed gum.
I used to have the hardest time with the concept of 'Sugar Free' chewing gum. I wasn't sure whether it meant you got free sugar with the gum, or if it was just extra sweet.
My friend went to this camp called 'Sugar Free Kids'. I had an especially hard time with that one.
As a child I would swallow my bubble gum when I was through chewing it. I didn't see the harm in it until my Grandmother caught me one day. She began to explain that if I were to swallow my gum that watermelons could possibly grow in my stomach. That was the last time I ever swallowed gum again. And, no, I never did grow any watermelons.
Remember how your parents told you that if you fell asleep with gum in your mouth, you would wake up and it would be in your hair? Well I used to believe that this occurred through a process of the gum seeping through the head and then coming out of your hair folicles. So, one night I fell asleep with gum in my mouth. I woke up at some time that night and became afraid that the gum would seep through my head and get in my hair, so I took it out and set it on my pillow. Needless to say, I woke up in the morning with gum in my hair.
my sister once told me that my eyeballs expelled air, so if i were to chew up some bubblegum and place it over my eye and blink a whole bunch, i could blow a bubble. i thought that would be the coolest thing ever so i tried it... needless to say, i had gum stuck in my eyelashes, and eyebrows for days... i will never forgive her for that...
one day i was chewwing gum before i went to bed and i almost ended up falling asleep so my dad came in and said hey i wouldnt chew that gum when you are slepping i asked why and he said that a little boy went to sleep and the gum grew and ate him. So ever since i never chewed gum at night.
I used to believe that if u swallowed too much gum all ur bones wood stick together and u wouldnt be able to move your arms and legs
I used to swallow my gum so one day my dad told me that when I swallow it, it would get stuck with all the other gum and form into a ball and stick to my organs and then the docors would have to surgically remove it. I still swallowed my gum anyway.. and still do!
When I was little, my mom would tell me that if I swallowed chewing gum, my stomach would stick together.

I am a big fan of chewing gum!!!when I was 4 or 5 I used to think that we can grow & plant chewing gum so I took 2 pieces & dig a small hole in the garden & buried them & used to water my future chewing gum tree everyday till I gave up & told myself it's much better & easier to buy chewing gum than to try to grow it :-) ?!!
I used to believe that chewing gum stayed in your stomach for seven years. At thirteen I decided I needed to loose weight and started swallowing gum to fill up my stomach so I'd feel full all the time and wouldnt want to eat food.
i always thought that if you swalled chewing gum you would turn into it.

I think this stemmed from the belief that when you swallow watermelon seeds you would grow a water melon in your stomach (which of course some evil grown up told me). Somehow I applied this theory to gum, but it was obvious that it wouldn't grow in my stomach..that would just be stupid! So instead I picked a perfect spot to plant my gum. Everyday I went out to water it waiting for it to sprout. I soon moved from that place but didn't give up on my tree. Iwould beg my mom to drive by even years later to see if my gum tree had grown. I really thought I was onto something...I mean imagine how much money you would save if you grew your own gum
i thought that those dried big glob of glue inside food wrappers were gum. i always peal them off and start chewing and wondered why they couldn't put a better taste there.
