I used to call the crust of bread "the bone" and I would tell my Mom "Take the bone off my bread" or if she didn't and I had to I'd set it on my plate and say "I don't want the bone"
At around age 5 my best friend Christy told me that the crust of bread can cut your tongue. I still never eat the crust of any bread or pizza. I can't get the idea that my tongue is going to be sliced with tiny razor-like wounds out of my head.
My dad use to tell me that eating the crust will make you be able to whistle. I whole heartedly beleived this until I was in Jr, High!!!!! I still dont like the crust and I still cant whistle.
When I was about 12 years old my friend's mum told me that if I ate bread crusts my breasts would grow bigger. It didn't work, and so I still don't eat them.
When I was little my mom used to tell me to eat my crusts because they were the “best part” and “good for you.” By this I thought she meant that the crusts actually had more vitamins and nutrients than the rest of the bread. I didn’t care though; I still wouldn't eat my crusts.
when I was little, my mom told us that the ends of the loaf of bread (you know the ones with all the crust) were good luck so we wouldn't complain about eating them. i believe that till i was about twenty.
when i was 5 through i guess 8 (im 13 now) i thought eating your crust helped you learn to whistle my mom told me that and because my big sister could whistle i desperately wanted to it worked on me but not my youger sister lol and the weird part is when i did eat it i learned how to whistle 2 days later and i loved crust ^_^
My dad told me that if I ate my crusts it'd put hairs on my chest. As I am female I didn't want a hairy chest, so I never ate the crusts
My grandmother told me eating bread crusts made your hair grow. Didn't get me to eat them though, since I was at the age where my only interest in hair was avoiding going to get it cut.
My mother used to always tell me that if I ate the crust of my bread it would make me be able to whistle really well.
I still can't whistle to this day.
I used to believe that the crust and the bread were two seperate things.
When my brother was young I told him if he ate the hole around the doughnut he would die.
To this day, he's 34 now, he leaves a small round crust so that he doesn't eat the hole =)
I used to (and still do) bite my nails. I also used to really hate the crust on bread - the top part that has a kind of bittery gross flavour. One day my sister and her friend were babysitting me and I refused to eat my crust. My sister's friend told me that the crust had some stuff in it that helped hair and nails grow. I believed her, of course. The crust is different from the bread so I figured they put something on it to make it crustier. I believed it until about 10th grade, when I actually stopped and thought about it, and realised it was a silly idea. I felt pretty stupid.
When I was in 1nd grade, I was at lunch with my close friend. My sandwich had crusts and her didn't. I asked why her sandwich looked like that. She pointed at my sandwich and mocked barfing. she said," My sandwich is clean. Do you know crusts are brown because they have DIRT on them?"
I started crying and spit out my sandwich. I belived that until I was 3rd grade. I asked my science teacher about it and she wouldn't let me live it down! :P
i used to believe that if you ate loads and loads of crust from bread it would make you have BIG boobies.
I thought the end pieces of bread had no crust. I hated crust, so I'd always ask for those pieces.
Later, I learned that those pieces were pretty much just "crust," and I wouldn't eat them anymore. Amazing how the taste of something changes once you know what it really is!
My mom told my brother that if he ate the crust on bread his hair would turn curly!! Of courase he didnt believe her and ate the crust anyways(he loves the crust). Now he is 14 and his hair is curly 8D
My mother, rest her soul, would tell me when I was young to be sure to eat the bread crust, because that's where the vitamins were. It took me several years before I figured that one out. My wife and children get a kick out of that story. Maybe I'll try that one on my four year old grand-daughters, it might work!
My brother told me that there was a crust compartment where monsters lived and if I didn't eat my crusts I would naver be strong enough to beat the monsters in a fight.
my mom used to tell me that the crust of the bread was healthier than the bread in an attempt to make me eat it. i never really ate it anyway
