I loved yogurt and Mom always bought Knudsen's Lemon Yogurt. Of course I had no idea there were other flavors or makers so it simply became Knudsen Yogurt. Then I saw a TV show where a witch needed "Eye of newt" as part of her potion. I figured out right there and then I was eating newts and yogurt. Newts are yummy!

At a diner when the waiter would say "soup or salad?" i thought he was saying "super salad" and i always wanted to see what a super salad was and how it was different from a regular one.

When I was young, my grandmother used to cook dinner every night. Whenever she said "This came from scratch", I thought scratch was a friend of my grandmother's that I had never met. I would always ask my family who scratch was but they just gave me a blank stare. When I hit about 7 or 8 years old, I finally figured out what scratch meant. No wonder they looked at me with that blank stare.

I used to believe that hotdogs were worms that were fed a lot of paper so that they could get bigger and bigger. I have not touched a hotdog until after I was 14-15.

Until I was a teenager, I believed that vegetarians ate only vegetables. Once I read a book where a vegetarian ate a candy bar, and I was like, "Look, this author is so bad, he doesn't even remember his character is a vegetarian!" My mom had to set me straight... :|

My sister told me the ductwork in a restaurant was a big vacuum tube that would clean the uneaten food off my plate. My mom was pretty irritated when she found out why I wasn't cleaning my plate. I really wanted to see that vacuum tube come down!

When i was in the first grade, my friend told me that curly fries were pig tails, so that i wouldn't eat mine. I would give them to her to eat. Four years later when i was about 10 i realized that she told me that just to eat MY fries.

I used to believe that Tabasco was used to punish people who misbehaved by putting it in their food. At one point, I was punished for saying a bad word by having a drop of Tabasco sauce fed to me.

I grew out of it, and am now willing to use hot sauce in nearly everything. Is there a hate-to-love thing going on here? I think there's a connection.

When I was little I use to believe that Ms.Butterworth could actually talk. So when I poured the syrup on my waffles and she didn't speak, I grew frustrated. My older sis told me that she died inthe shopping bag on the wayhome. I cried for days after that! :)

I used to think that baby chicks were removed from the eggs we eat, replaced with yolk and whites, then glued back together. Since I didn't understand the idea of conception yet, it was the only explination!!

I am 25 years old and I just found out that Key Lime Pie is not made with kiwi's and lime, but actually a yellowish lime that grows in South Florida called a key lime. It made sense to me that "Key" was obviously short for kiwi.

I am very dissapointed, because the only reason I liked Key Lime pie was because of the kiwi...

Yesterday my 12 year old daughter informed me that they now make popsicles for adults only. I told her that popsicles were for everyone, not just kids. Then I realized what she was talking about. The "shards-o-glass" anti tobacco commercial? She thought it was a real commercial for real "adults only" popsicles.

When I would go to restaurants I thought the people in the back would eat the food i didn't. So I would never eat all my food, so they could have some.

When I was little my mom told me cashews were named after Johnny cash and his shoes. I believed her for awhile and when I asked her years later she told me she had never told me that.

When I was little I asked my dad what the HOOTERS (the restaurant) was. He told me its where you go see the owls. I found out when I was 17 that was not the case!

When I was little I heard my mom say she had lost her serial code and therefore could not register some software on her computer. Wanting to help, I ripped all of our boxes of cereals apart, waiting for a cereal code to fall out.

I used to think that if I mixed my ice cream around until it was liquid and then baked it, it would turn into a cake.
