Growing up back east, we often had cold-cut sandwiches of tongue. It was my mother's favorite. One day I asked her, "Mom, why do they call it "tongue" - that's kind of funny, don't you think?" When she told me that it really was sliced tongue from a cow, I stopped eating it. Years later I realized it was because I couldn't bear the thought of tasting something that was tasting me back!
When I was about 8 years old, my mom sent me to the hardware store to buy some cheesecloth. That day she made cheesecake. And for the longest time I would not eat cheesecake because I believed there was cheesecloth in it.

My wife gets a real kick out of this, when I was young I believed that if you ate frozen bread you would get worms. She uses frozen bread to cool soup for the kids.

When I was five or six my dad told me that if I ate the hole in the donut I would get a hole in my belly and the donut would come out. I loved donuts and would eat as close to the hole as I could with out breaking it. I did this for about five years even after many people including my dad told me it was not true. I remember being very scared the first I ate the entire donut.
