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 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.
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.
i used to believe if i eat fish it would turn my stomach into a fishtank and make me turn into glass.

I used to think that the orange and green tictacs gave your special powers. the orange ones would make you stronger and the green ones would make you faster. so i used to eat some green ones and run around my lounge as fast as i could, then eat the orange ones and try to pick up the sofa. i wish it were true!
