When I was little my mum told me that if I ate lots of satsumas I would get a lot more presents from Santa because satsumas are his favourite fruit.

I used to believe that cattail(bulrush) plants were where hot dogs came from. I tried cooking one before I realized that hot dogs do not in fact grow from plants.

When I was 4 or 5, I loved to read the ingredient lists on the backs of food packages, boxes, wrappers, etc. Something I saw very often was "Red no.1 Lake" or "Blue Lake".

Of course, it made perfect sense to me that they added an entire lake full of red or a lake full of blue.

What else could it mean?

When I was little, my Mum told me that any food we didn't eat at dinner went to a place called Leftover Land. (Later questioning, after I saw that it in fact was spooned into the bin, revealed that a wizard comes and removes it from the bin before transporting it to Leftover Land.)

She threatened that one day she was going to take us to Leftover Land, where we'd have to eat, finally, all of our associated leftovers.

I sometimes left behind the parts of the meal I liked best, so that when she finally took me I'd be able to have a good time.

When I was little, I thought that when someone said they were 'allergic' to a food that they just didn't like it, and that you could catch allergies like a cold. My best friend was allergic to eggs, so I decided I must be allergic to them too- at least the runny ones.

I used to believe that clouds were mashed potatoes and whenever we had mashed potatoes for dinner my mother would reach up (without our looking) and grab them.

I didn't know what a boiled egg was becuase my granma always use to make me them. So I use to say "Granma, can I have a fixten egg?" becuase it wasn't broken like a fried one! She use to encourage it!!!!

When I was little, I had weird names for food. I called peas "green ball catchers" and ice cream sandwiches "oaches." Weird!!

Ice cream is good:)

I used to call croutons "concretes" because they were so crunchy, I thought they were made of concrete.

One weekend when I was a little girl, I stayed at my aunt's house. One day that weekend she made salmon (the kind that comes in the can) and rice. This was the year I my teeth were falling out. While we were eating, I asked my cousin about the bones (at that time, I didn't know what they were!) that were looked over. He looked at me and smiled and said with a straight face, "They are teeth and if you eat them, your teeth will grow back!" so I wanted to eat salmon everyday so my teeth could grow back faster!

When I was younger and my family went out to Chinese food we always ordered several spicy dishes. Consequently I would drink a lot of water with the meal. On the way home from dinner I always needed to pee really badly. For YEARS I thought that there was some ingredient in fortune cookies that made people need to pee.

Until I was about 12 or 13 years old, I had never seen an olive anywhere other than in a cocktail. The first time I ate an olive, I was extremely surprised at the absence of a pimento, and the presence of a pit. That's right, I thought pimentos grew inside olives naturally.

My step father's name is jeff and his younger brother's name is justin. They are only a few years apart, and when they were younger, justin was very jealous of jeff. He would always say "well if it's Jeff Peanutbutter, then it should be Justin Jelly!!!"

of course... he didn't understand the real name was Jiff Peanutbutter..


Also, when my brother and I were younger, he called me sissy. He was about 3 or 4 so i was about 12 or 13 and we would often frequent a place called Cici's Pizza.

He also wondered why I got my very own pizza place!! :)

The first time my younger cousin encountered sprinkles were on Grandma's sugar cookies. Therefore, she calls them cookie rice.
