My cousin and I used to believe that if we ate enough food, we would get so big we could lay down in the streets and everyone in the world could jump on our stomaches like trampolines. Needless to say, our plates were usually clean.

My father told me that if I ate rhubarb, I'd grow hair on my chest. I thought this would be interesting and was disappointed when it didn't happen (I'm a woman now, and am still waiting)

I used to think coconuts were fruit. But one day, I was uncertain. So I walked up to my mother and asked her, "Mom, are coconuts fruits, or vegetables?" She just looked at me and said, "cocoNUTS?" I moment later I put two and two together. The sad thing is, I was 13.

Since I liked to eat pickles so much, my parents had me convinced I'd grow up into a pickle. I'm older now and not green though.

When I was little my Dad asked my mum what was for tea that day. She replied Faggots and I said you never say Soddit and Faggot because they are rude words. I think I meant Sod it or F**k it

I used to think that if I didn't eat food for a long time I would fall apart into pieces. I stopped believing it at 7 years because I found out its not possible.

I used to think that when you ate too much, your stomach would get filled up and you could never eat again in your life.

When I was little I used to think that when you ate food that it would just keep building up inside your body. Like, when you first ate, it would go to your toes and keep going up to your leg, exc. exc.

I've always liked Quaker products... oh so yummy. But when I first moved to the U.S. they called it by another name. I wasn't sure how you pronounced it but I thought it sounded like 'Quacker' like a duck quacking. Until 5th grade I learned how to pronounce it.

I used to think that mushrooms came from where the Smurfs lived and sometimes I'd wonder if anyone had ever picked up a smurf and packed it in a punnet of mushrooms by mistake and used to see if I could find one. I'd look very closely because I knew the smurfs were small!

My dad told me when I was younger that if I'd save my ice-cream cone at Braums, I could have more. I always forgot about this but he would be sure to remind me when I was done eating it. Finally one day, I ate every drop of ice-cream that was in my cone but finally I had saved my cone. He laughed at me and told me he was joking! He let me believe this for several years lol how mean XD

I used to believe that the UL symbol on boxes of lightbulbs meant that they were kosher. I obviously had no idea what kosher meant, and the UL must have looked a bit too much like the "circle U" symbol I'd seen on other items in the grocery store.

My grandad had a cockateil and one day we'd gone there for tea. I was about 13 at the time. My mum was talking about sunflower seeds and what they tasted like, so curiosity got the better of me and I took one out of the bird's seed and ate it. Immediately after my parents told me very seriously that I'd turn into a cockateil! I didn't believe them at that moment and shrugged it off.. however, that night when I got home, I was drinking some water from a mug and happened to look at the reflection in the bottom of it. I could see I was forming a beak and my eyes were on the side of my head like a bird. I screamed and dropped the mug and started crying. My alarmed mum asked me what on earth was wrong - I told her and she told me not to be ridiculous and that she was just joking about me turning into a bird. I had to reassure myself by looking in the mirror..

Thankfully, to this day - I'm pretty sure I'm still human.. however, I'm still expecting the day I morph into a bird!

I used to think that rice grains were little pieces of pasta, rather than naturally forming grains.

When I was little, I believed marshmallows grew on trees. So everytime we'd go to the grocery store, I would beg for a bag of the small ones (my "seeds") and run home and plant them. They never grew :(
