top belief!

One time when I was little, I went to the grocery store with my Mom and she saw an egg plant and she was jokeing around and said "Look baby!! Its an alien" Well ofcourse I belived her. She bought two. Your thinking I was scared of the eggplant. WRONG! When we got home, I asked if I could look at the eggplant. I took it into myy room and I dressed it up in cabage patch doll cloth and put it in my stroler and I strolled it around the house. My Mom always had to take the egg plants when they got old and she would switch them out. lol
I would also not talk to my perants after they ate egg plant. I got very upset!

That everything was made out of food, depending on the color. I believed, for instance, that diapers were made out of milk.

When I was 8 my brother told me that nutella was produced by a married couple. The man called Nut and the woman called Ella. Foolishly enough, I believed everything my brother told me! Soon enough my friends informed me that I was wrong...lol

I used to believe that there were little men who worked in the bucket out the front of KFC. It was their job to cook the chicken and send it down the pipes into the restaurante.

I was always puzzled by jars of jam that said "extra jam" on the label. I thought it meant that there was more jam in the jar than there would be otherwise. Either it was a slightly bigger jar containing a little bit extra for free, like they often do, or they had managed to fit more into a normal sized jar.

when i was about 7 years old my dad took us for some food to long john silvers. which was odd because we never ate there. he said they had come out with something new. so i went along,never asking what it was. as my father and sister arrived up to the counter, my dad said he wanted an order of butterfly shrimp. well after i heard that i started screaming and crying. thinking it was actually real butterflies.my dad tried to calm me down as my sister and him looked so embarrassed. i think i may have even called my dad a murderer. well i was crying and crying and my dad couldn't calm me down so he just left me alone and sat down and stated eating them, and as he was eating them i cried more and more. i didnt understand for a couple years what actually butterfly shrimp were.

I thought that the pimiento inside a cocktail olive actually grew in there naturally, like a pit or a seed. I didn't know that it was a piece of a pepper that was stuffed in there in a factory. I knew that it was possible to buy olives with no pimientos, but I figured the pimientos had just been removed because some people like them and others don't.

My favourite olives today are the ones that grow with a clove of garlic in the middle. ;)
