When I first learned that ketchup is made from tomatoes, I realized that that must be why ketchup is red. I assumed that mustard, therefore, must be made from something yellow. The only two yellow possibilities I could think of at the time were bananas and lemons. So for quite some time I wondered whether mustard was made from lemons or from bananas.

I used to believe that bananas were made in factories because I didn't think they had seeds. When a classmate told me that he lived near a banana factory I said Wow do they make bananas there? He said No mate, they package them. Bananas grow... @_@

I remeber when I was about four, we kept the water jug in the fridge. I, of course, was to short to reach it because it was on the top shelf. So for some reason, I started calling it Wa-Wa-High. I was convinced it was that until my preschool teacher told me differently. I was abosulutely crushed
Another time was when I was at my uncles house or something and we were roasting hot-dogs. I might have not roasted my long enough, becausewhen I started eating it, my uncle said my eyes would turn bright green, like an aliens. Me and my sister rushed to the bathroom, to check if our eyes had gone alien on us. They hadn't, but I didn't eat hot-dogs until I was around seven! (I was about five then)

For some number of years, my mother had my brother and I convinced that the preparation of meatloaf required that we clean up all the leaves in the yard and give them to her. No, really. There were little green leaf-looking bits in the red sauce of the meatloaf, and we thought it was due to our diligent efforts.

On becoming a little older, I thought to ask why she needed a whole giant trash bag full of dried-out brown fall leaves just to put a sprinkling of green leaf stuff on the meat. So now we just have it with gravy.

I used to believe that the temperature of the oil when frying Prawn Chips determined what colour they ended up...
Later found out they are multi-coloured in the packet - That's why the Chef is now my EX-husband!

I used to believe that grilled cheese sandwiches were really called "girl" cheese sandwiches. I believed this because that's what it sounded like people were saying and my sister, mom and I were the only people I knew who ate them and we are all girls. My father never ate them, I thought it was because he was a boy, but it turned out he just didn't like cheese. Even when my brother got old enough to eat them he didn't like them, so I never said it properly until it was spelled out in something I was reading when I was about 16. I wonder how many people thought I had a speech impediment every time I ever asked for a "girl" cheese sandwich.

When my sister was about 7, she thought that when you drank Kool-Aid or Crystal Light, any drink made from powder, the water would go through your system and the powder stayed in your stomach forever.

Of course, I might have been the one to tell her that...

I used to believe that Chopsticks were used because people couldn't see properly, and that the chopsticks were antennae that would then sense the food and allow the person to find and eat it.
