When my daughters wre in grade school, they cured hams for a 4-H project. After the judging as the county fair, something was said about hams being pork, from pigs. "Oh, no," my youngest daughter said, "Hams come from ham animals!"
Her belief was that the shank end of the ham was the "ham animal's" neck. To make a ham from a "ham animal" you cut off the head and legs, which left the round, fat body of the animal.

When I was a little kid I used to hate butter. If I saw someone putting butter on my food I would flip out. It didn't matter if it was on rolls, mashed potatoes, I wanted nothing to do with that stuff. Well, my grandmother always made this toast for me with this amazing secret seasoning, so everytime I would go over there, I'd ask her to make me some toast with the seasoning. It was only several years later that she revealed she had been putting butter on my toast all those years!!

When I was about fifteen I went on a road trip with my parents. We had breakfast at a quaint little restaurant. Our waitress had a fascinating accent I'd never heard before, and she asked me first, "Would you like soup or salad with that?" All I replied was "Yes." She asked again, and again I said yes. When she came back with both soup and salad, I thought, "Wow, this does not look like the SUPER salad I ordered."

I used to believe that the reason why my mom never bought Ramen noodles was because they were some sort of very expensive pasta that we couldn't afford. I had no idea what they actually were until I was 12!

Like, an actual vitamin called Vitamin K.

I just remember my brother on my first day of school telling me 'knowledge is a vitamin'.

When I was little I thought pancakes were pan-a-cakes because of the pat-a-cake game my mom played with me. (I thought she was saying "pan-a-cake,pan-a-cake, baker's man) I loved pancakes and asked for them all the time calling them "pan-a-cakes". Then when I was about five my grandmother told me they were really called "pancakes" and that sounded so wrong! It took years before it began to sound okay to just say "pancake".

once when i was babysitting, i had to go to the grocery store, so i had to bring the kid along with me, while we were there, he desperately wanted a coconut, i bought him one, and when i asked him what he was going to do with the coconut, he shook it (hearing the milk inside) and then said " i'm going to to home and plant it, and i won't even have to water it because it already produces it own water"

This belief has to do with my kids and my sister. My kids always loved eating tortilla shells by themselves. When they were very small, they were each eating one while my sister was visiting. I made a sarcastic remark to my sister and she commented back to me "Oh, go hug a bear." (She was making a polite remark to me because my kids were in the room. One day the kids came to me and asked me for a "hugabear." I had no idea what they were talking about. After I had them show me what they were talking about, I realized the connection they had made that day. For years after that, I just let them call tortilla shells hugabears.
