My grandfather told me the round green fruit in canned fruit cocktail were "geezleberries." For years, I only had a mild curiosity as to why I never saw any raw (i.e. not canned) geezleberries, and my family always jokingly referred to canned grapes as "geezleberries", ha ha ha. Only I wasn't in on the joke. I was well into my twenties when my younger sister perceived that I really thought they were called geezleberries and convinced me (with some difficulty) that they were grapes.

When my brother was little, he was very picky with what he would eat- only fruits and vegetables. He considered himself a "Fruititarian." We convinced him that chicken grew on a tree and was a fruit so that he would eat. He believed that for years.

parents are always telling you not to waste food, because he poor people don't get any, you're so lucky etc. well, logically, as a kid, i thot that was pretty dumb; i mean, the more food we throw away, the more "poor people" get to eat from the dustbins, right? lol.

When I was little, I always thought that there was someone behind the McDonald's menu sign in the drivethrough talking through the intercom where you place your order. My mother was curious when she saw me looking for the man out the window as we pulled out.

Whenever I got ice cream,( I was about 4) I would always order the "soft" ice cream because I thought the "hard" ice cream was actually hard and it would hurt my teeth if I tried to bite into it.

I used to believe that tripe was a kind of fish. Growing up in New England my mother prepared pickled tripe regularly. One day in a restaurant with my parents and a young friend I ordered pickled tripe. My buddy asked what it was and I explained that it was like a trout and that the swam upstream to spawn.

My brother and I used to believe that lobster tails were poisonous to eat if you were under 18 years of age. We grew up in Maine and my dad would get our loster tails whenever we ate lobster for dinner. The plot was revealed when we had lobster at a friend's house and the parents were confused upon receiving our lobster tails.

When I was little, my science teacher taught us that there are bacteria in the air and water. So, I used to believe that, when I was very hungry, I could just breathe in deep and eat all the bacteria in the air for food.

When I was small, my parents and I would go fishing. As a small child, I saw that the fish were eating the worms. I realized that if they ate the worms, I would also be eating worms when I ate the fish. I couldn't eat fish until I was over thirty years old.
