i used to believe that coffee was a drink only for adults, like beer. and when i was asked if i wanted coffee cake, i thought it was a test to see if i would take something meant only for adults.
I thought if you ate enough chicken wings, you would sprout wings and be able to fly. Whenever we had fried chicken, I would make sure I got the wings.
my mum told me if i used to run like a chicken or eat it i would turn into one and everyone would eat me! i got really scared and cried for hours!
I used to believe that life preservers and preserves (as in jam) were the same. I asked my mother how could we use the preserves to save a life, and she didn't understand why I made that assumption.
When I was little my mom always made sure us kids had a good breakfast to start the day off right. Every time she made eggs sunny-side-up or over easy, I wouldn't eat, and would complain that she didn't take the bacon out of the bacon and eggs. For months my mom couldn't figure out what I was talking about because there wasn't any bacon on my plate, only eggs. I didn't like the yolks and thought those were the bacon in bacon and eggs.
When I was little, my mom put some eggs in a bowl out on the table (ready to cook for dinner) And I thought the chicks were alive in the egggs, and so I took 2 eggs and hid it in a shoe box. 3 weeks later, I opened it, and nothing was there. So I dumped it. Hahahha, what a waste of eggs ;] -bw age-11
When I was a little girl, I used to think that if you sliced an apple and left it in the fridge overnight, it would turn into cucumber slices?
In Massachusetts there used to be an ad on TV by the Farming Association. The jingle went "Brown eggs are local eggs, and local eggs are fresh!"
For years and years I believed that all eggs, everywhere, start out brown, and turn white in transport. Therefore, brown eggs are fresher because you know they came from some chicken closeby and was recently lain.
It wasn't until I got to college in New York and found with disgust that all the available eggs were white, that I realized how deeply this prejudice against white eggs had been ingrained. I was 19 and had to consciously remind myself that white eggs are not, by definition, almost rotten.
when i was little, i watched these kids bible videos called veggie tales. being easily fooled by the CGI, i belived that all vegtables could hop, an talk, and do normal stuff when in the fridge.as a result i would sneak the plastic bags off them b/c my mom told them not to put them over my head, and naturally, i didnt want them to suffocate. and 1 time i refused to eat my asparugus, and i was crying. then my dad said"c'mon, dont you wanna eat Junoir?" i promply screamed at my parents for eating junior, and got sent to my room. (my parents figured out that they had to tell me wonders about the vegtables to get me to eat them, like "if you eat asparugus, your pee-pee will come out orange" i belived them and choked down down the asparugus and ran into the bath room, then started yelling stuuf like"go pee-pees! i wanna see my orange pee-pee!")
You know miracle whip? Well when I was a kid I totally thought that miracle whip was like anything else. Like peanut butter and jelly you spread it on bread and eat it... which meant I ate it alone of course.
Thats what I thought it was by the time I was getting to be ten, I figured out it was for putting on other things to make it taste better.
i am so weird, I used to think that oranges and other fruits had feelings, and that scientists just hadn't discovered it yet, and it hurt the fruits when their skin was cut with knives. thats why i thought the apples would turn brown. I refused fruit for a long while. my mama thought i was crazy. she still does, actually.
I used to believe yeast could make bread rise because it really was salt with bubbles inside.
Around the age of six I went through a phase of believeing that sausages were the amputated and cooked limbs of a particular animal, a sort of miniature elephant. This really put me off eating them, especially with tomato sauce.
when i was little i thought coco pops were all friends so i had to convince them with my brain not to worry and that they'd all be with their friends when they got to my tummy!
I used to think that when you made food 'from scratch', that scratch was an ingredient like starch.
I used to ALWAYS order plain hamburgers at McDonalds, because I thought that the more stuff you put on, the crappier it tastes. I thought this because i once had a fish sandwich (i hate fish...), and i thought it was a normal one. It had cheese and mayonaise and stuff like that. So when i ate it, i thought it tasted bad because of the cheese and mayonaise. After my mom encouraged me to try kethcup with my hamburger, i tried it and it tasted good. So every time i went to McDonalds, i would add more and more stuff until i became satisfied with ordering Big Macs, which i eat today.
I used to believe that inside popcorn were tiny men who hated the heat. So when you heated them up they would get so mad they would pop. And for that reason I wouldn't eat popcorn because then I would be a cannibal and I couldn't believe that anyone would eat a tiny blown up man.
I used to think ketchup was specially made to cool down your food. One day i somehow figured that it was actually to add flavour- i was around 5- and i proudly told everyone thinking i had made a fantastic discovery and no-one knew that before!
I used to be afraid to eat fish. I just wouldnt eat it. I used to love chicken on the other hand. So oneday my parents told me that they were serving ;joke-chicken' for dinner. I loved chicken so much that I tried it, and loved it. I went on believing until my grandpa, at a family dinner, told me it was fish. I dont know how I believed that, but I did.
My wifes father had told her as a child that corned beef hash was a traditional dish for (H)Ash Wednesday. It was only when she told me and I nearly crashed the car laughing she realised.
