I thought if food said it was fat free it meant you could eat as much as you want without getting fat!

I use to believe that if I felt sick - all I had to do was eat a lifesaver and I would feel better. In my defense, why else would they call it a "life-saver"?

When I was 6, the ice cream truck was nearby and this boy and I wanted to get some. A friend told us that she didn't eat ice cream from the ice cream truck because none of the ice cream truck drivers wash their hands.

I didn't buy ice cream from the ice cream truck till I was 18.

In order to avoid the topic of cannibalism when eating food (I thought that all inanimate objects, food included, had feelings), I believed that the pieces of food I was about to eat was waiting excitedly to ride the roller coaster that was in my stomach.

My mom ran a daycare in our home for most of my childhood. She had Flintstone vitamins for some of the kids, but she wouldn't let me have any. Not knowing what they were for, I asked her one day. For whatever reason, she told me they were to make you hungry so you would eat all of your meals and since I already did that, even if she gave me some (which she did), they wouldn't do anything.
I believed this well into high school.

When I was young, I would stay the night with my grandmother and she would make biscuits or toast for breakfast. If she happened to burn it, she would tell us that, "Burnt bread makes you beautiful." I know she said this just so she wouldn't have to make more, but we all believed her, and to this day, I prefer burnt bread.

When I was a kid I really liked the ramen noodles you can buy in the packages at the store. However I didn't realize ramen was just a generic name for that kind of noodle and thought it was a brand name. So there was this one brand called "Top Ramen" I figured it was the same brand but the Top Ramen noodles were somehow better than just regular ramen.

When I was in elementary school, I used to attend an after school program called "A Plus", where we, the children, would be watched upon by the "leaders" (adults) until our parents came to pick us up. At the time, I went through the phase of being obsessed with enjoying my afternoon snack of dry, uncooked ramen noodles. After eating them for a couple years, a friend of mines had exclaimed that eating it raw can eventually cause you to end up with worms in your stomach. He said that the reason we cook the saimin was to "kill" the parasites in it, however eating it raw could result in us acquiring these worms in our stomach where they would grow. The sad thing is, I believed it until now, especially since the shape of it was really convincing.

When I was little, my grandma got me to eat my vegetables by telling me that they were dinosaur food. Naturally, I proceeed to eat tiny broccoli trees, lettuce leaves, carrot logs, and celery branches. Unfortunaely, I did not know that "dinosaur food" only applied to what was on my plate. I later went out and sampled the leaves off the trees in my yard.

They tasted pretty gross, so I went back to only the food that was put on my plate.

I remember growing up and my dad eating a special cereal that we were allowed only to eat once in a while. Mom told us the name of the cereal was "Daddy Cereal" because it was only for him. When I got a job in high school, I asked my mom to tell me where to buy it (because I was making my own money). It was simple granola - to which I am pretty much addicted. And I still refer to it as "Daddy Cereal"

At my aunt's house, when I was little, I was always messing aroung- touching things, playing with things, even spilling things on the floor.

One day I was playing with neat-looking, push-button salt/pepper dispenser- pushing the black button and making pepper come out all over the floor.

My aunt saw me doing this, and told me to stop. She also said that this would, as she put it, 'make ants.'

By this, I thought that she meant that all the little granules of pepper that were coming out, were going to magically turn into ants if they got left there on the floor.
