Naturally, growing up in Massachusetts, all of my family had Boston accents. One night, after asking what we were having for dinner, my mother responded "chicken parm". Without the letter "r" it sounded like "chicken palm". I believed that one of my favorite foods was the palm of a chicken.

When I was a kid, I used to believe that a grilled cheese sandwich was actually called a "girl cheese" and that only girls could eat them. I used to get mad at my two older brothers because only me and my two sisters were allowed to eat them and they would have to choose something else.

When my cousin and I were elementary school age, she tried to convince me to stop eating McDonalds chicken nuggets because they were made out of pumpkin guts. I'm not really sure what pumpkin guts even are, but the thought of it scared me from chicken nuggets for a while.

I used to believe that there were people who wanted to steal my food, because I was only ever told that there were "people in the world who wanted my food" when I didn't finish all of it, but I was never told why.

Around the age of 4, after watching my family sprinkle salt on their food for almost every meal, I came to the conclusion that salt cooled your food down for you. It took a while for my mom to realize why I would pour heaps of salt on my food then sit back and wait.

I was about 3 years old and asked my mum one day "are chips a type of fish". She wasn't listening to me and just said yes. I went for ages believing that chips swam around in the sea.

When I was little my favorite thing to eat was hotdogs. My mother didn't like them. She told me they were made out of kangaroos. They were no longer my favorite food.

One day I was eating spaghetti when all of the sudden, i started sniffling and my eyes got very watery. I pushed my food around my plate and did not want to eat it because I was afraid that the spaghetti had once been alive and was now in pain when I ate it. I was hungry so in the end, I ended up crying harder as I ate my food and I apologized to the spaghetti after each bite and asked it to forgive me. T_T

When I was 4, my mom told me not to eat in bed because then we would get ants from the crumbs. I thought crumbs were really ant eggs and that all the food we ate was made of ant eggs.
