For as long as I can remember I have not liked onions. Since my daddy did he would always try to sneak them into my food. One day, I was about five, he made chicken and fried potatoes for me and mom. When I asked him if there were onions in it he looked me dead in the eye and said "eat 'em, they'll put hair on your butt". For the next few years of my life I checked my backside every night before bed just in case I accidentally ingested a piece of onion. To this day I wont even touch them. I am 23.

I went to a restaurant one time and was amazed to find that there was a thing called sweetbread. I honestly thought "Wow, there is sugar in bread!" , but it came to my disappointment when it was actually intestines from a cow, I believe. I blame the french for this.

When I was young my mother used to put hot sause in our mouths if we talked back. My sister thaught that if she put the hot sause in the frigde it wouldn't be "hot" anymore, she shortly found out that that thought was incorrect

When i was little I didn't like to eat meat (still don't), so my mother told me that Oxtail soup was made with carrots, and I believed her. Years later, I confronted her about it, and she said that duiring that war they'd remove the meat from the soup and grate in carrots to give the texture. I pointed out that the war ended a long time ago, and she just said "I'm old and I get confused", never once admiting that it was a lie.

i used to believe that the last bite of any banana wasn't good to eat. even as an adult i always threw the last bite away. someone asked me why and i confessed i had no idea why...i just had always thrown away the last bite. it wasn't until i was iun my late twenties that, while thumbing through the encyclopedia, i came across a diagram of a banana. it was split into its constituent parts...80% water, 15% something else and the last bite (5%) was ash. i realized this was the root of my belief since childhood. (even knowing this i still have a tough time eating that last bite)

I used to believe that when people ate Ramen noodles, that the noodles would slowly turn into worms in the person's stomach. I was always terrified to eat them until my mom told me that the noodles were like the ones in chicken soup, and not made of worms at all. Now I practically live off of them. Oh the life of a student...

My cousin and I told her little brother that toe jam was just like the kind you put on toast. We got into a lot of trouble when my mom and my aunt caught him eating it!

I never really liked red meat as a kid, and I remember the first time I tried lamb, it was covered in this red sauce and I thought it tasted really weird and didn't even look like "real" meat(because of the sauce), instead I had a very strong suspicion that it was infact human flesh. I ate it anyway.
