I learned my first 'naughty' words in the 6th grade. I also stopped eating fish-sticks in the 6th grade. If you say fish-sticks fast enough they sound a little gross... I still can't get myself to eat them.

My sister was such a mean person when we were younger, she'd make up lies to try and scare me. The two that stick with me today is that the chocolate chips in Cookie Crunch are actually maggots, and tapioca pudding is fish eggs. I can't even look at either of them to this day.

I can vaguely remember arguing with a kid in elementary school who thought that hot dogs were made from raccoons. I'm glad I can remember a story where I was not the stupid one.

When I was about 5 and was learning how to read, I realized that some of my crayons had the names of foods. So I tried to eat the Macaroni & Cheese crayon and it tasted terrible. But I still didn't learn my lesson. I found another crayon and the color was Purple Pizazz, but I read it as "purple pizza" and took a huge bite out of it.

When I was 3 I was still in diapers, and I have a few vague memories of having my diaper changed. One time I had a few little turds in there, and I saw them before my mum threw the diaper away, and I thought that they looked like raisins. After that, I was convinced that raisins were really the same thing as turds, and I was horrified when I saw people eating them, even after my mum told me that they used to be grapes - after all, I ate grapes and produced turds, so for all I knew, that was how the process went. I'm disgusted by raisins still.

When I was 4, my favorite food was fried scallops. One day, my mother brought fried scallop dinners home for supper. My 5 year old cousin was staying over, and we were splitting a dinner. About 1/2 way through, he whispered to me that scallops were fish cheeks. I believed him, and was so grossed out I stopped eating them for years.

I don't remember how I came to find out that they weren't fish cheeks, but when I did I asked my cousin about it. He said he just wanted the rest of them from the dinner!

To get us to eat Liver, my mom used to call it Velvet Steak. (Steak was a very rare treat) So we were always excited about it, until we figured it out in our teens. For some reason it tasted better when it was called Velvet Steak!

My aunt used to fry eggplant, It was her favorite vegetable. She told me that they were chicken nuggets. She told me what they really were, and I never ate my aunt's supposed chicken nuggets again.

My brother used to tell me that refried beans came from letting cows eat the beans and then scraping it out of the cows stomach and canning it. They had to kill the cows to get the beans out. Weird, I know.

We had a cat named Staccato when I was very young, and since I couldn't pronounce Staccato I called her Taco. When I started school, we were having cafeteria food and in line I was told we were having Tacos. I cried and cried and refused to eat. I thought everyone was eating my cat.

All growing up, whenever we had Tapioca pudding, my mother told everyone who had any that the tapioca were actually fish-eyes...this kept my next-door neighbor from ever eating Tapioca pudding...of course, I thought it was cool!
