I loved baloney sandwiches. I ate them all of the time. One day at my grandmothers house, I asked her to make me one. I guess my older brother was feeling devious that day, so he whispered "Baloney comes from the skin of dead people. You know grandpa is dead, where do you think she's getting that baloney?"
I freaked out and ran from the sandwich when she brought it out.

When I was little, for some reason I was terrified of onions. I thought that if I ate them, I would die of a heart attack.
