I used to believe that watermelon trees would grow out of my ears if I swallowed the seed. I also believed that if I drank dark coffee my skin would turn black, these are the things my grandpa told me. Of course, I know better now at 31 years old.
when I was about 5 my aunt was pregnant and she told me that she swallowed a watermelon seed and it was growing inside of her. and I was so scared it would take me like hours to finish a watermelon to make sure I got all the seeds out.
Are you telling me that the seeds from the gorgeous tasting peppers (green, red, yellow and such) are not poisonous?... but...but... I've been carefully picking each and everyone out each time I make a stir-fry since I can remember. I'm 33 now.
It's probably best that I don't remember who told me they were bad for you, right?
When I was little everytime I ate watermelon seeds I thought that watermelons would grow inside of me. I was terrified of the seeds for a long time. Then I ran into a pregnent lady and I was screaming saying she ate watermelon seeds and they are grown inside of her. I get bugged my my mom often about that...
my mom told me that if i ate the seeds in the watermelon i waterelon would grow inside of me but she was making it up obviously and i believed her and the ni saw a pregnant woman and asked if she ate the seeds of a watermelon
My mom made me believe that it I swallowed watermelon seeds, a watermelon would grow in my stomach OR that if I swallowed my chewing gum, my insides would stick together.
When i was little i believed that the seeds in strawberries were peppers. We used to have salami with the peppers in it and i would not eat it because it was hot to me so i also believed that the seeds would be hot.
When I was about 7 or 8, my sister (7 years older than me) convinced me that the pips in strawberry jam where little insect eggs that would hatch and grow inside me.
I have since discovered that she just liked the strawberry jam herself and didn't want me to eat it all.
I used to think that if you ate the black seeds of the watermelon a watermelon would grow inside of you and your stomach would explode. Another watermelon fear of mine was that if you ate the white part of a watermelon slice you would die. I also thought that poison was only liquid and came in bottles, and you could tell if it was poison if there was a skull and crossbones on the jar.
I was told as a child that if I swallowed a watermelon seed a watermelon would grow in my belly.
My mother told me, remember that woman that had a huge belly (it was a baby) I said yea, she said as i swollowed some seeds of watermellon, that woman on tv had a watermellon in her stomach. I asked what do u mean, she said, she at watermellon seeds like u did and grew a huge watermellon in her stomach, so for a month, i never ate a watermellon...
One day when I was about 6 my older brother, 11 at the time, saw me eating an orange and noticed I was eating some of the smaller, softer seeds that were in the orange.
He told me a story about our cousin that had been eating oranges like that and had to be rushed to the hospital when they discovered an orange blossom in his ear!
For a while after that I could not eat oranges until my mom started buy naval oranges. And I spread the story until someone at school pointed out my foolery!
my mom told me that if i accidentally ate one of the black watermelon seeds a watermelon would grow inside my stomach. THis scared the crap outta me and it sucked cause it was my first and favorite food
When I was four, my mom told me not to eat the black seeds in watermelon. (I still don't know why!) But I knew that I accidentally swallowed one. I kept imagining that a watermelon vine was growing in my stomach. I was afraid to confront my mom, because I thought she would take me to the hospital and get an operation.
at age 4-6 my brother and me loved watermelon sooo much. once we sallow a seed and open our mouth toward the sunlight hoping it would grow in our stomach.
When i was young, Maybe 4, my older brother told me if i planted the seeds on top of Cheeseburgers, a Cheeseburger tree would grow. Needless to say, after weeks of watering and tending, my Cheeseburger tree never sprouted.
when I was a kid I belived if you swallow a watermelon seed a water melon wold grow in your belly.
When my little sister was 3 she asked what would happen to the watermelon seeds that she just swallowed. I told her it would grow in her body and out from the top of her head. She looked at me for a moment. Then I pulled up my sleeve and pointed to my blood vein and said "look these are roots from the ones I swallowed yesterday." She stared at my arm and stoned....
I used to believe that when you ate water-melon seed, it'll grow in your head.
