When I was about five years old, I accidentally swallowed a watermellon seed and my step-father told me that it would grow in my belly. I started crying hysterically because I thought I was going to get fat and blow up.

My grandmother told me when I was about 7 or 8 that if you swallowed the watermelon seeds and you drank too much water the seeds would grow and you'd get this enormous belly. I believed her! She convinced me by showing me all the beer bellys at the lake where we water-skied. There were plenty of them and I thought for the longest time it was because they swallowed the watermelon seeds. Pitiful! ha ha ha

I used to believe that if you ate tomatoes, the pips would stick in your appendix and then you would get appendicitis and have to have an operation.

when i was 5 yrs old i accidentlly ate a water-melon seed. i was scared, i asked my mom what would happen if i ate a water-melon seed(i didn't tell her that i did ate it).my mom told me that the seed would be planted in my stomach and a water-melon tree would start growing and it will give fruits which would hang out from my ears,nose,mouth and my belly button and soon i would turn into a tree.i started panicking and i tried to vomit so that the seed comes out but it did not. then later the whole day i tried to avoid drinking water cause if water falls on the seed it would grow faster. and i ate a lot of food so that the seed would fall under the food and don't grow.then for sometime i checked my mouth to see if any plant was coming through there...i actually kept on believing it till i was 11 yrs old...

Okay, alot of kids believed the whole "swallowing watermelon seeds will cause a watermelon tree to grow inside you" thing, but I took this a little farther. When I first heard of this, I hadn't quite figured out what death was, and I had this idea of time being infinite. My reasoning went like this: Suppose that there is a "last day." But then what about the next day? There is no last day! So even if the chances of me swallowing watermelon seeds today are very small, what about tomorrow? Or the day after that? Or the day after that? I thought it was inevitable that eventually, I would swallow watermelon seeds, and I definitely would have a watermelon tree growing inside me at some point or another, and this idea scared me, alot! As you can see, I was thinking way too much!

When I was 5 or 6, my Grandpa used to tell me that if I ate the seeds of watermelons that I would grow watermelons out of my ears. Of course, that just made me eat more of the seeds until I realized that I just wasn't going to grow any no matter how many seeds I ate.

Most people are farmilar with the belief that if they swallowed a watermelon seed, a watermelon would grow in their stomach. I took it a step further when I was little, thinking *whatever* I ate would grow inside of me. Apples made apple trees, lettuce made "lettuce trees" - the best argument was steak would make a cow.

When I was little my brother would tell me that if I ate a watermelon seed a watermelon tree would grow in my stomach and I would die. One day my sister was eating a piece of watermelon and I flipped out and started crying.

When I was younger, my parents always told me never to eat watermelon seeds, or I'll have a watermelon grow in my stomach. Even as I was about fifteen years old, I would always get scared if I accidentally swallowed a seed, and I would never drink water after it thinking that it'll help the watermelon get planted. Silly.

You know those little black seeds in watermelons? I used to spend hours making sure I picked them all out of every slice because I was terrified that if I swallowed one I would grow a pumpkin out of my belly button.

One time when i was young, about 4 or 5 my dad had an obbsession with sunflower seeds, and still does, i soon inherited this obsession. He told me one day to only eat the seed. Because if i ate the sheel i would poop it out and it would hurt alot. And still to this day i have never ate the shells......
