When we were little kids eating watermelon at my Grandma's house my Uncle John used to cut the red part out of the watermelon and eat it, leaving us the pink and white part before the rind. He said he was taking out the bad part so we would not get sick.

My dad used to tell me that watermelons were dinosaur eggs and if i sat on them long enough they would hatch. I sat on it, and cried like a maniac when he went to cut it open.

When I was little, my sister told me that watermellons were elephant eggs. I waited for two months for a baby elephant to hatch out of the watermelon in the kitchen.

My belief is a common one; I used to think watermelons would grow inside my belly if I ate watermelon seeds. What is weird is that I'd try to eat all the seeds, wet my belly and lay on the sun to try and make the watermelon grow.

I thought pregnant women had done that successfully.

I just found out three days ago, that it worked. My "watermelon" is now growing inside my tummy.

When I was 3 or 4 I believed that the seeds in a watermelon were actually raisins. At a picnic my mom started taking all the seeds out of my watermelon and I cried because I wanted the "raisins" like the other kids. I thought my mom was mean.

I used to believe that when I accidentally swallowed an apple seed or watermelon seed, an apple tree or watermelon patch would grow where I was buried once I died.

When I was in elementary school my teacher got pregnant & told us that her belly was growing because she ate a watermelon and the seeds were growing in her belly. To this day I don't eat watermelon.

My grandpa told me that edible part of the watermelon was blue until you cut them open.

When I was little, I always used watermelons to sit on after we bought one from the store. My mom always warned me, "don't fart on it or it will explode!"
I believed this until I was 15 when I told my older sister not to fart on the watermelon and she just laughed at me.

When I was about four, I saw a fat man. I thought he was pregnant. I told my mother and she told me he just swallowed a watermelon seed. Now I've gotten myself into the habit of meticulously picking out the black watermelon seeds before I eat a watermelon slice.

I was a very inquisitive child. When my older sister was pregnant she told me it was because of watermelons. I was like WHY?! She explained on how when you eat the seeds they go into your belly and it grows & grows and then out comes a baby. I was like HOW?! She told me that it was like real watermelon. The baby comes out attached to this vine and the outside stays inside for other babies to grow in the next time she ate the seeds of a watermelon. Needless to say I was scared of watermelon for years! And to this day I don't eat watermelon seeds & of course discovered the 'reality of reproduction' when I was much older.

The little sister.

Wen I was little my mom told me that if I swallowed a watermelon seed a watermelon would grow inside of me. I then proceeded to not drink water so I wouldn't water the seed and worry about a watermelon growing in me.

My grandmother told me once that I couldn't eat watermelon when it was lightning because water "drew" lightning and it would strike me if I ate watermelon! I think this was just to deter me from eating at that particular time and she never told me any different. I believed this until I was a teenager! Be careful what you tell your kids!!!!!

My sister who is 40 years old, mind you, just told me that she heard long ago that if you eat watermelon and lie down, you will die. I said from what? She says you drown somehow? Duh?! How is that possible??? She is 40 and still believes this!

When I was six my sister told me that if I swallowed a watermelon seed it would grow in my stomach. I swallowed on by accident and waited years for it to grow, the whole time i was scared the plant was slowly rising toward my mouth. I was fourteen when I realized it wasn't true.

I accedently swallowed a watermelon seed on time when i was about 5 and my sister and brother both convinced me it would grow inside of me, and get bigger and bigger until the green leaves came out my nose and my ears and my mouth, and eventually I would die. And there would be a perfectly good watermelon inside of me! EW!

My parents when grocery shopping late one night and bought a watermelon... by the time we got home it was my bedtime but I really wanted a piece of the melon... My dad, wanting me to go to bed, told me my mom had to cook it first... so when I got up in the morning I asked my mom "did you cook the watermelon yet????" My mom was very confused
