I used to believe that when women grew up that they could no longer wear socks. When I was a child, my mom and Grandmother's all wore panty hose. It wasn't until I was a teenager did I ever see my mom wear a pair of socks.

When I was, before I startd school, I was very thin. People would say to me, you as skinny as a toothpick. You are so skinny you could go down the drain. Well I believed them and my sister would terorize me, threating to pull the plug in the tub and I would scream thinking I was going to go down the drain.

When I was in first grade, one of my classmates had a shirt that said "guess" on it. I tried to figure out what it said, but couldn't so I asked them. I got very frusterated because everytime I asked them they kept saying "guess!" I couldn't figure out why they wouldn't just tell me...

My cousin is seven and KNOWS she's a secret agent. She leaps into the crowded dining room in her black ninja clothes, jogs in place, humming her theme song, then sneaks along the wall, thinking she's invisible.

I told her that sneaking around in black doesn't work well in a white room.

Whe I was about 5 or 6 I was told that Real CowBoys didnt wear underwear. So when me and my friends were playing Cow boys and Indians I would go out with NO underwear on.. One day I fell over and hurt my knee. I rushed in doors crying and my mum said she would take a look and pulled my jeans down, to here surprise she found I wasnt wearing under wear.. She told me that it was wrong and I should wear some as it protected my jeans.. Not wishing to make my jeans dirty I thought id be doubly protected and wear 2 pairs of briefs.. This was fine untill I needed to pee . I wet my self one time as I was bursting to go and could get my dick out fast enough.

In first grade my friend had on a sweatshirt that had the "guess" logo on it. I had no idea what her shirt said, so I asked her, and her reply was "guess." As you can imagine, I kept asking and was frusterated when she kept telling me to guess. It took me awhile to figure out that the shirt actually said guess on it, and she had told me right away.

When I was young(I don't remember exactly how young) I asked my sister, who was two years older than me, why some people were so fat. After pondering my question she gave me several scenarios.
The one that made the most sense was that apparently, obese people were used for storage. They would carry around food and various office supplies in their guts and walk around office buildings giving them out.
What really stuck with me though, was the explaination that they had a disease she referred to as 'spam.' She told me that these people were addicted to spam and I had to be very careful around them. Knowing that I had(and still have) a horrible fear of vomit, she described how these people would get sick at any moment, anywhere. To this day, I avoid standing infront of fat people.

when i was little, i hated my red hair and freckles, so i thought that if i dyed my hair, my freckles would go away, because you never saw people with brown hair with lots of freckles

When I was about six years old I took a One-a-Day vitamin from my grandmother's medicine cabinet believing that I would grow large muscles and become extremely healthy. The entire day I kept going into the bathroom to look in the mirror to see how much my muscles had grown. I believed this would happen because of the commercial One-a-Day had on TV.

I used to believe that if I dressed up like one of the characters in a movie or television show, that I could be that person. This didn't work with animals... for example, if I dressed up like Cinderella I'd be Cinderella, but if I dressed like a cat I'd just be me in a cat suit.

When I was little, I couldn't understand why I had freckles and my brother didn't. My dad told me I followed a cow too close and when he pooped it splattered on my face. I spent hours trying to wash them off.

Adults used to tell me when I made an ugly face at the same time the little bell in Rome ran, my face would stay that way forever. One of the teachers at ellementary school had weird lips and I wondered that might be because she was showing an ugly face when the bell in Rome rang.

My 4 year old nephew kept asking me why his shadow follows him everywhere. I asked him to dance like the bear in Jungle book, shaking his butt real hard so he could shake the shadow off. Imagine his parents and me rolling on the ground laughing when he tried this real hard for 15 minutes!

As a young child, my son, stood watching me as I weighed myself on the bathroom scale. After a short pause he asked if he could also "measure his feet"!

When I was 5, sitting outside a hotel in a rented convertible, I saw a very fat man walk by. Much to my dad's embarrasment and to the fat man's amusment I quipped "Boy, if he was skinny he sure would be tall, huh dad?"
Apparently I thought people did not loose weight, they just rearranged it.

When I was a little girl, soda pop bottle tops had a cork insert. It was possible to pry this loose in one piece. One of my uncles showed me how you could sandwich your shirt between the bottle top and the cork, thereby attaching the bottle top to your clothing.

I thought this was the most elegant thing in the world. And I knew that it was my destiny to go on the stage wearing a costume made of nothing but soda-pop bottle tops. I knew I would be a star. Never stopped to think about what I'd need to perform; the bottle-top costume was more than enough.
