When i was born i was bald but had a lil "tail" that had hair. It was called a tail cuz it looked like one. So i heard my parents say that when i was born i had a tail. Well one day when i was like 8 or 9 i asked my parents what they did with my tail. They said they cut it off which made my start crying. It wasnt till after i calmed down that they told me it was just hair. I thouhgt i had a real tail. u know like a dog. Everyone laughed at me and even now ppl bring it up and laugh.

When I was younger, and used to play hide-and-seek, I used to think that nobody could see me if I couldn't see them! Wonder why I always lost that game, seeing as I would just stand in the middle of a room and close my eyes!

This is probably common but I will tell my tale. When my brother said a classmate of his wore panty hose one day I imagined someone wearing a garden hose for pants. I don't think my brother bothered to correct me.

I thought that the red dot on Indian women's foreheads was an open sore that they had to continually create. I wasn't sure how they did this.

One day when I was about 5 or so, I heard my grandma say 'That guy looks Jewish'. She was pointing at him, but I thought she was just pointing directly at his coat.

I got this idea that Jewish was a brand of some sort.
So the next day at my friends house, we were playing dress up and she asked me if I liked her crown.

I said, 'Yeah, is it made by Jewish?' right in front of her mom.

Your hair so totally looks Jewish.

When I was little, my grandma told me that whatever I called anybody that was bad, I would become that. I called her fat, so she told me that I would be fat too. Now I am. :)

My sister used to believe that her nose fell off when she was born and was glued back on. This was because she had a scar on her nose and I told her that was why.

When I was very young, my mom got her ears pierced. I asked her how they did it, and she said that they used a little gun to put the earring in. For years afterwards (until I was a teenager, probably) I was mortified of ever having to pierce my own ears, because I envisioned my mom standing against a wall, and someone with an actual gun on the other side of the room taking aim and firing at her ear.

Once, my friend's mum came into the room while I was at her house, wearing a gas mask and a see through shower cap, because she was sanding, and I thought she was playing dressing up, and she was being a nurse.

When I was very young, I used to think that if I could see a woman's feet, she was naked. This confused me for some time as a child.

I still have issues with feet to this day. And no, there is no foot fetish involved.

I have a heart shaped face and in the middle of my forehead I have a dent that you can't see, but you can feel, it actually feels like the outline of a heart. When I first noticed it I was about 5 or 6. So one day i showed it to my dad and I asked him why was my face made like a heart and he said, "your mama and I were so much in love when we made you and you came out to be a love child". I was so happy when he told me that, I believed that all the way until I was about 15. even now as I think about it, it brings a smile to my face, just to think that I am actuall a love child.

One day I asked my grandpa why he didn't have much hair and he told me that it was because when he tried to use the toaster, it sucked out some of his hair. And I believed him.

When I was little I was facinated by dimples because only some people had them and others didn't. For some reason I decided that people got dimples because when they were in their mother's bellies before they were born somebody had poked them in their cheeks too often and that's how they were created. Don't ask me how they did it but that's what I believed...

When I was younger, my best friend told me that the reason why Arnold Schwarzenegger had such big muscle was because he had a rare disease. This disease made the fat on his body grow under his muscles making his muscle big. The false fact went unchecked untill last year, I was like "Dude you lied to me"...lol...kids!

When I was in Kindergarten at school, I remember once talking to a boy classmate and he introduced me to his friend who was a girl. Somehow she just didn't look like a girl or a boy at all to me, and for a couple of weeks I wondered if there were Boys, Girls, and Neither.

a friend brought her very young infant over to our house when i was about three. my mother asked me if i thought the child was a boy or a girl and i replied confidently, 'it's a boy.'

'that's right,' said my mother. 'how can you tell?'

'because it's wearing trousers,' i replied.
