Once, when I was little, some slightly older kids I was playing with drew a circle around me and said that if I left it cacti would grow through my feet. They proceeded to taunt me from outside.
Needless to say, I believed them and weeped and cried loudly until my mom came to my rescue to carry me out and yell at the others.

When I was about 12 I asked my mom how people got emu oil. Her response was you put your forefinger and thum on either side of the emu's leg and almost milked the emu oil out. She always said that she never lied so I believed her for a few weeks until she finally told me differently.

One day when my little brother was little my mother, aunt, and I made up a little trick. We said that he was gonna get a boobie on his forehead when he turns ten. He got even more upset when my aunt and I told him that I had an older brother(me being the oldest)that died when he got his boobie removed. He was crying for weeks. I don't think I'll ever let him live it down!

When I was in grade school, most of my enemies just happened to be kids who rode the bus to our school, so I developed this huge mistrust in them. One day I was playing out at recess with a friend of mine and pointed at something in the grass using my middle finger because my hands were full. Another kid (an older, BUS KID!) said she was going to tell on me for using the 'bad finger'. I remember being oblivous and asking what I did. She told me the middle finger was bad and I said I didn't believe her, to stop making stuff up. Haha, I was a dumb agressive kid.

When I was little, my brother used to tell me these ubsurd things about him. I normally didn't believe him. One day, my dad was watching an old James Bond movie. I asked my brother if he knew anybody that was a spy. He said that he was a spy,and that when we were away from mom and dad, he would eat me. I stayed away from him for the next week.

At my primary school, they corridors had lino on the floor with a pattern of grey squares with a few black squares dotted around at random intervals. On the way to + from assembly I would play a little game with myself, trying not to stand on the black squares. When a few of my classmates asked why I was doing this, I told them the first thing that came into my hea, ie. that the black squares were magic holes + they might open up if you stand on them, + you'd fall through to the centre of the earth.
Of course they were all terrified of falling through the holes, + some were a bit P'ed off that I hadn't told them sooner.

this actually happened about a month ago, and my friend and i are both 15. my weird friend was arguing with little kids because they didnt want people to hurt animals, but they still ate meat. my friend, is obesessed with bears. we call her bear. she also is obsessed with eggo waffles, so i told her that eggos had bits of real bears in them. she was like, "no they dont..." but after five minutes of a really serious face she bought it. it was great. she believed it for about 2 hours before someone told her she was a total idiot. she doesnt take sarcasm well either.

My parents used to tell me that when I was lying I'd get a black dot on my tongue. I got to the point when I didn't believe it anymore. One day I was eating black liquorish, or something of the sort and told a lie. My dad asked to see my tongue, and then said that he saw a black spot. I didn't believe him, so he told me to take a look in the mirror. I saw the black spot and burst into tears. I tried SO hard not to lie to him afterward.

I thought grown-ups NEVER lied. A grown up probably lied to me.

One day my friend Amy came to school and told me about the new skyscraper her parents had gotten her. I was extremely jealous and wondered why I didn't have a small rocket to fly around in.

We were visiting my grandmother ( I must have been 6) and on the way into the house I found a puddle in her driveway that was filled with all these colorful oil swirls. I proceeded to swirl them around even more with my finger. I went in the house and washed my hands at my mother's insistence. As I was drying them off, My sister who was 2 years older came up behind me shaking her head but looking like it was a lost cause. You shouldn't have done that. You can't mix oil and water. Now your hand is going to catch on fire. So I waited in terror for the next couple of hours, watching and waiting for my hand to burst into flames!

We were watching a house fire on the news and I was about 4 or 5 and my older sister who would have been 7 or 8 told me that everyone's house would burn down at some point in their life. She also told me the same thing about accidentally stapling your finger like she did one day. I was terrified of the day that I'd have to feel that pain.

i had a firend in elementary school named April. One time she showed me a sparkly diamond (which I now know was fake) and said she had tunnels under her bed and in the tunnels were tons of diamonds. For a long time I wanted to go under her bed and look for diamonds.She never would let me. She also had many other stories that i believed.

when i went through my 'lying stage' at about 3 years old, my mom figured out a way to stop me of it. She would say that if she knew I was lying that my tongue would turn blue. So, when I would lie (which is obvious at 3), my mom would say, 'Let me see your tongue'. She would say, 'Yep, just as I thought, you were lying'. Then, I would look in the mirror and there it was - a big blue tongue.
Everytime she would say let me see your tongue, she would touch it with her finger which had blue food coloring on it. After a couple of times, she would not have to catch me in a lie bc I would give myself away by looking in the mirror before I did lie.
I stopped the incesant lying.

When my friend Liz and I were in second or third grade, I thought it would be really slick to trick the neighbor boy into thinking Liz's name was really Zelda. He fell for it, and we felt so cool, almost like spies. Sometimes I would slip up and call her "Liz" in front of my neighbor, but I covered it up by saying I was confusing "Zelda" with her twin sister, Liz.
