When I was 5, my 10 year old sister told me that our family was once so poor, we had to live in a matchbox. I believed her!

When I was just about in kindergarten, I was at the park with my daycare when a group of older girls told me that if you went to California, doctors would sew your private parts shut so you couldn't go to the bathroom, and all the waste would store up inside you until you popped. I believed this wholeheartedly because they were older, and older kids (in my mind) never lied. Imagine my poor mom's surprise when she asked me if I would like to go on vacation to California and I bawled my eyes out! I was immensely relieved when she told me it wasn't true, and I announced it to the older girls at daycare the next day. I still have a good laugh about that one.

When I was about seven years old, my cousin convinced me that my "real" cousin and her best friend had been abducted by aliens when they were younger...and she said that she was my cousin's "alien" replacement... It took me a few years to figure out that she was lying to me!!

When I was little my brother told me there was a house for sale for 3 dollars. I spent years dreaming about what I could have done and when I was 9 I finally realized he was lying.

My friend, a rabid liar, told me in the first grade that he had tied up my dad in his living room. He tols me he put his baby brother on his head to make him look taller and put on a disguise. He also explained that our computer was having trouble because his baby brother had drooled on the keyboard. I half believed him for a while.

I have known my best friend for about 20 years but when we first met I couldn't stand her. I thought I was quite a clever child and I knew that 'twins' meant 'identical' so I was always angry with my friend because she used to say she and he brother were twins and I knew that was a lie because she was a girl and he was a boy. I couldn't understand why she lied so much or how she thought anyone would believe her!

I used to believe that lies can get bigger and bigger if you hold them in. So when my sister went up to me and asked if i forgot to flush the toilet. I said "YES! I AM SORRY! I PROMISE I WON'T DO IT AGAIN! I WON'T HOLD IN THE LIE ANYMORE! IT WILL GET BIG AND I WILL BLOW UP!!!"

I have brothers who are quite a bit older than me. When I was 3 or 4, there were a few books on my brother's bookshelf that I was told would hurt me if I opened them. I remember being 7 or 8 and my mother and I were cleaning off the shelf. She reached for the Fred Flintstone book and I began screaming, "Don't open it! Don't open it!" I thought a razor blade (the most deadly thing I knew of then) was going to fall out of the pages.

What a cruel way to keep your baby sister from coloring in your books.

When I was little by brother told me the UPS guy had such a big truck because when the UPS guys found little girls playing outside without their parents they would steal them. One day the UPS guy stopped outside my house and I was playing outside. He walked up to me and I screamed, "Leave Me Alone" and I ran away from him. I still believed it even after my mother told me it wasn't true!

When my friend was a little girl, her sisters told her that the UPS guy came to the houses to retrieve little girls so they could keep them as pets in the back of their trucks. Whenever she saw a UPS guy drive up she would start bawling!

when my brother and I were younger, like 7 and 5, I had told him that our parents had allowed him to be part of a top secret government experiment. They had taken a cow's brain and his brain and switched them! He had the cow's brain and somewhere there was a cow with his brain. I told him that he couldn't ever tell mom that he knew or the experiment would be a flop and the government would come and take him away. One day when we were older, 12 and 10, we were hanging with mom and he broke down and tears and told mom that 'he knew about the cow's brain'. I had to excuse myself from the room I was laughing so hard. We're 30 & 28 now and I still moo at him when he's done something stupid!
