When I was a kid I thought that there was only a small number (fewer than 100) bad people in the whole world, If only it were true...

I used to believe that if you told a lie that your face would develop blue spots. It was actually just my mum trying to scare me into telling her the truth!

I wanted a little sister so badly when I was 7 that I told my dad every morning for a month as he dropped me off for school--to go find an orphanage and take home a little girl. I believed that while I was at school, he would be out looking for orphanages, and I would be daydreaming about how much I could teach my new little sister. But whenever he picked me up and I asked him about it, he'd say he didn't go today. I was always so disappointed!

I believed that when you lied, a silver screwdriver would shoot out of Heaven and unscrew your bellybutton and your BUTT would FALL OFF, and you’d be SHOWN to be a liar!

How did I come up with that one? I didn’t– MOM told me that, and I believed her. Asked when I was grown up why she told me that, and she said, “Well, Suzi, whenever you were trying to lie to me, the first thing you did was cover your stomach”. Yup, my Mom!

When I was little, my dad told me the reason i got freckles is because he lifted me up against a screen when a cow farted then he would sit me out in the sun to dry. I believed him for years

my gram told me that if you could lick your elbow you would switch genders, if you were a girl you'd become a boy, and vice versa. i believed it for a good three years after that, and still check to make sure while looking like an idiot trying to lick my elbow.

When I was about 6, I had my little sister (age 3) convinced that a picture of a girl sitting in a field with a barn in the background was me before she was born and that we lived on that farm. I had her going for a few years before she realized it wasn't true.

I used to believe, thanks to my sister, that mannequins were once real people. She told me they were people that God had punished for being bad and they were 'frozen' forever.
