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!

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.

When I was little my parents told me that the oil rigs off of the coast were pirate ships, and that they would come and take me away if I was bad. It frightened me so much, it even brought me to tears once.

when I was a kid my brother used to tell me that a priest will come out of my wound. The larger the wound is, the larger the stuff that will come out, for ex: a bus or an airplane for bigger wounds.

i used to believe (thank you, older siblings) that i had a twin with no belly button that went to school for me when i was sick. she lived in the laundry room.
