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.

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 about 6 years old I thought that if you repeated a lie to yourself for several minutes that it wasn't a lie anymore. I learned that I was really mistaken when I was caught doing something that I had lied about.

My horrible older brother told me that I came free with a box of washing powder and that is why my family had to keep me.

I'm 5 years older than my sister. Even so, when I was around 10 she could still get me in trouble with my mum by saying 'he did it' these were invariably lies.. I convinced her that her eyes turned from blue to green when she lied. Boy this worked a treat - from then on she covered her eyes up when 'snitching' to mum... Problem solved :-). She's 30 now and still cant tell a porky without averting her eyes somehow.

I used to think that a con artist was someone who was really good at making complicated art.

When I was very little, in elementary school, my brother told me that when I was a baby, he had taught me how to catch frisbees in my mouth, like a dog. He stopped doing it, though, and over time, I forgot how, hence why I wasn't able to do it anymore.

We had to write a small "report" talking about ourselves, telling what we thought about ourselves and our lives, like explaining who we were. I mentioned, "And when I was little, I could catch frisbees in my mouth." I totally believed him. The other day when visiting my mom, I found the very report I wrote. It was true. I wrote that. She kept it for that reason.

When I was little my mom and her neighbor used to go repelling off cliffs. Me, my brother, and the neighbors kids all stayed at the top of the cliff (I was the youngest, around 4 or 5 so I was tied to a tree with a harness and a leash)
One time, one of the neighbors untied me and sprinkled dirt in my hair and told me it was fairy dust from tinkerbell and that I could now fly. Luckily my mom was standing between me and the edge of the cliff and caught me when I tried to run off it.

I believed for some time that a store in our town, "Toys Topless", was a convertible car accessories store, as my mom said when I asked (even though it had blacked out windows and creepy guys walking into it).

When I was little my mom told me that when I lied a blue dot only mommies could see appeared on my forehead so every time I lied I put my hand over my forehead...

We went to the beach for a week once, and my cousins and me were going out to the boardwalk to go on rides and stuff. My youngest cousin was too young to go, and so we told him we were being forced to go to the broccoli museum. He laughed at us when we got back because he got to stay home and play cards with my grandmother while we were forced to eat broccoli. ^_~

When I was five, I really admired my six-year-old cousin and believed everything she said. One day she had received a toy doctor's set, with a stethescope, nurse's hat, tongue depressors, bandages and a plastic pair of scissors. When I asked what they were for, she told me they were used to cut off patient's fingers if they weren't able to fix them. For years I refused to even pick them up in case I accidentally lopped off a finger.

I used to believe that when ever you lied, a small part of your heart turned black. When your heart was completly black, you had a heart attack and died.

I also used to believe my mom when she told me that there is a special bone in the pinky that could be felt only if you lied.

I believed my Daddy when he told me if I sat on a coconut long enough, it would hatch a baby monkey! I tried for months but obviously no success...lol. Almost forty years later and I still think of baby monkeys whenever I see a coconut. :)

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.

After watching many films I believed I was a princess and my family was my guardians. I thought they were waiting till I turned 16 till they told me the truth. I grew out of it eventually but I never told anyone for fear that the person they were hiding me from would find out.
