I disliked onions because they make you cry. Now I love to eat onions.

When I was very young, we would go to church and I couldnt read the words to songs but I wanted to sing a long. I would sing, not kidding here, “Pee and poop got married” “poop and pee got married” I’m crying laughing just typing this out….I have no idea where I got this from, why I thought this was what to sing in church and that no one ever said anything to me about it!!! 

 

I also believed for a very long time that eating the crusts of bread would make my hair curly. I wanted curly hair so I always did. I was in my twenties before I realized that my grandma just told me that so I would eat the whole sandwich.

I also believed that all eggs would hatch eventually unless you are them soon enough.

SoonAsYouCan:  my mom or my sister must have told me, but I thought potpourri would burn my hands (possibly off) if I touched it. I still feel nervous to touch it, lol.

When I was a teen, my little sister was maybe 4-5 and was watching me put makeup on. She asked what I was doing. I didn’t think twice about joking with her, so I said I was putting liquid skin on my face. Years later, she made a comment on how disgusting it is that people put liquid skin on as makeup. Lol. Oops.

I believed that watermelon seeds could grow inside you. I also thought (well my sister more than me) that the ‘Turn Left At Any Time With Care’ actually said ‘Turn Left Any Time With Care’ for years, despite seeing the sign all the time. And one that I thought I was the only one who believed it, turned out Fiance did too, the ‘y’ in the Disney logo was actually a ‘p’ so it said Walt Disnep!

ETA: And that if you threw a seed out the window, even if you completely ignored it after that and didn’t water it, it would grow. Yeah doesn’t work like that…

I thought if I prayed hard enough for it, that my eyes would turn from brown to blue overnight.

1 – Thanks to my Nan, I seriously believed that I got my cowlick from actually being licked by a cow. I had a lot of exposure to farm animals as my Grandparents from both sides of my family had home farms – so it seemed legit. I was a teenager when I finally came to realisation. I felt betrayed.

2 – As a little kid I was also told, by my step-dad, that if you lick your knife at dinner, you will grow a beak…

…At least the first one had some backup, but this was just random nonsense! But of course I believed him nonetheless.

Haha I love this stuff !

I was under the impression if you kept skinning your knees elbows etc, (which I always did) you’d eventually run out of layers of skin and you’d have an open wound forever D: freaked me out 

Also I thought when people got married the kiss that happened when they anounced you “man and wife” , was how ladies got pregnant, and it determined how many babies you’d have lol. But i always wondered why it took different amounts of time and why some married people never got pregnant. ;p

I love these.

For a long time, I thought that the man peed inside the woman to get her pregnant.

Me again, I keep on remembering stuff from my childhood. This thread is fun! Here are some more:

My makeshift fort of pillows & blankets protected me from monsters at all times.

My parents could never be wrong on anything & they are perfecrt people (I’m sure they brainwashed me…ugh, puh-leeze!!!).

I didn’t like the texture of beef so I never really ate it. The only reason I eat beef now is because a family friend told me I won’t be pretty when I grow up unless I start having some (I think we were having beef & broccoli for dinner and I was being difficult when I was told this). Of course, I believed it.

The moon was always following & watching me. I thought that if my Dad drove our car faster, I would have a better chance of “getting away” from the moon.

I got really confused when I saw an actor/actress in one channel then I switched channels and I see the same person again on a different channel. It never occured to me that almost all tv shows were pre-taped & needed to be edited first. I just assumed all tv shows were live. It even got more confusing when I watched tv at night and parts of the scenes occured outdors during daytime…HAHAHA

Oh my older sibling’s loved to make up stuff to trick me and unfortunately led me to believe one of my aunts had a glass eye, I always tried to figure out which one :/ I finally asked, very embarrassing, both eyes were real of course.

Also because of my sisters- I thought cows born on a hill had shorter legs on one side :s

lord I was gullible.
