I can't think of any that I've ever thought of and been bright red full of embarressment later but a woman at where my mom works was asking my mom what to cook for the people there (she works in an old peoples home) and my mom said faggots, to which the woman said to my mom "Hey whats a faggot look like?" to which my mom showed her the packet and said that they looked like what they do on the packet. The woman replied with "Noo I mean what do they look like before the animal is killed etc etc"
I was told that when you swallowed chewing gum it would wrap round your heart and kill you so i spent that night crying myself to sleep worring that i would die because i couldn't tell my parents. i believed that for quite a few years
For some reason I was convinced there were crocodiles living in my toilet.
Haaa also another thing but it's too rude or whatever to post here, lets just say my dad got the fright of his life when I told him that me and my friends were getting together to have a ...... when I was 9. I thought it meant something else!
I used to think that little tiny worker elf men things made everything work.
I thought there were a few in the traffic lights to make them change.
I thought that when you had a blocked nose little men would build a wall in your nose so you couldn't breathe out of it properly.
I used to sit in front of the mirror and try and find it. And stick my fingers up there to find it too.
And, in primary school we did this project about chilly billy, a guy who lived in your fridge and you never saw him because he'd always hind behind the lettuce when you opened your fridge and he was really fast at moving.
I thouht that was true and kept trying to catch him out everytime I went to the fridge.
Also that there was such a tasty thing as 'mental [lentil] soup'.
That made me giggle. I used to call pilchards, pillocks.
My brothers convinced me the Boogey Man was real and he'd come to get you if you picked your nose.
And because of Rugrats I thought you could get sucked down the bath drain and you had to get out of the bath before you pulled the plug out because you'd get washed away.
You can't lose hope when it's hopeless.
You gotta hope more,
then put your fingers in your ears and go,
"Blah blah blah blah!"
And I used to believe that those childproof bottles etc KNEW that you were a child and that's why you couldn't open it. I clearly remember asking what age I had to be before it would let me.
bwhahaha. That's a good one
When I was 10 and my sister dorothy was 7 I got this really cool science booklet from my parents that had fun facts about the solar system, earths population, the black plague. It was very educational but also really interesting to me. It was such a weird looking booklet that one day I started telling my sister dorothy that it was given to me by aliens, that it was really advanced and humans didn't know these things yet. She believed me for a while .
