Wash behind your ears or you'll grow taters. Clean under your bed or monsters will grow under there. (Dad was kind of mad at Mom for that one. He lost a lot of sleep, over it.) Don't eat the watermelon seeds it will grow in you stomach.

I remember this one! I still think about that every time I'm on an escalator. lol
My mom used to always tell me not to step on top of sewer grates because I would fall in and be stuck underground forever. She now denies doing this, but I remember! I believed her for years and started crying when my cousin decided to prove her wrong one day. I kept waiting for him to fall in and when he didn't, I was furious that I had believed that it would happen. I rebelled by jumping on top of every sewer I came across for months.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now. Dylan

My mom got the idea somewhere that playing in a sprinkler would cause polio or make me sick and susceptible to polio? She is a very intelligent woman, I have no idea why she thought this when i was a kid. So, anyway, I was the only kid on the block who could not play in the lawn sprinkler.
From other kids not my parents: Don't swallow your gum or your stomach will stick together.

My grandmother used to tell me this one,and I think its based in something old,and where all seed stories come from .
My grandmother was born in the 1800s so ...old.
She always said to never swallow apple seeds,or an apple tree would grow in my stomach.
Other kids knew this one as well,and from what I know now,a lot of seeds,including apple ,contain arsenic .
If an adult swallows a small amt of arsenic ,it won't hurt them,but a child,even small doses are dangerous .

If you keep misbehaving you'll be sent to Maggie Murphy's Home for Bad Children where you are beaten senseless night and day by Cinderella's cousins who are even uglier and crueller than her step-sisters!
And if that doesn't buck your ideas up, you'll be going straight to The Bad Fire *satanic music*.
*normal music* (All for peein' in the sink... pfft)
