Whoa...  We might just have more than 6 listeners because we got A LOT of texts.  And all of these responses are pure gold.  This has to be the most fun we've ever had reading your #TQOTD responses.  We wanted to know the dumbest thing you did as a kid.  We had to post a video of the top 5ish because we were dying while reading them.  Kids are gullible as heck, aren't they!?

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What’s the dumbest thing you believed as a kid?

  • TQOD - I thought if I looked straight ahead and then sideways I could see around corners. I had a cousin that liked to jump-scare people so I would try to see if he was hiding before I got there.
  • TQOTD.. a sleepover in 5th grade turned ugly when an older girl shared the story of Bloody Mary.. I was so convinced this was true, I only looked into my kaboodle (makeup case) mirror to get ready for school. Clearly shouldn't come through that small of a mirror. To this day mirrors are still a little sketchy lol Have a good day ya'll ❤
  • TQOTD...camping with my dad as kids if we heard noises outside the tent it was probably the killer out of a horror movie. Or that's what he would tell us anyways 😱😩 nothing like nightmares of Michael Myers finding you in your tent when you are 10! #damnyoudad
  • My stepsister believed for a good 5 years that babies came from chewing gum because her mother was Constantly chewing gum While she was pregnant through 3 pregnancies. The chewing gum was to relieve cravings for cigarettes
  • My dad has an outy belly button and used to tell my siblings and I that if we touched his belly button that his guts would fall out.
  • My sister and I believed that a Disney character really called us to talk to us, but it was my uncle pretending to be Aladdin.
  • My mom used to tell me she had eyes in the back of her head while in the car but really she was just looking in the rearview mirror
  • I didn't use to believe this but when my brother was younger, me and my sister used to convince my brother that in Lake Michigan, there was a Kraken (like from the Pirates of the Caribbean) and there were little sharks that would eat little boys toes in Lake Michigan and he legit was scared of the water for the longest time. It was hilarious, and we still mock him about believing us to this day.
  • #tqotd Whenever I listened to the radio as a kid, I thought whoever was playing would be trapped inside of the car radio if I turned a song off before the song was over. I 100% believed there were little tiny people in the radio that played only for me and I wanted to make sure their efforts of playing were appreciated 😀
  • We convinced our little cousins that chocolate milk only came from brown cows!
  • My older cousins used to tell me that if I didn't duck going underneath the bridge anybody under the age of 15 will get their head cut off so, up until I was seventeen I still caught myself ducking underneath the bridge Knowing damn well that my head was not going to get cut off
  • My parents convinced us that Shania Twain had a wooden foot/leg. Not just like a nice prosthetic. A straight up wooden leg! I'm pretty sure that my older sister still believes it and she is 31.
  • My cousin told me that President Bill Clinton ate babies brains for breakfast. This is why 7-year-olds shouldn't discuss politics
  • Up until about 6 months ago I thought it was illegal to drive with your light on in your car because my mom told me it was illegal so I got pulled over and the cop asked me If I knew why I got pulled over and I said yes officer it's because I had my light on inside my car and he laughed at me and said no it's because you had your Brights on

First fight that my now husband and I ever had was when I was in my TWENTIES when he told me Jackalopes weren't real. The next time we were at my Dad's, I asked him to show the pictures to.prove me right...and the look on his face when he realized I believed him all these years was priceless. He got out the pictures again of the very large jackrabbits with STICKS on their heads from a trip he took to Arizona
  • My cousins told me that if I ate a watermelon seed that a watermelon would grow in my stomach lol
  • Dumbest thing I used to believe as a kid: I thought the traffic signs that said “Do not pass” meant you couldn’t pass that sign. I would constantly panic and tell my dad, “I don’t think we’re supposed to be here!!”
  • When Titanic came out, I was obsessed and watched it all the time. During the scene where Jack is painting Rose like one of his "French women," my little sister asked me what a prostitute (sorry fish, idk the radio appropriate name)was.
