My View of Anatomy as a Kid

This is embarrassing, but it is true.

When I was a kid, I used to think that your kidneys looked like white Hershey Kisses and were located in your shoulder area.  I also thought that your feelings resided in your teeth — your sadness or happiness could actually be located in your molars.  If that was not bad enough, I also thought that the complex inner workings of your body consisted of a long tube that went down to your stomach — no doubt having watched many indigestion commercials.  Last but not least, I would like to thank many Valentine’s Day card exchanges for my understanding of the elaborate heart that kept me alive.  Also, thanks to the Pledge of Allegiance for causing me to think that my heart was where my left lung hangs out.  For any clarification, please see the diagram below.

    The Hershey kiss kidneys look effective. Did we even have white chocolate Hershey kisses then??

    Maybe your next blog should reveal your childhood concepts regardings the origin of curse words.

  2. You know the grin in the diagram creeps me out. At first, I thought it was because of the chesire cat aspect, but now I think it is because the grin is on level with his ears. Where your nose should be.
