I used to believe that as I got older, games and cartoons would stop being fun for me, I would start wanting to wear more plain clothing, candy and desserts wouldn't taste as good anymore and I would no longer need to sleep with my stuffed rabbit. Now I'm twenty-two. So far, none of these things have happened. Here's hoping they never will.
When I was quite young, I use to think TB shots (for tuberculosis) were TV shots, and you got them so if you watched too much television you wouldn't get TV eyes, like in the kids' book The Boy with Square Eyes.
I believed Tea is for men and coffee for women. (Because our mother drinks only coffee and our father only tea, my sister and I thought it was an universal rule...)
When I was a kid someone told me that if you farted underwater, the bubbles would make you explode.
I never farted underwater...
I once believe that if I poke my belly button it will become wider as I grow older, even my sister tells me that. But then, I notice out that it still has the same size just from before. Lol
i used to belive that you drive your car on the line in the street.
Not directly related to Santa Claus, but when I first heard of Cupid from classical mythology, I immediately thought of Cupid, one of Santa's reindeer. I figured they must be one and the same, since they're both mythological figures who can fly. When asked how this is possible, I explained that Cupid is an angel the rest of the year, but transforms himself into a reindeer at Christmastime. The other reindeer can do this too, but they tend to keep on the down-low because they're shy.
I used to think tardy meant that you're being a r e t a r d then one day the teacher said that I was tardy and the teacher explained it to me
