ten random beliefs
The lollypop man's job was to give children lollypops.
How disappointed I was when I met one. :D
I remember watching a television show about how SOMEDAY the sun would turn into a red giant and burn the Earth up.
Well, I thought that meant like NEXT WEEK, so for days I kept glancing at the sun through squinted eyes to see if it was getting bigger.
I used to believe that I could pull my ears off. So every night before going to bed, I would tug relentlesly at my ears! Why I wanted them to come off I don't know!
I knew a boy in first grade who didn't think people from England spoke English. As best I can figure it, he figured that accents qualified as other languages.
When you open a fresh can of soda the carbonation rises out in a steam-like gas. I asked my mom what it was and she must have said it was the carbonation, but I went on for the rest of my life thinking the caffine was coming out of it. (this was cleared up last week.)
My mom and dad didn't want me to drink caffine pop so I would try to suck it out (with my mouth) when it rose up so there wouldn't be any left in the can and, therefore, I wouldn't be drinking it.
I just ignored the "caffine" that rose out of the caffine-free popcans, as that defied my theory.
I couldn't understand how the medicine used to know where in your body was sore. How did it know whether you had a toothache or a tummy ache? I thought my mum must give it directions as she poured it onto the spoon.
i used to look at the horizon and use my finger to take little steps from where i was up to the horizon and since it took like 3-4 steps little finger steps i thought i could actually walk there in 3-4 steps.
i used to believe "eaves drop" was actually "ears drop"
When I was about four, my grandmother joked that she was twenty-one. I believed her, despite the fact I knew my mother was in her thirties and you needed to be a certain age to have kids. I just thought it didn't make sense because I was bad at math.
my parents told me that santa hired elves that made cookies and built toys and they lived among us (i had discovered my uncle was dressed as santa one year) and so my aunt and uncle were secret "elves" and that was how there were so many santas in so many shopping malls, because the elves relayed the information back to headquarters. i couldn't believe i had elves in my family.
