ten random beliefs

I used to believe that getting grey hair was the warning that the lifetime's supply of hair in your head was running out. (A bit like a roll of tape in a cash register turns a different colour to let you know it's nearly all gone).

when I was very young, i was convinced that all my grandmother did between the times I saw her was stand at her dorr waving.. as it was the last thing she did when we left, and the first thing she did when we arrived. Sometimes i would not see her for weeks and worry that she must get exausted.

For no apparent reason, I used to envision heaven as a series of rooms connected by tunnels. In the biggest room, God sat in a throne and Jesus sat at his right side. In the corner of the room, there was a trap door where dead bodies would come from Earth. Worker angels would pile the bodies up in stacks, then later come back and zap them with afterlife. Then they would turn into angels and float around through the tunnels. I didn't really look forward to heaven.

When I was 5 and my brother was 4, a close family friend died. My brother thought that she would come back to life in 3 days. We were raised Catholic and he thought that the Jesus story applied to everyone who died.

Whenever my grandmother would come to visit she would always leave a bit before 9:00 saying "Grandma turns into a pumpkin at 9:00." I always thought she would literally turn into a pumpkin, and I would try to find ways to make her accidentally stay past 9:00 so I could see it.

When I was 7 my older sister and all of the lifeguards at my neighborhood pool convinced me that there was a thing called a wetifyer. If you turned the wetifyer off then once you got out of the pool you would no longer be wet. I believed them until I finally became a lifeguard myself and asked my boss where the wetifyer was located...

I loved the Carebears up until i watch one movie. All I remember was the bad guy was using the nightmares of children to steal the world's love or something equally cartoonish. But I remember that in the scary part of the movie everything turned black and white as the villian stole all the love. I got FREAKED! I thought it was really happening because the tv color was gone! I cried until my mom turned the station to show me that only that channel was black and white but it was too late. No more Carebears for me.

I used to think veternarians and vegetarians were the same thing. In my mind, veternarians didn't eat meat because they loved animals. It seemed logical at the time.

As a kid I desperately wanted to be a Girl Guide, but I thought you had to be born one, like being an Orthodox Jew or a Catholic. I couldn't wait till I grew up, could convert to being a Girl Guide, and get to wear a blue uniform all day and earn badges.

Whenever my mom and I crossed the street together, she told me to hold her hand. When I asked her why, she told me that the people in the cars couldn't see me, meaning that I was short and therefore couldn't be seen. However, I thought that she meant that I had the amazing power of becoming invisible whenever I crossed the street.This meant that I was free to make weird faces at innocent people whenever I stepped off the curb. After I discovered that this wasn't true, I lived in fear of random people coming to get me for making faces at them.
