ten random beliefs

When I was four, my dad's best friend told me that the black olives on his pizza were cockroaches (to keep me from eating his pizza - how much pizza could a four year old eat?). To this day, I can't eat black olives.

Foreign movies and sitcoms on TV are always dubbed in Turkish before they are shown on Turkish channels. I thought that all the actors on tv and in the movies could perfectly speak Turkish and all other languages.

I used to believe that on films when the cast came up on the end of films 'in order of appearance' it meant how good-looking they were. I always got confused watching the hunchback of notre dame, where frolo came before phoebus!

A young lady called Sue once told me that when she was a little girl, she believed that grown-ups couldn't run - for the obvious reason that she had never seen any of them running. One day, she gave cheek to her father, then ran away, supremely confident that he would never be able to run after her. That was the day she was disabused of that delusion.

When I was a little girl living in Washington State, we would somtimes drive past the Hanford Atomic Works in Eastern Washington. This was during the height of the Cold War, and there was lots of information floating around about the dangers of atomic radiation.

I was so scared that I used to hold my breath for as long as possible whenever we passed through the Hanford area. I thought that if I didn't inhale, the radiation coudln't "get" me.

I used to believe that by making my parents promise (every night) to see me in the morning i wouldn'tr be killed by them in my sleep. I believed that they would stab me during the night, or poison me with cooked apples. I still don't eat cooked apples.

Even though I was already eleven years old, I was really terrified by the movie posters for "Carrie" when it came out. I didn't know anything about the story or why this poor girl was covered in blood. I assumed it was just one more random and scary thing that could happen to people. For a long time I was afraid that blood would suddenly come gushing out all over me for no reason.
