ten random beliefs

Up until I was 14 (and I'm only 15 now!!), I used to believe that a widow was someone who had lost their husband and a widower was someone who had killed a husband. This was clarified for me one day when my mom and I met an older couple. "How nice, the widow and the widower" My mom said after they left. I freaked out yelling about why hadn't they put him in jail.

When I was 6 I used to believe that all plumbers were secretly puffafish and thats why they had to work with water-related appliances etc. The next time our plumber came to install the shower I cried and hid in my room because I thought he was going to puff up and eat me

My older sisters loved Gloria Estefan when I was little. One of their favorite songs to play was "Rhythm is Gonna Get You." I was terrified, because I didn't know what rhythm was, and I didn't want it to get me when I turn out all the lights!

When I was little, I thought that cars were psychic. It blew my mind that every time we came up on a turn, the car would blink this little arrow telling the direction we should turn, and we always turned that way! I was very disappointed when I found out that my father was responsible for the blinker coming on, not the car itself. :D

At the end of church service our pastor always said, "Go in peace, serve the lord." To which the congregation would reply in unison, "Thanks be to god."

I always thought it was because we were all glad it was over.

When I was younger I used to believe that Albuquerque was in Japan, because my Japanese grandparents had a house there. This illusion was shattered when the pizza man came to the door and spoke english.... and was white.

for quite few years I believed my Dad had swapped feet with my Grandad. An uncle pursuaded me that this was true when I was about 3 years old, after I'd seen my Grandad wearing my dad's shoes.

When I was about eight, I saw scientists on a TV news show talking about how dinosaurs had evolved into smaller animals. Somehow I missed the part about which animals (birds and whatnot) and I believed for a considerable amount of time that dinosaurs has shrunken down to insect size and lived underground. So I would dig for them under this big pine tree in my yard.
