ten random beliefs
my friend told me that there was a lady who lived in the back of the toilet and the sound that came when you flush was actually a warning that she was coming and you had 5 sec. to leave before she ate you.
I used to think one word in English was another word in another language.
I.E.- cat might mean hair
I would shout random words at my sister thinking I was yelling at her in French. ::shakes head::
My Dad use to tell me if I pouted and stuck my lower lip out, a bird would come and poop on my lip.
I used to believe that my parents relied on me to make the traffic lights green. I would do this by absorbing the green from trees and grass with my eyes and beam it into the traffic lights. If i was given enough time i had a 100% success rate.
I don't remember why, but when I was about 7 I thought that touching raw turnips would burn you. I was helping my mom in the kitchen one day when she asked me to put some sliced turnips in a bowl. She was confused when I proceeded to put on gloves.
I used to think that the three wise men from the song " We three Kings" were from space. In the song the real lyrics go
We three kings of Orient Are
Bearing Gifts, We traveled Afar
But i heard..
We three Kings of Orientar
Bearing Gifts We traveled Afar
i thought that they were the kings of some strange planet call orientar, after all if they came from a different planet they would have traveled afar...
When I was little my big sister told me to say hi and be nice to the mannequins at the mall because they were people too!
when was little i used to believe that if you won the grand national you would become prime minister
When I was in elementary school, my mom would always complain about the large amount of cops on the roads at the end of the month. She always said that they were "getting their quota in"....I thought she was saying "quarter" and for the longest time I thought cops got paid a quarter for every person they pulled over.
I remember a few imaginary friends growing up:
From about 6-7 I believed my name was Kelly and I had a host of older brothers (actually I was the oldest with a younger brother and sister). Some of them I remember were named Kevin and Ken. I can't remember how many of them there were but I do remember we worked in the circus as an acrobat act.
Later in middle school (about age 12-13) I had several animal friends, mostly a big Golden Retriever named Brownie and two squirrels named Chip and Dale. There may have been others; I remember a cat and a bird but I don't remember their names.
In high school I pretended (to myself) that I had a daughter named Faith at age 16 on my birthday. I imagined caring for her and reading about her stages. Even now at 29 I think about Faith and how now she would be 13!
