ten random beliefs
I used to believe that moustaches were actually just long flowing nose hair. I thought it was rather disgusting.
As I child my mom would always take my to the catholic church to a confession booth so that god can forgive my sins. At one point of the confession the priest puts his hand before the person confessing and I always wondered why.
When I got out of the booth I asked my older brother why and he thought It would be funny to say, "You are suppose to high five him!"
So for many years I believed that I was suppose to high five the priest. I'm 17 now and I just realized I wasn't suppose to..
i used to believe that all the water i the world came from watermelons, i asked my mom how many watermelons it took to make the oceans. she thought i was crazy
I used to think our lawn mower was called a "lawn lower". This made sense because it made the grass lower. When I found out I was wrong I still thought my way made more sense because I didn't think "mower" was even a real word. By the time I was 8 I finally got it right.
I believed that the yellowish foam by the ocean was dolphin pee because my dad told me
When I was little, I used to believe the cause of earthquakes were Gorillas and Monkeys standing on my rooftop shaking the house, kinda like King Kong. After the big '94 earthquake that took place in Northridge, California, I ran out my house looking for the monkeys, but was very disappointing when I couldn't find any. It wasn't until years later when I learned about science and seismic waves that I understood the real cause of earthquakes.
When I walked to kindergarten, I passed a building with a sign that said "Office"
I firmly believed that the office had a floor of ice, and that the sign was a warning to stay off of that ice!
There was also a sign that said "Notice" and I believed that the sign told you there was no more ice.
When I was about 10 or 11 I used to believe that the mile high club was a group of powerful business men in suits who would fly around the world on a huge fancy private jet, staying up for days at a time, drinking and smoking cigars and discussing their plans to manipulate markets, politics and wars for their own gain. I was disappointed when I found out it was just about sex, my version seemed much cooler.
As a child I was terrified of vomiting...especially in public. The only place, besides home, I felt safe was in church, because I knew God would never allow me to vomit in church!
One day as we were leaving church after mass, we saw that someone had vomited on the steps. From then on, I became afraid of going to mass also.
My parents used to joke that the dirt in my ears could grow fruit and I believed them. they would pretend to pull grapes and strawberries out of my ears. I would often ask them to check. When I told them that the kids in kindergarten didn't believe me they started pulling bigger and bigger fruit out of my ear to try to drop a hint. After the oranges and grapefruits didn't work, they just told me the truth. I was sooo mad and disappointed I shut myself in my room for the day.
