ten random beliefs

Back in the fifth grade we used to drop money into the heater in the girls bathroom for 'The Michael Jackson Fund'. We believed that Michael Jackson came to the school at night to collect his money and whoever put in the most would be considered a super cool chick. I remember one girl dropped a five dollar bill in and the next day it was gone. That was proof enough! No wonder the janitors were always so happy and had jingly pockets...

How much plastic surgery did we pay for?

When I was in kindergarten our class learned the song Rudolph the Red nosed Reindeer - and the line about him going down in history confused me, so I asked mum what HISTORY was. She told me it was all about old men and women and buildings. So for the longest time I imagined this giant hole (kind of like a swirling black hole) that sucked old people and buildings in - since Rudolph was going to go down into it.

I used to believe that when you put bills into a vending machine, it shredded them. (Because of the noise.) What stymied me though, was when you hit the change return it GAVE THE BILL BACK. I couldn't figure out how the machine put the pieces back together so seamlessly. And it WAS the same bill, cuz I tested it by writing down the serial number. :|

I used to believe that Jesus was crucified in Pantasaph near my home town in North Wales. I was always fascinated by his ability to talk in tongues as that was obviously why no-one referred directly to him speaking Welsh.

My son once asked my wife what she was doing. She said she was making develed eggs. He asked for one. She said they weren't ready. He said he would wait until she put the devil in them.

Back in elementary school, our school song would start: "Emerson, Emerson, E-M-E-R-S-O-N," and so on. As a kindergardener, I had no idea how to spell the school name, so I would choose random letters to go in that part, such as "E-V-R-T-N-P-N" until I gathered up enough courage against sounding stupid to ask how it was really spelled.

I used to believe that people really got killed in movies and on television. I didn't understand why they would give up their lives for the sake of entertainment.

When I was young, I thought chickens laid nuggets, just like they lay eggs. I was horrified when my cousin told me the truth.
