ten random beliefs
I used to belive that if you sat on the toilet to long, and then flushed it,right after you flushed a mermaid would flip ot of your toilet and flip back in.
After watching "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" I thought that cartoon characters were just people in cartoon costumes.
When I was little my Dad told me Japanese people work hard and eat raw fish called sushi. I imagined a man pulling a wriggling fish out of the ocean and biting right into it. I thought the Japanese must work so hard they have no time to cook the fish!
I used to think that stones had feelings, and hated having to stay out in the cold and get rained on. So every time my parents took me outside, I'd collect piles of rocks and only abandon one when I saw another that looked more in need of rescue.
when i was little, thinking about growing taller made me sad because that meant i would be farther away from my feet, who happened to be my very good friends at the time.
My mother used to get incredibly frustrated when trying to order clothes for me out of a catalog. I persisted in the belief that if I wore the clothes that were pictured, I would look identical to the person who was wearing them in the catalog -- right down to hair and eye color.
When I was little i thought that the mirrors in the bathroom were actually cameras and people were watching me, so i sang and danced for them and even did toliet paper commercials.
When I was a kid I just assumed that you could have any sort of beard you wanted when you grew up. I liked the big curly "Homeric" beards on Greek statues, and decided that was the kind I was going to have.
It was a bit of a disappointment to end up with something that looks like a rat's nest.
For a while I thought Anon was a name of an ancient philosopher. Probably Greek.
I used to believe that when you shut your eyes, that your eyes did actually roll back and there was something you could do to switch on a light back there and you would see clockwork working to move your eyes.I used to stand in front of the mirror with one eye shut and one eye open to let the light in through one eye so i could see the back of my other eye!
