ten random beliefs
My dad told me the hazard light button was actually for the ejection seat. And we didn't know which one it ejected. Thanks Dad.
I used to believe that every day tiny little people, with tiny suits and breifcases and costumes, came to my house to work in the TV.
I thought that clowns were born that way, with the funny hair and make-up. It was just like any other birth defect a child can imagine. I assumed that they worked in the circus because that was the only place they could get work. For a long time I didn't want children, just in case they were born clowns. To this day I find clowns kind of creepy.
WHEN I WHAS A KID I COULDENT READ THAT GOOD SO IN THE END OF A MOVIE WHEN THE CAST CAME I TOUGHT IT WHAS "CATS" AND IT MENT OF ALL THE CATS IN THE MOVIE
At about age 7 I thought one could see the people running around on a map, if one looked hard enough.
This is my brother's belief and he won't admit to it. He was around 3 and wanted to know why there were books in the drawer in our hotel room. I told him it was placed there by the Gideons. Gideons were tiny people who came into the hotel rooms and put bibles in the drawers. About 5-6 years later, we were in the grocery store and he seen a Little Person (person of very short stature) and was he excited and pointed, "Look! A Gideon! There's a Gideon!". I fessed up the truth, after I stopped laughing.
I used to think that The Great Wall of China was made out of porcelain.
When I was very little, a kindergarten classmate told me that naked pictures of people were very very bad and they were called pornography. I was to young to grasp this concept, however I remembered the word. I spent the next week secretly angry at my Grandparents. I thought they were bad people because they had a few classical art paintings hung throughout their house, in which half naked people and cherubs were painted. I told my mom one day, "I love Grandma, but I wish she didn't have so much pornography in her house." My mom was shocked, she burst out laughing. She set me straight.
I used to believe that I could pull my ears off. So every night before going to bed, I would tug relentlesly at my ears! Why I wanted them to come off I don't know!
There was stretch of road with big, old overhanging trees that Mom used to drive us through. At the beginning of this stretch there was a "Beware of Pedestrians" sign. We told our little brother that "pedestrians" were like octopus in the trees that dropped down on the cars and ate everybody in them. He believed this for years, poor kid.
