ten random beliefs
As a kid I believed that the mice from the movie "Bernard & Bianca" where my friends and lived in my closet. I secretly brought them food that i placed in my wardrobe. Several years later in my teens I told my mom this and she finaly understood why there had been so much mice my closet.
Until I was 5 or 6 I had 6 imaginary monkeys who went everywhere with me. Some days my Grandad took me to nursey school by bus. My Mum would wait with us at the bus stop and then cringe with embarrassment as she had to lift each monkey onto the bus with me, and I counted them on! One day my uncle was driving me to nursery school. As he got into the drivers seat I screamed. He quickly ran round to my door and opened it, thinking he must have closed my finger in the door. I can still see his face when I told him I was ok but he had locked all my monkeys out!!
When I was a child, my mom would bring our cats into my bedroom to keep me company if I was sick. I believed that our cats must have some sort of magical medicine in their fur that would help me to get better. Why else would she bring them in every time I was ill?
When I was younger I asked my mom why you had to go slow past a school (school zones) and she told me it was in case a kid ran out in front of the car you would be able to stop quick enough to get out and spank them. I was VERY careful not get off the sidewalk when I was at school for a long time after that!
When my sister was very little, before she could see over the pew in church, she thought that it was actually God speaking during the mass...
WHEN I WAS YOUNGER I USED TO BELIEVE THAT THE CATS EYES IN THE ROAD WERE ACTUALLY GLOW IN THE DARK CRYSTALS. I WAS GOING TO BUY A HOUSE NEAR A MAIN ROAD AND DIG THEM UP AT NIGHT TO LIGHT UP MY ROOM. IT WAS A SAD DAY WHEN I FOUND OUT THEY WERE ONLY REFLECTORS.
I was 19 when I was singing "Dirty Deeds Dunder Chicken" which my now husband looked and said WHAT? The AC/DC song Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheep was on. He died laughing. I just knew Done Dirt Cheap was Dunder Chicken.
This was when I was very young and the BBC weather used to consist of a man walking by several maps and sticking pictures of clouds and suns to the map. Probably because adult world seemed aloof and bizarre, I used to imagine that the weather man was infact held inside a giant dome covered in weather maps, and he was doomed to spend an eternity in this empty twilight zone walking around his vast prison reading the weather.
When I was little we would take a ferry to get to my grandparents' house. So when my parents said the tooth "fairy" was coming, I thought they meant "ferry". So I imagined a big ferry coming into my room at night, and the little captain would get off the ship and take my tooth and leave money.
I went with my mum and dad to see my uncle's new office. We were the only ones there as it was evening and my mum told me this certain empty desk was where my uncle's secretary worked. For some reason I thought secretary meant a sinister, shiny dark red robot. That's how I saw it in my head. I kept nagging them to leave as I was terrified it would come in.
