ten random beliefs
I used to believe the local Catholic church was Disney Land.
When I was around two or three, I had an imaginary racoon called Marshmallow Marshmallow. The local children's library has different events every Summer, and I remember that one of my favorites was the Stuffed Animal Pet Show, which was meant for very young children, or those who had no pets. Despite the fact that I had a multitude of stuffed animals, I insisted on entering Marshmallow Marshmallow. Evidently the fact he was a real racoon, not a stuffed animal, didn't bother me.
I won the 'Most Imaginitive' category.
When I was 2 or 3, I would get fever blisters ALL the time. My brother, about 9 or 10 at that time, told me that there was a "scab fairy" and if I picked the scabs off of my fever blisters and put them under my pillow, the scab fairy would bring my a penny. I totally believed him, and that night, I put my scab under my pillow. I was so disappointed in the morning when I woke up and there was no penny. I thought that maybe the scab had come out from under my pillow, so the scab fairy didn't see it when she looked. I told my brother about it, he started laughing, and I then realized that there was no scab fairy.
My Parents were friends with a couple who owned a Pub in the country. In order to keep me on my best behaviour when we went to visit, I was told the the Man who owned the pub turned into the incredible Hulk when he was angry. I couldn't take that chance as I was so terrified of the Hulk at the time, so I behaved like a little angel.
I used to think that if a movie was advertised on the side of a bus, that meant it was really good.
I always heard the phrase "honor roll" as "on a roll". It made sense to me that if a person had mostly B's they would get a certificate saying "B On a Roll" like, "hey you're getting a lot of b's you're on a roll".
When my neighbor got a D on his report card, I asked him if there was a D "On a roll" and he punched me. Lessons learned the hard way.
i thought that if i dressed in my holly hobby doll's clothes, no one would be able to find me.
i used to believe thier was another me on the other side of the world, and we both did the same things at the same time.
i never could figure out if i was the real me, or if she was. it really creaped me out to think that i wasnt real.
I used to believe I had magic powers because when I was about 5 or 6 when driving back from from the airport with my Dad he said 'Oh no we're running out of petrol - Alice try your magic we need a petrol station right away'
So I said 'Abaracadabra please make a petrol station appear for Daddy'
Almost immediately we turned a bend on the motorway and a petrol station came into view and Dad exclaimed 'Well done Alice your magic is brilliant - were saved.'
It was years before I worked out that Dad knew where all the petrol stations were, but in the meantime I felt really special and useful to my family especialy when we were 'running out of petrol'.
I pointed out a smoke trail to my older brother and asked him what it was. He told me it was an airplane. From then on, I refused to sit in the back of a plane, thinking that the plane would slowly evaporate into the air working from the back forward. I thought my best bet to arrive in one piece was to sit in the front. I still do!
