ten random beliefs
When I was about seven I believed that airplanes dropped passengers off on the roof of their individual destinations. My mom talked for months about taking a plane to visit my grandpa, and I thought that the plane would just land on top of his house and let us off there. I was totally confused when we arrived at the airport in Buffalo!
As a 7 or 8 year old, I knew that water was a good conductor of electricity. I also knew that lightening was a deadly electrical source. Therefore, in my mind (was it told to me?), it was a big no-no to go pee in the toilet during an electrical storm because in some way the lightening could make its way up through the toilet through the water and then by extention . . . . I think you get the idea. During many a storm I found myself holding on until after the storm was over until I thought it was safe to go to the bathroom!
During a very long car ride to the ocean, I came to the conclusion that the moon was actually a reflection of Earth, and if I looked hard enough, I really could see my family's car moving on the surface.
When I was 3 or so my parents, without getting into lengthy explanations of Vitamin A, told me carrots would help me see in the dark. That night, well after bedtime, I snuck into the kitchen and stole a carrot from the fridge. My parents caught me in my dark bedroom trying to use it as a flashlight.
I used to believe that the "Pledge" of Allegiance had something to do with our "Pledge" cleaner.
I used to believe that when we would fly somewhere there was a separate plane for our luggage. A smaller plane that would fly behind the people plane. Then, it explained why the luggage would take soooo long and why it would get lost sometimes.
I used to tell everyone that I was allergic to concrete - because when I fell on it, it hurt. I have since learned that it's an allergy that has afflicted 100% of the population
Someone told me that if I turned my head real fast I could bite my own ear, so I almost ended up with whiplash and still didn't bite it. And my grandma told me that if I kissed my own elbow I would be able to fly. Feh.
this belief is not mine but my sisters (she is 5) when she discovered that our mom was cooking lasagna,she said "yuck, im not eating cat food!" when asked why she reffered to a Garfield movie she had watched !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I used to sleep in my bed all rolled up in a ball. My mom would ask me why and i would tell her that it was beacuse I was afraid that someone would break into our house and upon seeing my incredibly comfortable bed, steal the bottom half of it. I slept balled up to make sure that my legs wouldnt get cut off when he cut my bed in two. Yes, this actually terrified me.
