ten random beliefs
i used to belive the saying "kicked the bucket" meant that if you kicked a bucket you would die, its no surprise i fear buckets still, shame im a window cleaner.
My mom would tell my dad, "I have a sweet tooth", and he'd go out and buy her a gooey dessert. I asked my mom, "which tooth is your sweet tooth?" I thought that she had one that signaled her or something to tell her she wanted some chocolate.
I used to believe my nieghboor jose invented the language spanish and he got rich and bought cars
As a child my mother convinced a more gullible younger sister that a bumble bee would never ever ever sting you on the tip of your nose. One day my aunt Bessie saw a bee climbing up the kitchen window and full of confidence put this new law to the test. I am sure you can probably guess the rest. Mind you they had to make their own entertainment in those days.
When I was little I put a safety pin in the the screen on my window thinking that if a robber climbed up to get me he would prick his finger on the pin and let go and fall to the ground. When my mother sold the house 27 years later, the pin was still there, the ever faithful guardian of the house.
I used to believe that whenever people said "So-and-so" that they were talking about an actual person named Soandso.
I always heard "Soandso" did this and "Soandso" did that.
I wondered, who IS this person and how did everyone know him?
When i was little i always wanted to be helpful! One day i wanted to help my dad mow the lawn. Him being in a hurry told me that i could get my toes chopped off. To this day i still scared to move the lawn.
I used to believe that time flies when you're having fun. That meant that if you had a group of kids playing, time would move faster. So when I was in elementary school my friends and I would set a person to just sit there during recess and not have fun because we thought it would make recess last longer.
I used to believe that when you closed your eyes to pray, your guardian angel appeared, and when you opened your eyes, they disappeared. It explained why our church needed such a high ceiling- how else could all the guardian angels fit?
when I was little I used to think my toys were alive and got jelouse if I would sleep with one and not the others so I slept with all of them
