ten random beliefs
I used to believe that when the radio dimmed a little when driving throught a tinnel, it was so blind people who were driving didnt crash into the sides.
i think i might have been dropped as a child...
When I was young (1980s), and violent or sexual programming was advertised on television with the disclaimer, "Parental Discretion Advised," I thought the TV announcer was actually saying "Friendly Discussion Advised."
It made sense to me because I thought the extreme nature of these programs would make people feel scared and leave them with a need to reassure each other.
when i was little i used to believe in this thing called the sock monster. whenever i would wear socks to bed they wouldnt be on my feet in the morning or even in the sheets so i thought there was a monster under my bed who knew i was wearing socks that night and would crawl under my covers and steal my socks. i still dont like sleeping with socks on
I believed that I could walk to, and touch, the setting sun, if only I was allowed to cross the big road that passed between me and the West.
I used to be terrified of colonial men in powdered wigs. I was afraid they'd make my mom and I wash dishes at their dinner parties. This was the most sinister thing I could conceive of, at the time.
In my early years i thought that most of the milk came from cows, but a small amount of milk was produced by the garbagetruck. I always asked my parents if the milk i was drinking were real cow-milk.
I used to believe that people who spoke in different languages also laughed in different languages, I'm not really sure why.
Once when I was little I went to a farm on a school field trip. A lady showed us the machine used to milk cows. She put it on my thumb so I could feel the suction. After that I believed my thumb had milk in it.
My cousin told me that if you look into my grandma's cat's eyes, you can see the future.
I believed it but was afraid of getting scratched in the face by doing so, so I never tried it.
My friend Becca believed that if you held your breath for long enough, the pores on your forehead opened up to allow you to breathe - she nearly passed out!
