ten random beliefs
When I was little, my mom used to say people with with curly hair are smart. I was born with curly hair along with my dad (which made me thought I was blessed to be born smart), but other than that everyone in my family has straight hair. I was told that that when people get smarter, their hair curls and when people get dumber, their hair goes straight or lose curls. Then it was time for me to get my first haircut, a buzzcut and I never wanted to because I was afraid I will lose my curls and lose my memory but then my hair grew back along with the curls. Now I realize that hair has nothing to do with how smart or dumb you are...wow..
When I was young, I believed that clouds were made of concrete, and attached to the sky by strings- if God was angry at you, he would cut the strings, and a cloud would fall on you, crushing you to death. I tried to avoid getting under clouds, and always felt a little safer on sunny days.
I used to confuse the time of 'Lent' with the verb 'lend'. I thought that when someone gave up something for lent they would give it all to someone. I told myself that one day i would give up cough medcine and punish the greedy person who took everyone's sweets and cakes.
i used to believe that the world couldn't have possibly started before i was born.
I thought teachers secretly lived at school over the summer. They lived in big pickle jars full of some kind of fluid or maybe plugged into electric outlets to recharge in the small bathroom in the back of the classrooms. Why else would they stack all those boxes of Kleen-ex up in the windows?
I used to laugh about it until my son entered the first grade. I was pretty shocked to discover he had the same teacher I had... and, I swear to God, she hadn't aged a day!
You know that saying long time no see. Well, I used to believe that it meant that some one has seen that other person so long ago, that the sea dried out - as in no sea.
when i was little i used to believe that everytime you listened to the radio it was actually playing live. In a place at a specific time. and i thought that all the artists were best friends due to the fact that the next song came quickly. I was completely crushed because i found out that it wasnt true when i was listening to ''Try Again'' by Aaliyah. . .and before that it said that it was a dedication to Aaliyah
I have a distinct memory of sitting on the school bus coming home from kindergarten one day and being absolutely convinced I was going to die. Why? Because the bus driver was drinking from a can of Coke and I knew from PSAs on television that drinking and driving killed people.
When I was younger, I thought that the pieces of seaweed that washed up on the beach were shark guts. For years, I ran away whenever I saw them, and I wouldn't got in the water.
When I was a kid we had some pet cats, and whenever they purrred my mom would say that their refrigerators were running, so up until i was about 10 I used to think cats had little refrigerators in their chests that would open up every time you would pet them.
