ten random beliefs
When I was a girl, I belived that my dolls were alive, but they never moved during the day. Instead, they would wait for night and after it was dark, they would go wandering around the house until dawn when they would return to wherever they had last been set down. That's why as a child, I used to set my stuffed animals on the floor and make sure they were dressed for the weather. I belived that if I didn't, they would be angry and would hurt me while I slept.
I used to believe that my school teachers lived inside the school and my school bus driver lived on the bus.
When i heard the word "tornado" i thought that people were saying "tomatoe" and when i saw houses flattened by "tomatoes" i thought that big pieces of tomatoes dropped down on peoples houses.

When my sister and I were young we used to believe that the power station near our house was a playground. It honestly looked like a giant sized jungle gym to our young eyes. We were forever begging our mom to take us, luckily she never did.
My girlfriend (who's 20 yrs old) didn't realise until the other year that trains have wheels. She'd assumed they were somehow hovering.
A friend of mine used to sing 'Oh my god! There's a snowman' instead of 'All we've got is this moment' to INXS's - Need You Tonight.
He was convinced that these were the correct lyrics and tried to justify this to me by saying 'Well, they come from Australia, so they've never seen snow before'.
That the frying vats in the fish and chip shop went all the way down dep into the seaq and the fish would be trapped in them and be fried for our dinner and that the little black marks still left in the potato chips were the nibbles left there by the fish beforfe they were caught
