ten random beliefs
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.
My grandparents told us if you sprinkled salt on a bird's tail, it would follow you home. Of course this was family lore intended to get us out of the house.
There is a really cute picture of my cousin and I, both about 3, out in the tall grass of the 'back 40' holding cut-glass salt shakers, intently looking for birds.
I use to believe that all the homes were taken by the road side because every where we move it was a house down a long path.
My dad told me that the world was in black and white. Then they invented crayons, and the world was never the same.
I use to believe that a stripmall was a place where people could shop naked
Not so much a belief, but an assumption. We used to drive the same route to go camping and along one road was a farm with a signpost out front. The top one said RABBITS FOR SALE and the one below it said FRESH EGGS. I always assumed the eggs were rabbit eggs. I was about 14 before it dawned on me that the eggs were chicken eggs.
My mother told me if I ate too much butter I'd get worms. I didn't eat too much butter...
In the song "Sowing The Seeds Of Love" by Tears for Fears there is a line "if you're a worried man, shout about it. For a long time I thought it was "If you're a wanted man, shout about it" and thought it was weird because if you were a wanted man I assume you wouldn't want people to know..
I used to believe that feelings were eyebrows. When someone said their feelings were hurt, I thought it meant that their eyebrows hurt.
I used to think that since everyone referred to me as 'you', my name was 'you', and I would always say "Pick you up, please!"
