ten random beliefs
when 1 was 5 i went on my first holiday abroad to spain and i thought soon as i got there i could instantly talk spanish and will come back unable to speak english
I had a similar experience as another poster here. I was watching Sesame Street back when nobody but Big Bird (and us kids) believed in Mr. Snuffalupagus. Well, he was walking right behind Gordon once and I shouted out "he's right behind you!!!". Gordon turned to the camera (me) and replied, "did you say 'he's right behind me?''" From that day forward I never sat in front of the TV in my underwear again.
I used to believe that the Oscars were a pagan ritual aired on TV to try and get new members. Therefore, I was always afraid of the actors I saw recieving awards, because I thought they had become one of them and were now trying to get me to become a pagan as well by using subliminal messages whenever I watched a movie with them in it.
When I was 3 or 4, I learned in Sunday School that God is the Father. I took this literally and belived that God was my father, being too young to understand the theological implications of such a thing. Once I got upset with my "earth Dad" and told him that he wasn't my real Daddy. I'd imagine that it sparked an interesting conversation between my parents until they figured out I was just confused rather than alerting him to Mom's infidelity with another man.
I used to believe that every time I saw a stretched limo it was either 1. Madonna (or) 2. Michael Jackson. Apparently those were the only celebrities in my world.
As a 7 or 8 year old, I knew that water was a good conductor of electricity. I also knew that lightening was a deadly electrical source. Therefore, in my mind (was it told to me?), it was a big no-no to go pee in the toilet during an electrical storm because in some way the lightening could make its way up through the toilet through the water and then by extention . . . . I think you get the idea. During many a storm I found myself holding on until after the storm was over until I thought it was safe to go to the bathroom!
I used to believe that all sharks were machines. The reason for this is because I had misunderstood my father when he said that the sharks (on Jaws) were machines and I thought that he were saying that ALL sharks in real life are machines as well! So, basically, I thought that sharks were some form of living machines swimming round the oceans lol!
I used to believe that one of my teachers morphed into my cat and spied on me at home. I was always scared to do anything while the cat was watching!
I use to believe I had magic powers to see the clouds move. When I found out that everyone could, I stopped wanting to be a weather woman.
My niece had a funny understanding of evolution thanks to a tadpole. She witnessed a tadpole become a frog. So she was under the impression that women gave birth to apes that turned into humans as they grew older.
