ten random beliefs
I grew up in Texas and when I heard someone was "sentenced to death" I thought that they'd been forced to write the same sentence over and over again until they died, since one of my teachers at school made us write sentences on the blackboard when we were bad.
i used to believe if i was in a plane, i'd be able to reach out, grab part of a cloud and eat it
I used to believe that pepper created actual heat.
so one day when I didn't want to go to school, I ate about 2 tablespoons of pure ground black pepper, and told my mom I was sick and to take my temperature.
She told me as red as my face was, my temperature was fine.
My mom used to always tell me not to stay out in the sun too long or I'd get dark, so I made the genuis asumption that if the sun made you darker the moon made you lighter. For a whole summer I would play in the sun all day then wait until my parents fell asleep and sit outside for a few hours determined to "undo" the darker tone i gained from playing all day.
When my sister was very little, before she could see over the pew in church, she thought that it was actually God speaking during the mass...
When I was a small child, I used to love to watch Godzilla movies. I thought they were like documentaries and I felt so sorry for all those people in Japan who kept getting attacked by Godzilla and the other monsters. I also worried about the day that they eventually made it over to California (where I live) and attacked us. I guess my parents should have talked to me more.
I used to believe that if you turned the thermastat temperature above 70 degrees that everything would melt.
When I was younger I asked my mom why you had to go slow past a school (school zones) and she told me it was in case a kid ran out in front of the car you would be able to stop quick enough to get out and spank them. I was VERY careful not get off the sidewalk when I was at school for a long time after that!
I believed that kittens lived under the tissue lying beneath my tongue. I don't know where I got this idea...but I was pretty sure of it.
I used to believe that if you stepped on a mushroom it would rain.
