ten random beliefs
My brother was terrorised by an imaginary charecter called anorak doo-dah
When I was little I saw this commercial where it was just the camera on a hospital ceiling for 30 seconds. It then says "Think that was boring? Try it for a lifetime. Don't snort". Meaning cocaine, I guess, but snorting my runny snot back up was a bad habit my mom had tried to cure me of constantly. After that commercial I was afraid it would kill my brain and I always kept a box of tissues by me so I could blow my nose instead.
When I was little, I thought that Water Towers were full of dirty laundry. Why? I dont know.
I had a long pink dress i used to wear all the time, I convinced my sister that this dress had stairs in it to help you find your way when you pulled it over your head because it was so long. When the dress was passed down to her I managed to make her believe that she just wasn't looking in the right place.
One time when I was little I was walking with my mum in nearby woods, when we came to the edge of a very steep hill. Of course, I set of with glee to run down it and my mum said "Be careful! Don't run too fast or you won't be able to stop" (presumably meaning I was go careering into a tree or something). Unfortunately though, I thought that when people ran, if they reached a certain 'key' speed, then they would be doomed to run everywhere for the rest of their lives.
Any properties with a sign outside proclaiming "To-Let" where available to the passing public who needed to use the toilet.
When I was 7, our family was riding home from a trip. It was nighttime I was awake keeping my dad company and I noticed that the car lights would go dim and bright. I asked my dad how that happened. He told me that there was a button on the bottom of his left foot that he pressed down on the floorboard when he wanted to change the lights. The next night when mom and dad were watching TV in bed, I asked my dad to let me see his foot so I could find that button and had wondered when that button would grow on my left foot.
I used to believe that nuns were real life witches. I remember being on an elevator with my mother and a nun, and hiding behind my mother so the nun wouldn't get me.
I believed till I was 8 that eggs grew on plants. It didn't help that dad used to hang his cleaned out eggshells on a plant in the garden.
I remember keeping an egg (from the carton) in my bed for like a week because I thought it would hatch if I kept it warm. Not sure how I didn't break it.
