ten random beliefs
I assume sometime when I was a young child, I ate a banana and then requested another one. My mother, thinking that one piece of fruit was enough, told me "No, you'll get sick." For the longest time, I thought there was something special about bananas in that one was a tasty treat but two would make a person sick.
I used to believe that TV finished after Blue Peter.
In church, I used to believe that after the donations were made, the priest would go outside and hold the plate up, then a light would shine from the sky and beam it up from heaven. Then God would use the money to pay the angels for their services. I was afraid that if we didn't donate enough money, all the angels would go on strike and the Earth would spiral into chaos. I was an odd kid.
When the Sony Playstation first came out, I had only hear people talk about it and I never knew what it was. I always asumed it was a toy train. I couldn't understand why so many people wanted one!
When I was about 7 or 8 years old, my dad once told me that the 'Emergency Test' on the TV meant that the TV was going to blow up. A week after he told me that I was at my grandmothers and the "test Beep" came on tv and i ran around my grandmothers house screaming "The TV is going to blow up!"
i have a slight hearing problem and in church i made a few mistakes. instead of singing "up from the grave he arose" i would sing "up from the gravy rose." i never wuite understood it. the same with "deliver us from evil" which i believed to be "deliver us from weasels." at weddinds i thought "holy matrimony" was "holy macaroni". i thought macaroni was some secret part of a wedding ceremony we weren't allowed to see.
When I was little I was at my grandma's house when my aunt changed my girl cousin's diapers in front of me. I noticed she didn't have a penis and asked my aunt how she peed. My aunt said "it comes out when it needs to" so I thought girls had retractable penises.
I used to think that freckles were the result of not scratching an itch on your face. At the time I wanted to see how freckles I could get so I would try my hardest to not scratch my face.
My older sister used to tell me that the foam from the ocean was caused by fish vomit, I was about 10 when I realized she was pulling my leg.
A method of discipline around Christimas time from my mother convinced me that Santa's elves were always watching me from behind clouds in case i did anything naughty.
