ten random beliefs

In 5th grade everyone had to write in the yearbook what they wanted to do when they were older. I used to watch a lot of detective/prison type action movies, so in 5th grade it was my dream to grow up to forge checks for a living. However, being 10, I did not only know what this profession would be called, but I did not know how to spell it. My 5th grade yearbook now has me forever clocked as being a "forager." Apparently all the adults thought it was so funny no one bothered to inform me of my berry-picking future.

When I was very young I thought that underpants were worn only under pants. When I wore skirts I wouldn't wear anything beneath them, not having any underskirts. It took a windy day for my mother to catch on. We called them underclothes after that.

I used to believe that if I was drawing a map at school of a real place, if I got it wrong it would change the real coast line so I had to be really careful.

My mom ran a daycare in our home for most of my childhood. She had Flintstone vitamins for some of the kids, but she wouldn't let me have any. Not knowing what they were for, I asked her one day. For whatever reason, she told me they were to make you hungry so you would eat all of your meals and since I already did that, even if she gave me some (which she did), they wouldn't do anything.
I believed this well into high school.

When ever Elvis sang "In the ghetto" I always thought he said "In the kettle." For years I thought he sang a song about a bunch of people living in a tea pot.

When I was 4, my mom told me a story about the time a goat took a bite out of one of her dresses that was hanging out to dry. I took this to mean that goats loved eating clothes, and if I went near them they would surround me and eat all of the clothes I was wearing. I was terrified of petting zoos for years.

every night on chritmas eve for some reson i always have to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, don't ask me why. but when i went my presents from "Santa" were always under the tree. i thought that Santa knew exsactly when i was going to use the bathroom so had to do my house faster than anyone else's house. good thing my parents put presents underthe tree before i used the bathroom,or i would have know when i was 4.
