ten random beliefs
I was firmly convinced I could fly - I even have strong memories of flying or floating down the stairs. I think I probably could and it was only when I was told I couldn't that I stopped being able to.
when i was a kid i used to think i was a horse called joey, i even had an imaginary horse girlfriend called lily. this abruptly stopped when i galloped into a wall and broke my wrist.
I used to believe that Newton's 3rd Law (for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction) could work both ways....the example we were given was that "if you push on a wall, the wall pushes back"....I used to walk down the hallways worriedly thinking "what if the wall pushes FIRST!!??"
I thought that the map of England used on the weather forecast was the plot of land our house was built on. It never occured to me that it couldn't possibly be freezing and snowing out front and 5 degrees warmer and sunny out the back at the same time!
In 1st grade, we were asked to say what we would do if we were President (if we could make any law). I said, aloud to the class, that I would make it acceptable for women to go around topless. It is alright for men to do so, and I thought it was sexist for women to not be allowed.
No one else thought so.
When I was little I used to think that when I flossed or brushed my teeth, if there were any specks of food on the brush or floss, that it was the cavity creatures from the toothpaste commercials.
I use to believe that it was Henry the Ape and not Henry the 8th
I used to believe that when the sun sets, it means it ran out of batteries, and it recharges during the night.
I also believed the sun ran on batteries.
When I was little, I would bike past the City Motor Company on my way to the library. However, I thought it was the City MURDER Company. I was scared to go past it for years.
When I was little, I overheard my grandfather persuade my cousin to eat spinach by promising him it would put hair on his chest. Being a five year old girl, I was horrified by this notion. I refused to touch the stuff until I was nearly thirty.
