ten random beliefs
When I was very young I thought that "B.C." stood for "Before Cloth." Prior to that time, I imagined everybody was running around wearing animal skins because they didn't know how to weave textiles yet.
I used to believe only black & white spotted cows can make milk; therefore, they are all female cows. The sad part is I didn't realize it's not true til I was in college!!
I used to believe that The Horse was The Cow's husband, and that it produced chocolate milk.
I used to think that there was only 1980 and 1981. I thought that we just alternated between the two, I got really confused when we got to 1983 because no-one had ever explained to me how years worked...
I believed that when we were in the car driving that the car just sat there while the Earth rotated making the tires turn.
When I was a child, the "This is your brain on Drugs" (Where they fry the egg) commercials would play all the time during the Saturday Morning cartoons. I completly misunderstood those commercials and believed that the act of frying an egg in butter would somehow make it be "Drugs" I learned quickly how wrong I was when I yelled at my mom for "Making Drugs" for breakfast one saturday morning.
I used to believe that my life was the dream of a giant. I was terrified that he would wake up and I would die.
I used to think that the Bookmakers made books but could not understand why there were so many of them and they all seemed to have stained glass windows of horses. I was 18 before I found out it was a betting agents and that Scotland wasn't some great Literary Capital of the world.
'God is always watching' my mother would tell me endlessly as a child. I always wondered how many televisions god would watch simultaneously and did he ever get bored simply watching me washing my teeth, so I would dance around to entertain him so he wouldn't get bored.
when i was a kid, i believed the news far too literally. when the news reporter said "a man is helping police with their enquiries" i thought a nice bloke had gone to the police station on his day off, with notepad and pen, and said offered to carryout interviews.
