ten random beliefs
I used to believe a lot of things about church. One thing I used to think was that God literally LIVED in my church, but was invisible when anyone walked in for mass. When no one was in the church, he would eat communion at the altar, read the hymnals, take baths in the baptismal font, and basically live in the church like one would live in a house.
I also used this belief to think that the reason that so many bad things happened in the world because God would sleep on the pews, which are so uncomfortable that anyone who sleeps on them would be cranky in the morning!
When I was a kid I always thought that at night if the toilet lid wasn't shut burglars would sneak in to the house through the toilet!
When i was little my mom used to travel alot so i used to think that the airplane would pick her up and drop her off infront of our house
When I was around 2 to 3 years old, I tried to pull off one of my Barbie's heads. My grandma told me that if I did that, I would let lose all the bugs that lived inside the doll.
Needless to say, I never tried that to do that again..
When driving through Maryland, my Dad and I would see a lot of cows. I was so upset one day because I thought they would all be turned into hamburgers. My Dad told me they only use completely black cows for hamburgers (apparently there is no such thing!). When I saw a black cow, and was upset, he told me he saw some white on it, so it was safe. I believed that one until I was 14!
When I was a young girl, I was curious why/how my mother had so many freckles. She told me when she was little she swallowed a jar full of pennies, and that's why she has so many freckles. I believed it for years, and freaked out when my own freckles began appearing.
I thought the first line of the national Anthem (Australian) was:
"Australian's all eat ostriches,
For we are young and free"
When my younger sister was just beginning to read, she would try to read all the signs she came across. In one of our favorite stores were dressing rooms bearing the sign "no more than 2 garments in dressing room at one time". She thought it read "no more than 2 grandmas in dressing room at one time" and was very concerned about what would happen to the 3rd grandma.
I used to think the alphabet went, "A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, Watermelon, P etc." I always got bored in the middle of the song but I knew it had four syllables so naturally watermelon was the only thing that made sense!
when i was little i used to believe that a tornado was the samw as a tomatoes were the same thing. when my dad told me that a tornado was coming to knock our house down, i imagined a giant tomato punching down our house. i had nightmares about it until my dad finally told me the truth, when i was 9.
