ten random beliefs
I used to believe that north was always straight ahead. I could never face south, but I knew it was behind me!
I used to believe that the dinasaurs aren't really extinct, that we are all really dinosaurs, but we're just asleep and having this incredibly realistic dream that we're people.
In Sunday school, we sang "Lord of the Dance" and I thought it said that "he danced for the tribes of the Cherokees". I had no idea what Scribes and Pharasees were.I was singing it this way one time, and someone asked me if I was Mormon.I wasn't, and was very confused.
There was a house down the street that had a sign out front that said"psychic reader". I thought the person inside always knew when I walked by,and what I was thinking.
I used to think that when people were immersed in the baptistry at church, the floor under the water would open up and these big metal clamps would grab them and pull them below the floor. Simultaneously, a robot that looked exactly like them would pop up from under the water. Then the robot would take their place in life, but nobody except the pastor knew about this.
When I was 3 my father told me that I only have two glasses of water inside my head, and that if I waste my tears over silly things then I won't be able to cry anymore even if I am sad for real. He said one time he'd met an 8-year old boy who'd used up all his two glasses of tears and now he couldn't cry no matter what happened. To this day I am a woman who cries very rarely.
when i was little my dad told me that cows that were nearly all white were full of milk and ready for milking and cows that were nearly all black had just been milked!
When I was younger (4-7?, I'm 13 now), I used to believe that serial killers hid in your cereal box and jumped and killed you when you opened the box. So, after hearing the word 'serial killer', I refused to eat cereal for several weeks.
...that aliens could see the 'whites of my eyes' through the window in my bedroom at night, unless the light was on. So, I would squint, so that I could see where I was going, if I had to get up in the dark, I didn't want the light from the moon and the stars outside reflecting off my eyeballs and giving away my location. I still don't like it if the blinds or curtains don't completely obscure or block all lines of sight to the outside.
my mum used to label my christmas presents 'love santa' so 1 year when i was about 5 i asked her in all seriousness why her and my dad didn't buy me any presents. She swears thats the closest shes ever come to hitting me!!
