ten random beliefs
As a kid, I used to believe that our parents could hear our thoughts. I was careful not to think of something they wouldn't like me thinking
When I was a kid I hated to go to bed. I was the youngest, and I was convinced that my family would wait for me to go to bed and then they would have a party without me.
when I was little i used to pick out shapes in by 'bobbly' window while I was on the toilet. one day i picked out little red riding hood. i told my mum and she helped me trace it saying 'it will come alive tonight'. I believed her and next morning i saw a girl in a red raincoat about my age. I hugged her and dragged her off to play. she is now my wife.
When I was a kid I watched this vacuum commercial where there was a tornado, and this lady got her vacuum cleaner and sucked up the tornado. So when I was little I used to ask my parents "Why don't they just suck the tornado up with a vacuum cleaner?"
You know how some medicines and the like have the label saying "keep out of reach of children"? Well I thought it meant if a kid was in possession of it they would go to jail. I remember one time when I had Chicken Pox I had some lotion i could put on and my mom let me hold onto it but because it has the "keep out of reach of children" on it I was scared the police might somehow find out I had it and throw me in jail!
my grandpa was slightly overweight. I asked why he was so round. His reply was that he was preganant. I then waited 5 years for his baby and talkign to it whenever I saw him. It seemed logical since I knew about male seahorses.
Our bathtub drain didn't have the little metal strainer in it, it was just a hole. It made this horrible sound when draining, it got worse as the water level dropped.
When I was 4 or 5, my older brother came into the bathroom just as I pulled the plug. He told me that sharks could come up into the tub since we didn't have the strainer in there. I remember telling him he was full of it, but I never pulled the plug again until I was out of the tub.
Now I tell my kids that the strainer is there to prevent shark attacks.
As a child, I believed that there was a monster under my bed but if I dropped candy on the floor on the opposite side that I got out on that he wouldn't see me as I leapt from the bed across the room! My Mom always wondered why there was candy on the floor on that side of the room!!!
When I was little I was taking a bath one day and noticed that i was getting hairer. I freaked out and called my mom into the bathroom, asking her if I was turning into a dog!! She just stared at me like i had 5 heads and said no. Luckily, I never became mans best friend.
I was told as a child that, if I opened the door of our mini van while it was driving, squirrels would get in. This caused me to slide open the door while on the highway. I thought it would be nice to have a squirrel visit.
