ten random beliefs
When I was younger I used to belive that bats were imaginary.
This was because the only place I had ever seen them was in Scooby Doo cartoons!
I was actually mid-teens before I realised that they were real.
The only way I found out was by watching a wildlife documentry on TV, I was very disappointed when I saw them because I had always imagined them to be the size of a seagull!!
If i farted in the tub the bubbles would be different shapes.
my dad can balance things on his nose, like broomsticks and chairs. when i was little i used to be so fascinated by it. when i was about five, he jokingly told me that he learnt the skill as a clown in the circus.
i believed him until i was 15!
'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 younger, my mum told me that because it was a leap year, I would miss my birthday and would have to stay the same age for another year. Even though my birthday is in September and nothing to do with leap years, I believed her and cried for ages.
One time when I was a kid I asked what a cannibal was and my mom said its someone who eats other people. For some reason it didn't occor to me that they could cut up and cook someone so I imagined they just opened their mouth really wide and swallowed the other person whole!
i used to think that people would make up songs in the shower, then someone else would come in random bathrooms and record it, then played it on the radio. for a long time i would make up songs and sing them as loud as i could hoping that someone would recerd mine, and play it on the radio station.

Our youngest daughter used to think that that all movies and TV shows started out in color and then gradually faded into black and white by the time they were old.
for quite few years I believed my Dad had swapped feet with my Grandad. An uncle pursuaded me that this was true when I was about 3 years old, after I'd seen my Grandad wearing my dad's shoes.
My mom was sick a lot and had to stay in the hospital. I beleived that Ohura from Star Trek would visit us and have pity on us and decide to move in and be our mom...
