ten random beliefs
'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 little I slept with about 27 stuffed animals in my bed at one time to protect me from the evil monsters under my bed. (I am not joking about the 27 stuffed animals, they were all ranging in size) and when I fell asleep the stuffed animals would "wake up" and have a dance party in my room. when a monster came out from under my closet they would stop dancing and start fighting the monster until it went away. My stuffed animals were Karate ninjas.
When I was little, I heard some one say that you should "never drink and drive." A few days later, I saw my mom drinking a diet soda while driving, and I threw a fit. She told me that you're allowed to drink non-alcoholic drinks while driving. I had no clue what that meant. The next day I went into school and announced that my mom drinks and drives. My mom ended up with a nice little call from my teacher.
My imaginary friend was called Swacky Boom, who was a sort of elf-like guy usually fond hovering cross-legged at ceiling level in the corner of the room.
He liked his tea stirred a special way, in ever decreasing circles, then in a cross pattern.
Dunno where Swacky is now, but I hope he is still enjoying his cups of tea.
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 about six I was in a wedding. The other flower girl said she was from Pennsylvania, which scared me because I thought she was a Vampire. I kept trying to get a good look at her teeth to see if they really were long. I tried to be polite about it all, because I knew it wasn't her fault she was born a vampire!
When I was young, once on the bus a girl asked me when my birthday was, and I told her it was in the pink panther month(February).
When I was around 7, my stepdad told me that the sausage used on pizza was really rabbit droppings. I only believed it for a couple more years, but I think it affected me subconsciously because sausage is still the only pizza topping I don't like.
When I was very young, about 4 years old, I believed that I lived in the "United Skates of America". I really loved roller skating at the time..
I was invited to a birthday party once, and I thought that I had to pay for it. I asked, and after a 'no' from my mother, I was still anxious to keep the invite as proof that I had been invited so that I could give it in on entry.
