ten random beliefs
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.
While singing the Australian Anthem in primary school, I was utterly convinced the first line (actually saying "Australian all let us rejoice") said "Australians all eat ostriches."
I found out otherwise when my teacher overheard my loud singing and pulled me aside to get me in trouble. I was very confused.
My dad made be believe that picture adverts for rufuse skips in the local paper were actually lorries that transported erect tents (upside down).
I used to believe that if yo took a picture of someone while they're talking, a speech bubble would appear in the picture.
I always thought 'virgin' was Marys star sign and could never work out why it was such a big deal
When I was younger, I thought that the evening wear category of a beauty pagent meant pajamas because that's what i wore in the evening!! I was shocked when I actually watched a pagent one night. TO my dismay, the contestant were not wearing nightgowns!
When I was little I thought that if you watched too much TV your pupils would turn into squares.. I used to weep everytime a movie was put on because I was convinced that if I watched the entire movie my eyes would become square.
I thought everything had feelings, furniture, bugs, pens, you name it. Getting ice was the worst. When I took ice out of the ice tray, I would try and leave a few cubes near each other so they wouldn't get lonely. Later I started thinking what if the ice cubes I left near each other didm't get along, so I had to debate each time whether it was better to risk an ice cube being lonely or it having to put up with unfriendly cubes.
I was about seven or eight when Jimmy Carter won the Presidency of the USA. All the media coverage leading up to the election referred to, "The run for the White House." Well the bit that confused me was - why didn't a younger fitter man win?
Before entering kindergarten, I had learned the alphabet slightly wrong. I understood it to be NOQPRS, thinking that the Q was similiar to the O with a tail and the R was similiar to the P, with the same tail. When I learned the proper way, I thought they had some national meeting to permanently change it from OQPR to OPQR and thought it was so cool that it happened in my life time.
