ten random beliefs
While singing Christmas carols as a child, I was confused by "Angels We Have Heard on High." Instead of "in excelsis Deo," I thought it was "in Aunt Chelsea's stable."
I used to think "an armed person" meant a person without any arms. I grew up during the Vietnam War and so there was a lot of news about "armed camps." I imagined children with hooks standing around the campfire and playing games. (Naturally, crime reports on the news about "armed robbers" and gave me equally vivid mental pictures.
I used to believe anthing that ran on electric or batteries had a self destruct button. Even a simple bread toaster!! I was deathly afraid of pressing the button on accident. To this day every body tells me "Don't press the button to blow it up."
I used to think that vanilla was the absence of chocolate, not its own flavor.
when I was little I used to think my toys were alive and got jelouse if I would sleep with one and not the others so I slept with all of them
I used to believe that when the radio dimmed a little when driving throught a tinnel, it was so blind people who were driving didnt crash into the sides.
i think i might have been dropped as a child...
When I was little my dad told me that the girl playing noughts and crosses with the clown doll on the Test Card was me [this was 30 odd years ago in the UK] and I thought it was me [she did look a lot like me], I couldn't figure out how they'd managed to film me playing noughts and crosses with a doll that I didn't own ...
My parent's told me that if you push the button at the end of the handbrake in the car, the car will automatically flip onto it's head. When I was 14 my buddy and I were sitting in the car and he reached for the handbrake button - I hit him! He was not amused until I explained to him why I did it. Then he was VERY amused!
My mom told me that if i peed in the pool the water would turn purple and everyone would know it was me who did it. Needless to say i have never peed in the pool!!
When I was little I used to think that if one of your nose hairs came out then there now was something in the world that you cant smell anymore.
