ten random beliefs
When I was about 6, my mother told me I could be anything when I got older. I told her I wanted to be a dinosaur or the color orange. I am 21 now with a math degree and I still destine to be "orange!"
when i was a youngester i thought that when we grew old, we'd turn into chimps or apes. the reason being was that when i was young i saw alot of old women with hairy chins
When I was about five or six, I thought the "Hazard" button on a car, if pressed while the car was in motion, would make the car do a jump ala "The Dukes Of Hazzard". I never got up the nerve to press it, though.
I used to believe that birds had special boots that protected them from the electricity when they stand on high wires
My older sister used to tell me that the foam from the ocean was caused by fish vomit, I was about 10 when I realized she was pulling my leg.
I used to hold my breath as I walked past cars waiting in traffic. I beleived the fumes would kill me instantly. It was difficuilt getting to school somedays.
when my mother said someone 'didnt drink' that this referred to everything, not just alcohol. I dont know how they survived...mabye they were some human version of a camel.
When I was very little I had 4 or 5 imaginary friends. My mom told me a few years ago she used to worry about me, because I would change my voice and pretend to have conversations with them - with me speaking for them. :)
The only one I remember clearly is Goldilocks. She loved to cut off people's heads and eat them with catsup and mustard.
When my older brother and sister would pick on me I would threaten to call my imaginary friends if they didn't treat me better. They always just laughed...
i refused to eat my mom's mashed potatoes. i cried at the dinner table until mom or dad gave up. i believed that they had been chewed up already by someone else.
I grew up on a small cattle ranch, and honestly believed that we got steaks from shearing cattle the same way the neighbors got wool from shearing their sheep. Imagine my father's surprise when I asked him at dinner "do cows shivered when you take their meat off?".
I had no idea they actually died before you could eat their beef!
