ten random beliefs
I always heard the phrase "honor roll" as "on a roll". It made sense to me that if a person had mostly B's they would get a certificate saying "B On a Roll" like, "hey you're getting a lot of b's you're on a roll".
When my neighbor got a D on his report card, I asked him if there was a D "On a roll" and he punched me. Lessons learned the hard way.
I used to believe that countries really had their names written across them and that when you reached a border there would be a red dotted line on the ground.
i thought the traffic lights were just christmas lights all year long to make the roads look pretty. i could never figure out why my parents always stopped at them. so, in regards to that, i always through a fit and told my mom to start driving.
For some reason, when I was very little, I thought that TV shows "stayed inside the TV" until it was turned on. When we watched TV, the shows were "leaking out." When I started going to school, I would come home in the afternoon, try to watch "Sesame Street" and find that it wasn't on. I then asked Mom not to watch TV while I was at school, as it "wasted" "Sesame Street."
i used to believe that the automatic doors had people inside them tht would operate them so whenever the y opened i would say thank you and kiss the doors cuz i felt sorry for the people that had to work in them forever
For whatever reason, when I was young, it was usual for us at my house to get a Christmas tree a little too tall to fit in the living room. So my father would cut off a bit of the top to make it fit. For years, I thought that was what was meant by "trimming" the Christmas tree.
I used to believe that clowns and teachers weren't really people. I didn't think they had homes. I didn't think they ate dinner. I didn't think they went to the bathroom.
When I was little, I used to think there were people that lurked in the bushes to see what others were watching on TV and that that's where ratings came from.
When my mom would say that my eyes were bigger than my stomach I thought she meant it literally.
When I was little, I always felt bad when I didn't hear someone say something and made them repeat it because I thought everyone only had so much breath in them and that I was killing them by making them say something twice.
