ten random beliefs

I didn't know how rollercoasters worked, so I thought that in order to stay upright on the track, the riders would have to bang on the sides of the cars with hammers at the right times to maintain balance. On my first trip to a theme park, I made everyone laugh by asking when we would get our hammers...I had been mentally preparing myself for the task since I found out we were going.

when i was like 7 i thought that heaven was a really big hotel where everyone had their own room, and depending on how good a person was during their life, determined how nice of a room they got. i was always afraid that god would run out of rooms and i wouldn't get one

I really did believe that you would go to jail if you removed the tag from the mattress because my father told me so! So I carefully destroyed the evidence when I accidently pulled the tag off. The name below has been changed to protect the guilty.

I grew up in Wimbledon, home of The Wombles (a kids TV show about environmentally friendly creatures called Wombles who lived on Wimbledon Common). My mum used to take me to Wimbledon Common to look for Wombles. Being smart, I "knew" we weren't going to find walking talking Wombles. I had "figured out" they were just regular animals like squirrels. I was well into my teens when I said to her "It's a shame we never found a real Womble in the park" and she cracked up and informed me there was no such thing. I was so disappointed.

When I was 4 or 5, we took a family trip to North Carolina. As we were driving back, it was getting late and my mother mentioned that we were getting close to Pennsylvania. My father then said "Uh-oh, it's getting late! I hope it's not closed!" For the longest time after that I really believed that certain states closed at night, and everyone had to leave and come back in the morning.

I wonder if parents realize that kids take everything literally!
