ten random beliefs
I used to think that the football players with the higher numbers on their jerseys meant they were the better, stronger players than the ones with the lower numbers.
I never saw anyone use the numbers on a telephone, so I didn't know why it had numbers. I thought that the numbers were some sort of advanced feature that nobody ever used.
After the death of my great-grandmother (when I was about 6), my mother was trying to explain to me what happened to people after they died. Not having any specific religious views other than a belief in an afterlife of some kind, I was told "nobody really knows what happens to the soul", which for some reason satisfied me. I was more upset about what happened to the body. When I was informed that the body was put into "a casket", I must have got "casket" and "basket" mixed up, because I pictured dead people getting stuffed into something like a clothes hamper, which was always called the "laundry basket" in our house. I thought that was horrible. I didn't sort it out until several years later, when I saw a funeral in a movie.
I thought change was the store's way of saying thank you.
i used to be afraid to flush the toilet because i thought that it would suck me down and i would never see my family again then i would have to live in a giant crap place with other kids who were sucked in the toilet
I used to believe that the dinasaurs aren't really extinct, that we are all really dinosaurs, but we're just asleep and having this incredibly realistic dream that we're people.
I used to believe that when you could see your breath outside in the cold, you were making clouds. So I would breathe out a lot to make as many clouds as possible :)
my dad used to tell me when i was little that if he unscrewed my belly button my legs would fall off. i still dont let anyone mess with my belly button!! haha
I used to believe that by holding one hand over my eye and keeping my eyes open, that i could magically "see through my hand". When I introduced this trick to the rest of the class, we all felt like we had discovered something amazing that Adults had missed of years!
I remember the first time I learned there was a place in hospital called 'casualty', I assumed it must be the 'casual' area - where all the doctors wear jeans + t-shirts + just lay around doing nothing all day.
