ten random beliefs

As a kid you see talking plants and trees and animals on cartoons. In Kindergarten I needed to put shiny sparkles on my art paper covered in glue and a teacher pointed me towards a table. I saw a plant on the table and put my picture under the leaves and said "Okay plant, Sparkle!" She was pointing to the dish of sparkles next to the plant. Soon after I also found out that bark on a tree was not a captured dog bark but simply the outside shell. I was becoming really depressed at the fact that plants and trees really don't interact with is very much.

When I was about 4 or 5, I asked my mom what happened to the bath water once it went down the drain. She told me it went to a plant. She meant a water refinery plant, but for a while after that, I thought that somewhere out there was a plant so big it needed everyone's bath water to grow. :P
