ten random beliefs
When me an my little brother were little, we took a family vacation road trip to Disney World. On the way there, my little brother would ask me what the billboards said because he wasn't old enough to read yet and I was. I told him some of the roadside billboards near Disney World said, "Tommy is a a dummy." and he believed me.
i believed that you can send anything thru a fax and used to get puzzled why people only send paper and not other cool stuff.
When I was about 5 yrs. old my friend, Peggy, told me that if you stared at the sun long enough, you would go blonde. We tried it, but our eyes couldn't handle it, so we gave up. This was way back in the days when the phrase "blondes have more fun" was popular. I didn't make the connection that someone must have told Peggy she would go BLIND staring at the sun until well into my thirties. I still laugh when I think of it.
I believed that when you were one, your birthday was on the 1st of whatever month, and when you were two it was on the 2nd and so on and so forth until you dies, when your birthday was on the last day of the month. I thought that I would die when I was 28 because my birthday is in February. My mom had to explain to me that my birthday would always be on the same day (and she added that I'd only die when I drove her crazy and she ate me. I was scared of her after that).
Thanks to my grandmother, I used to believe that my belly button was where Jesus blew me up with a straw.
I used to believe that whenever I flushed a poo, it would go down this series of pipes till most of the water ran off, at which point it would plop onto the round table of a little meeting room of ''poo'' monsters - little guys made of poo, who ate our poo to survive. :) I wasn't afraid of them, I thought they were doing us an (albeit disgusting) service, kinda like the garbage men.
When I went to my friends house they would have blue water in the toilet. I used to believe that it was the same thing as the pink goo from ghost busters!
I thought that my parents didn't have names at all. I believed that we called them mom and dad because they didn't have real names to actually called them. I was so shocked when my mom was on the phone and said "Hi, my name is Theresa". I went up to her, tapped her on the shoulder and said "YOU have a name?!"
I used to believe that there was a little man living in my stomach that was constantly trying to crawl up my throat and out through my mouth. To keep him from escaping, I had to be sure to eat and drink every day.
When I was about 4 my grandmother told me that eating carrots helped me to see in the dark. I somehow misheard this as 'carrots make your eyes glow in the dark.' Needless to say, I immediately gobbled my veggies down and was very dissapointed when my eyes failed to light up the room that night.
