ten random beliefs

I thought that the map of England used on the weather forecast was the plot of land our house was built on. It never occured to me that it couldn't possibly be freezing and snowing out front and 5 degrees warmer and sunny out the back at the same time!

I was born and raised in NY. For the longest time, I used to think that every single person in the world was born in NY and then decided to either stay or move away.

I used to and sometimes still think, that there was people inside my dogs. That since the begining of time people hid themselves in dog outfits, I was of-course never afraid to change in front of them because all my dogs were girls, then I got a boy dog. he ran away. This theory was destroyed when my dog had puppies.

Remember Bird brain and Mousy mouth? Well I'm doggy ditz. (from animals : cats & dogs)

I used to believe that if you left any of your toys laying on the ground at night then a big bird-like monster would come and gobble them all up. It really hit me when one of my Barbie shoes went missing one night.

I used to believe that if you touched the breaker box in your house, you would disintegrate into a big pile of ashes. My parents had told me never to touch it & that was what would happen. When I was 24, my husband's grandpa came over and was for whatever reason was about to open our breaker box. I started freaking out & told him not to touch it. He looked at me like I was crazy & asked why. I relayed to him what my parents had told me when I was young and he and my husband started laughing at me. (The breaker box had been in my room when I was a kid and since I had never had any dealings with one when I was older, still didn't know any different.)

I used to believe that all ice cream started out as vanilla...and then flavors were added in to make it chocolate or strawberry, etc. I thought the vanilla had no flavor at all. I could never understand why some people would actually ask for vanilla ice cream!

When I was a kid and I saw something like "V6" or "V8" on the back of the car, I thought it was the battery voltage. I always wondered why the huge car battery only puts out 6 or 8 volts...I mean, a little 9V battery is more powerful than that, right? I was so proud that my R/C car had a 12-volt battery. It was obviously way more powerful than any of the real cars I'd ever seen!

When I was a kid I used to always pee in the swimming pool and saw absolutely nothing wrong with this. I never understood why other people would actually get out of the pool and walk all the way to the toilet when it was so much easier to just pee in the pool. I thought I was much cleverer than them and was saving time.

When I was little an aunt told me I was so cute I should do tv commecials but I said no because I didn't want to be forced to go to the tv station to do the same 30 seconds of acting over and over and over again... (I thought tv commercials were live)
