ten random beliefs
when I was six years old I was under the impression that Santa Claus' sleigh was on my room. I looked out the window every so often. I looked on last time and was sooo convienced that it was his sleigh, but it was the our Gutter that's all! I was totally mistaken and sad...
I used to think that The Great Wall of China was made out of porcelain.
I used to swear that everyone saw colors differently. Such as what I saw as red someone else actually saw blue but called it red because that's how they learned it. I used to ask everyone to describe the colors to me to see if I was right. I was convinced that I was a genius because I had figured that all out by myself.
i used to believe that broccoli were actually home to a whole civilization of teeny little people who lived in a whole complicated system of treehouses and walkways. i ate the broccoli, but not happily.
I used to think that the toilets went directly to the lakes and streams. I also loved to fish, so one day when my mom would not take me I decided that I would just use the toilet. An hour latter and a full reel of line later my mom heard the contant flushing and found me "Toilet fishing"
My father once saw me put a quarter in my mouth, and told me that "I should never do that, because someone might have put it in their ass." For years, when I would see someone limping, or just walking funny, I thought I knew why.
I thought that Penelope was pronounced Pen-el-ope. I also thought Bob was short for Bobert. (Because Rob was short for Robert! Very logical, huh?)
I thought the reason no one liked Lady Macbeth because she was cruel and said bad words to her dog (Out, out, damned Spot.)
I wanted to dress up as a leopard for Halloween and my mom had made me a costume that zipped up the back. As my father was helping me to get dressed he told me a story about my brother dressing up like a dog for Halloween which I didn't understand because I was an only child. Then he pointed to our border collie Truman and told me that Truman used to be my brother but they couldn't find the zipper at the end of the night so he had become our dog. I was never so glad to get out of a costume in my entire life.
when I was little, I thought that each foreign language was just a 'code', + you could learn it by finding out which letters represented which. The only foreign word I knew was 'oui', so I had a starting point for learning French:
I was dying to find something writen in French so I could crack more of the code...
