ten random beliefs
I assumed Molotov cocktails were a kind of drink and thought it was strange that people always wanted to throw them at buildings. Until I was 17 or so.
When I was 7 had my 5 year old brother convinced that my mom's perfume and makeup would keep the bugs away. I put it on him before we went outside for about a week before someone told my mom.
"the wind will change and your face will stay like that"
so when my cousin used to pull stupid faces, i used to blow on her face slowly and then quickly (like as if the wind really was changing) in the hope of seeing her face stuck in the stupid face she was pulling....
When I was a little girl I thought that if you put salt on your food it cooled it off! lol What
When I was a kid we had some pet cats, and whenever they purrred my mom would say that their refrigerators were running, so up until i was about 10 I used to think cats had little refrigerators in their chests that would open up every time you would pet them.
If we were on vacation and staying in a hotel, I thought it was illegal to eat at the restaurant in another hotel. If we weren't staying in any hotel and just decided to eat out at a hotel restaurant nearby, it was still illegal, but not as bad. on vacation it's like betraying your hotel.
When reentering the lobby of our own hotel, I would hide the kids' menu I'd kept from the other place so the receptionist wouldn't see that I was breaking the law.
My parents used to tape record me talking and singing. When I heard the girl on the tape talking back to me, I was sure there was another me in the tape recorder! Despite my parents best efforts to convince me otherwise, I have a tape of myself whispering, "I know you're in there. I'm going to press rewind and listen to you talk now."
my brother used to believe that the vases in cemeteries, the ones with the holes in, were microphones that you could speak to dead people through
I used to believe that there were two monsters in the toilet, a smart, mean one that was the boss and a dumb one that was his henchman. When you were sat on the toilet I they would be plotting how to get you once you flushed the toilet (that was the only time they could get you). I always used to open the toilet door before flushing so that I could jump out of the room before they got me. The dumb monster always used to trip up and the nasty monster would yell at him for missing me. The nasty monster was the deep noise that comes first when you flush and the hissing of the cistern filling up again was the dumb monster's whiney voice!
my mother grew up in Argentina close to what she thought to be a seedy train station, Temperly. Every sunday while reciting the "Lord's Prayer" at church she would cry, "and lead us not to Temperley Station!"
( I believe the line is "and lead us not into temptation")
