ten random beliefs
I used to believe that the digestive sytem was only for people who ate digestives, and being as i hated them, i either didnt have a digestive system, or didn't use it.
I used to believe that if robbers came into the house they wouldn't hurt me if they thought I was asleep. So I tried to look asleep even when I wasn't.
When I was younger I used think when a jet in the sky had the white fuely smoke behind it it was because it dragged a cloud with it when it went through one.
When i was younger my older sister and I slept in bunkbeds.(I slept on the top bunk)
And so every night, I would climb up the ladder to my bunk. And each time i got to the third highest rung, I would try close my eyes and scramble up as fast as i could. For fear that when my sister turned into a werewolf, she would eat my ankles.
When I was little I used to wonder how people got of streets that had 'No exit.' Then I reasoned that it meant that there was no exit for cars - I believed that you could drive your car in but you couldn't drive your car out, so you had to walk out....I had images of a street lined with cars that never moved.
I had a long pink dress i used to wear all the time, I convinced my sister that this dress had stairs in it to help you find your way when you pulled it over your head because it was so long. When the dress was passed down to her I managed to make her believe that she just wasn't looking in the right place.
My best friend and I were convinced that a new male teacher was a spy, and spent ages trying to persuade the other kids this was so. One of his main complaints was that there never seemed to be any paperclips when they were needed, so we came to the conclusion that he was secretly stealing them and selling them, and that his complaints were just a cover. Thankfully, I was only 7 at the time and had an highly active imagination, so I have an excuse! But if you're reading this, Mr Mooney, I'm on to you...
My brother told me that if you ate a slug you'd be able to fly. Naturally curiosity overcame me, and I only discovered he was lying after trying to eat one.
When I turned 10 my parents gave me their old bed and got a new one. The bed was a double so there was room for 2 people. 1 night i went to bed and i woke up with someone that i didnt know beside me (a younger cousin i'd never seen) and i was terrified. I began to believe that if i went to bed with an empty space beside me id wake up with a dead person next to me(I dont know how i got that idea). So i used to sleep on 1 side of the bed and cover the other side with pillows so there was no chance id wake up next to anyone.
My dad told me that if you eat the seeds of a strawberry as a child, you wouldn't like strawberries when you grew up. I always felt sad whenever I ate strawberries.
