ten random beliefs
When I was little, my grandpa told me that he got a scar on his arm by an indian shooting him...and the arrow came out of his butt!
i used to believe that there was a cottage in my stomach with rabbits in it, that watched whatever i ate fall past there window. (i did i swear!!!).
That box office numbers were not about money. If I heard, "The new Star Wars grossed over 10 million this weekend." I thought that 10 million people were grossed out when they saw it.
Because I kept getting told that Jesus loved me, I thought everybody meant real love, and that when I was old enough I was going to marry Jesus. For ages I felt so proud knowing that I was engaged to Jesus, and that when we were married I would be able to take my revenge on anyone who was mean to me!
When I was little, my brother told me that cauliflower was actually a kind of coral. Apparently if it wasn't heated up a lot it was still alive and would cut up and poison the inside of my mouth when I went to eat it. That night we had some salad with cauliflower in it and I ended up running out the door and hiding for hours in fear. For about a year after I wouldn't even touch cauliflower until one day I explained to my mom why and she corrected my belief.
When we had Computer class at primary school - someone told me that if you touched the red F1-12 keys, the computer would blow up! somehow it went round the whole school, and no-one would touch those keys! I still have a hard time today touching them!!
I didn't want to taste M&Ms at a birthday party, but my parents made me, and I found out that I liked them. I liked the red and yellow ones, but there were green and black ones too. Green and black were "boy-colors", so they were disgusting, and probably poisonous for girls.
My dad convinced me, when I was a little kid, that if you turned the volume up to full on any sound system it would explode. A belief I carried into my late teens.
When I was around 4 my sister told me the "truth" that my real parents were rabbits, and that my dad found me in the backyard whilst mowing the lawn. She said mom and dad only took me in because they felt bad about almost mowing me over. For years after I'd see a rabbit and wonder if it was a relative. Damn sister.
I thought that there'd be a man or some kind of skeleton under the bed that took his arms around the bed from underneath and would grab me. So I tried to stay away from the edges of the bed. :)
Another thing I was afraid of was skeletons climbing on the house on the outside. And when I was stairing at the window and closed my eyes for a few seconds then they would climb past the window. I just didn't want to see them. ;)
