ten random beliefs
Up until I was about 9 I believed that my dad bent bananas for a living because that's what he told me! He actually worked in a fruit and veg warehouse and his company logo was a banana! Lol
the country of singapore was a giant white dormatory where everyone lived together.
i don't know where i came up with this one.
I am the youngest of 9 children and when I was 4 years old, we went to my grandparents' house for Easter Sunday, like always, where we were supposed to get our Easter baskets. Of course, the older kids knew there was no Easter Bunny, but I had no idea. When we got there, my oldest siblings took my Easter basket and hid it. When everyone went to grab their Easter baskets and mine was missing, my brother pulled me aside and explained that the Easter Bunny was a hoax--the "bunny" was actually an Easter Turtle who delivered baskets based on the age of the recipient and, being a turtle, he was too slow to deliver mine. I cried until my parents made my siblings return my basket, but they insisted all year that the Easter Bunny was a turtle. About three weeks before Easter the next year, I started mailing letters to the Easter Turtle reminding him to please send my basket with all my brothers' and sisters'. The mail man must have thought I was crazy.
when i was about 7, my family moved. All i knew was that we were living in one house one day and another the next.
As a result, for a long time i thought that the way people moved was to put some stuff in the trunk of their car and drive around until they found a house they liked; as in 'i want this one' and its yours
I was absolutely _crushed_ when I learned that there were numbers greater than ten. I had believed for... well, for months, I suppose (:-) that 10 was the biggest. When my mom broke the news, I cried for the rest of the day.
being australian, i could never work out why in all the cartoons and movies the ducks would fly south for the winter. it would only get colder.
I used to think the Pulitzer Prize was the "pull it, surprise!" and I always wondered what happened that it was so surprising when you pulled this thing, and why people wanted it.
When I was younger my parents told me there was a type of cheese that cut your tongue when you ate it. It took me years before I realized they were talking about "sharp" cheddar!
When they said tornados I thought they were actually giant tomatos. Everytime someone would talk about a tornado coming I'd envision a gianto tomato looming in the sky. Then when they said that a barn was demolished or hit by a tornado I'd think that the tomato came down and crushed the barn. I always wondered why there was no tomato seeds/bits in the wreckage.
My mom always thought I was fat (I wasn't I was normal.) When I was 3 she told me if I eat more then 3 meals a day I would explode
