ten random beliefs
When we would go to the beach we used to play in the waves. my brother told me they were whales. and i got so freaked out every time a wave came, i jumped as high as i could, not wanting to hurt the whales. boy , it was hard to keep up sometimes.
As child when ever I did something I wasn't necesarily supposed to do, all i heard my parents say about it was "it's a phase...phase this and phase that...etc."
One day I over heard my parents and my aunt talking about one of their cousins, and how he was gay. So I asked "What's gay?" and they said "Oh nothing son, it's just a phase he's going through" after I found out what "gay" was I thought "Oh shit I have to go through a GAY phase too?!?!" Needless to say that up until I was 11 I used to believe that being gay was a phase we HAD to go through and I was NOT looking forward to that phase.
I believed that underneath my bathtub was a huge cavernous world of water inhabited by small gnomes in row boats.
I used to believe that the number of people in your family dictate how many fingers you had. Since there were five of us, I rationalized that's why I had five fingers.
once, when very young, i walked in on my dad peeing. for a few years later, I insisted that he had been peeing out of his thumb!
When I was little my father would tell my sister and me that if a boy kisses you your nose would fall off. I learned he was lying when a oy kissed me on the chhek
I used to believe that the big white ovals on killer whale faces were their eyes, until a year ago. I'm 20 now, and I've been to Sea World twice.
When you caught the white fuzzy things that fly through the air, that was part of Santa Claus' beard and it meant you were being good.
When I was about 5 I asked my parents why vegetables were good for you, and they said 'they make you grow big and strong.' I got confused and thought they meant you got older, and i really wanted to be older than my sister! (shes 2 years older than me) after about a year of practicing this, our birthdays came! (my birthday is Jan 8, my sister's is Jan 10) And my birthday came first! I was so happy and convinced I was now bigger and older than her - and very annoyed when everybody said I wasn't!
When I was little, my dad told me I had freckles on my face from throwing rocks in the toilet. For the longest time I would try to rub the freckles off my face.
