ten random beliefs
I believed that when we were in the car driving that the car just sat there while the Earth rotated making the tires turn.
I used to have phobia about seafood (shrimp, crabs, etc.) because I thought that they would slither up my face and crawl into one of my orifices. There it would proceed to nest and slowly eat my brain and lay eggs...
You know that song that goes "When the moon hits the sky like a big pizza pie, it's amore"? well, i used to think he was saying "it's a Moray", and it made no sense to me until i discovered that AMORE is "love" in Italian! lol
This is a belief that a friend of mine had right up into her early twenties. We were talking about how little lizards or as we call them in Australia "Gecko's" can loose or let go of their tails if something grabs them by it and then grow another tail. I said wouldnt it be good if scientists could work out how they did it and somehow humans could do the same thing if we lost an arm or a leg, my friend burst out with "but I thought that we could grow back our arms or legs if they got cut off" no wonder everyone called her dilly Lee.
Sometimes, when my father was annoyed with me, he told me to "get off his case" about it. For a few years, I always responded "but dad, I'm not sitting on your briefcase!" (He had a briefcase that he took to work, and I thought it was the "case" that he was referring to!)
When I was about six, my father showed me a picture of Jesus and told me, "This is Jesus, you are suppossed to love him", and I thought to myself, "But, he's not even attractive."
I used to think preserves (like jam) and preservatives were the same thing and I heard people say preservatives were bad for you so I wondered why people would eat pure preservatives
When I was about 7 I stayed with my grandparents for the summer. They kept talking about how they were going to "win a bagel". I just didn't understand why they were going to win a bagel. I later learned they were going to buy a camper, a Winnebago!
Airplanes got places faster because it was actually a shorter distance up there.
I used to beleive that Lightening was the angels fliping the light switch on and off, and the Thunder was God yelling at them not too, like my Dad did to me.
