ten random beliefs

When I was around six I had a book of magic tricks that was also a pop-up book that served to carry around little things used for performing the trick (you take them out of little pockets in the pictures in the book). Well, there was one picture that took place in a restaurant or something and there was a dollar sticking out of a character's pocket that was removable. Thinking it was for a trick, I removed it and the tab on the end of it says "Put it back, you thief!" I freaked out and shoved it back in the pocket, thinking the book had really saw me take the dollar and thought I'd been trying to steal! I was afraid to even look at that page for a while.

my parents told me that santa hired elves that made cookies and built toys and they lived among us (i had discovered my uncle was dressed as santa one year) and so my aunt and uncle were secret "elves" and that was how there were so many santas in so many shopping malls, because the elves relayed the information back to headquarters. i couldn't believe i had elves in my family.

As I constantly questioned authority when my parents told me that if I didn't buckle my seat belt in the car the police would write us a ticket.

I somehow came to believe that police officers had a device (which looked vaguely familiar to a gameboy) that they used to scan cars and it would tell them if a seat belt was unbuckled.

Until I was 9 I compulsively buckled all seat belts in the car, even when no one was sitting in that seat.

When I was about 7, I decided that rocks were really dinosaur eggs. So for about a week, I left five rocks in my sink, trying to get them warmer so they'd hatch and I'd have some pet dinosaurs. I even planned on keeping them in the backyard when they got bigger. Then if the got out of control, I'd probably move to a farm...

When i was about 13, my grandmother was visiting us, and it just happened to coincide with my mother asking me to go hang a load of wash out on the clothesline. I was baffled when I picked up my dad's jockstrap.. I was convinced that it must be one of my grandmother's bras.. and she must have been born single (center) breasted. It was several more years before i figured out what it actually was.

when i was younger, i thought a flood was when water filled your house to the ceiling in all the rooms. i couldnt swim, so i usually slept with my water wings on my arms. i didnt want my mom to know i was scared for some reason, so when she asked me why i sleep with the water wings, i told her i wore them because they kept me warm.

When I was little I used to lay on the ground and look up at the sky. I swore I could see the earth turning, because I thought clouds were stationery so the movement I was seeing must be the earth spinning slowly.
