ten random beliefs
I used to feel really sorry for poor old Will. In every war/movie/cowboy movie I ever saw, some nasty man would shout "Fire at Will!!!"
I wondered why he would agree to appear in so many movies if he knew he was going to be shot at......
I used to believe that pepper created actual heat.
so one day when I didn't want to go to school, I ate about 2 tablespoons of pure ground black pepper, and told my mom I was sick and to take my temperature.
She told me as red as my face was, my temperature was fine.
When I walked to kindergarten, I passed a building with a sign that said "Office"
I firmly believed that the office had a floor of ice, and that the sign was a warning to stay off of that ice!
There was also a sign that said "Notice" and I believed that the sign told you there was no more ice.
I used to believe flying tarantualls were under my bed at night, and if i closed my eyes they would come out, and if i opened my eyes they dissperaed, but if i closed my eyes while i was under a blanket, they didn't know, and wouldn't come out the, i could take the blanket off and go to sleep!
I used to think that "going steady" meant you paired up with a girl and then the two of you would study for tests and do homework together.
i used to believe that babies were dumb because their heads were only filled with hair. as they grew hair it made more room for things to be learned, and by the time they got to be old people and balding, it was because they had finally pushed all the hair out by totally filling thier heads with things learned.
I used to think that birds sang in different languages depending on the country they were in!
When I was younger, I always thought that the name of the ocean was floating in the water, like you see on maps. You know, ATLANTIC OCEAN, in huge letters, anchored to the sea floor, that you can see when you are flying across the oceans. I was a junior in high school when i was set straight.
I used to believe that in the winter, when the farmers wrapped their bales of hay in white tarp, they were actually setting out giant marshmallows for the hungry giants.
When I was about six, I had the theory that if you ever broke a bone it was replaced by one of your smaller "bones" (actually just ridges) that covered your Adam's apple. It would fall into your stomach and expand, then float to wherever needed repair. When you were old and all of your bones had been broken, you would no longer be able to feel your Adam's apple because all your bones had been used. I believed that seriously and told my dad about it, who didn't discourage me from the idea until I was in third grade.
