ten random beliefs
When I was small, when I dug in a sandpit, I thought if I dug far enough I would end up in China.
China isn't even the other side of the world for me!
I think I got the idea from a cartoon or something.
When I was little I used to believe that people had to ask god's permission before they could use fireworks because they would be disturbing the people in heaven.
When I was younger I used to belive that bats were imaginary.
This was because the only place I had ever seen them was in Scooby Doo cartoons!
I was actually mid-teens before I realised that they were real.
The only way I found out was by watching a wildlife documentry on TV, I was very disappointed when I saw them because I had always imagined them to be the size of a seagull!!
I live in Quebec, Canada and when I was 8 years old there was the referendum and all the adults were talking about it. I thought that if Quebec seperated from Canada, they would literally take a jackhammer and detach Quebec from the rest of Canada along the border lines and we would float into the ocean.
When I was very little I used to believe that if you broke a record little people would come running out and if I was fast enough I could catch them and have my own little living dolls.
I used to believe that I could pull my ears off. So every night before going to bed, I would tug relentlesly at my ears! Why I wanted them to come off I don't know!
As a child I was totally floored by the fact that my dad owned a monkey wrench. We had never had any monkeys that needed to be taken apart and I could never figure out which part of a monkey it would fit on even if we had.
I used to believe that if I got a pet penguin it could live in the freezer.
I thought that bullets might shoot out of the shower head when first starting the shower. Being in the shower when it was turned on was a bit like playing Russian Roulette.
My mum told me that for every chicken pox spot that I scratches, another one would form on my waist. Everytime I scratched one, another one would appear, until eventually they spots would go round my waist like a belt. She then said that when they went all the way round and joined up again at the front, I would die. Never scratched one after that !
