ten random beliefs
i used to believe that a mortgage was a big pirates chest that my mom and dad used to keep in the attic.
i used to believe "eaves drop" was actually "ears drop"
I used to believe that if i somehow figured out how to cut a hole in the TV while cartoons were on I would be able to reach my hand through (or maybe just step in if the hole was big enough) that I would turn into a cartoon.
My friend and I used toy shovels to dig in the school soccer field, convinced we would find gold there. We did it during every recess.
I used to believe that tiny men lived in shop tills and decided how much each item should cost. I thought that bar codes were their own special language.
I used to believe that we all lived in a yellow submarine
when i was little, thinking about growing taller made me sad because that meant i would be farther away from my feet, who happened to be my very good friends at the time.
WHEN I WAS LITTLE I USED TO WONDER HOW PEOPLE KNEW WHICH SIDE OF THE STREET TO DRIVE ON. THEN OF COURSE I REALIZED THAT IT WAS THE PEOPLE WHO GOT UP THE EARLIEST WHO PICKED THE SIDE OF THE STREET EVERYBODY WOULD HAVE TO DRIVE ON THE REST OF THE DAY.
All throughout elementary school, I believed that it was illegal for teachers to come into the bathrooms. So, during class, when we had an assignment I didn't want to do (journal writing, for instance), I would tell the teacher I had to go to the bathroom. I would stay in the bathroom stall playing my GameBoy or reading a book for about 45 minutes and return to class when the the assignments were about over. When the teacher would take me aside and ask why I was in the bathroom for so long, I pretended to be embarrassed and told her I had bad constipation. I never got caught, and was usually excused from the assignments. Foolproof.
Until i was 8, I believed that, If you didn't have a chimney, Santa Clause would come in through the toilet.
