ten random beliefs
As a kid I believed that the dial tone on your phone was the operator going *oooooooo* all day long. I used to pick up the phone to see if I could catch her not doing it, like on a break or lunch.
On day when I was little, I asked my mom why we always stop at the gas stations and she said, its because the car needs food so it could run. One day I felt bad that the car never got any dessert, so I put some left over cake in the engine.
When I was 3-4 I thought that your stomach had different compartments for different kinds of food and that that I could get out of eating what I didn't want if I said my vegetable part was full but my cake part was empty.
I used to think that the second exhaust pipe on certain cars was for the sick to flow out of when somebody had vomited in the car. Don't ask me how the sick reached the pipe!
My sister used the think that the number of stars a film got represented how many movie stars were in the movie. She was 23 at the time.......
I used to believe that waffles were made by tiny elves scooping holes out of pancakes. I also thought that's where doughnut holes came from.
Not knowing the word “tailgater,” I assumed that it must be a variety of alligator. Family trips to Colorado were terrifying for me, given that my father spent hours cursing all the tailgaters that were RIGHT… BEHIND… OUR CAR.
I used to believe that speedbumps were actually there for the blind to drive, and they read it like braille. Thanks to my older brother and sister of course.
When I was four I thought there was a dragon in our cellar because you could see its red eye glowing in the dark. Turns out, it was the freezer ...
When I was 11 I read on a paranormal stories site (supposedly "true") about a method anyone could use to make themselves invisible. I tried it, and took a walk around my house, and when my parents never noticed me I flipped because I was sure it actually worked. I tried it on the my parents and on the kids at the park. Finally, I decided to tell my dad about it and he rolled his eyes and said you can't make yourself invisible. I tried it on the kids at the park again and it turned out they were just ignoring me, and the last time I tried it they messed with me and acted like I had disappeared and there was a ghost around. That's when my invisibility dream ended.
