ten random beliefs
I used to believe that if I went to Antarctica I could stand upside down. (That's when i first learned of a globe)
When I was a little girl my brother told me that white, styrofoam packing peanuts were, in fact, ghost poop. It seemed perfectly logical to my 4 year old ears, and from what little I knew about ghosts it looked exactly like what ghost poop should look like.
i use to belive that chewing gum was a tablet so you only had it if you were ill
I used to believe that the reason we celebrated Jesus's birthday was because he was born on Christmas day. I didn't get the fact that Jesus's birth made it Christmas, I just thought the reason people prayed to him and celebrated him and sang to him and all the rest of it was because he happened to have been born at Christmas. This used to puzzle me because I knew another boy who's birthday was on Christmas day, and I wondered why people didn't also praise HIM, pray to HIM make him an idol etc like they did with Jesus, even though he also had been born on the special day of Christmas.
I used to believe that a mistress was the same as a seamstress and I couldn't figure out why all these men were so attracted to ladies that sew.
I used to think that the planets were really expensive airplanes, and they all had rings which were the decks to the plane. I couldn't wait until I was older and rich enough to travel on a planet. And I thought everyone would go out on the decks as we sailed through the sky, to have drinks and snacks.
I used to believe that "car pools" were cars with pools in them, like in the rock videos.
i used to think that when people sang in foreign languages they were just singing pretend words that they made up as they went along. i wasn't pleased, i thought i'd invented that game.
My stepmother told me when I was about 5 years old that in order for your body to get the vitamins out of peanut butter you had to drink milk with it. I believed that for years!!
Mormons ate Miracle Whip. Catholics ate mayonnaise. This was one of many differences between the 2 religions I noticed growing up in Salt Lake City.
