ten random beliefs
My parents used to tell me that if I didn't wear my seatbelt then we would automatically get in a crash. It was a really good way to get me to wear my seatbelt but whenever someone didn't have theirs on I would freak out.
My dad told me, when i was about 6, that if i farted with my head under the blanket, my hair will become curly. I didn't buy that, but my younger brother did. The funny thing is that his hair later on really became curly:D
when i was about 7 or 8 my dad had to get surgery on his left shoulder. a few weeks after that, we were driving on the highway and there was a sign that said "left shoulder ok," meaning it was ok to drive on the left shoulder of the road. but i thought the "highway people" (whoever they were) were personally talking to my dad and asking if his shoulder was ok!
This is a belief that a friend of mine had right up into her early twenties. We were talking about how little lizards or as we call them in Australia "Gecko's" can loose or let go of their tails if something grabs them by it and then grow another tail. I said wouldnt it be good if scientists could work out how they did it and somehow humans could do the same thing if we lost an arm or a leg, my friend burst out with "but I thought that we could grow back our arms or legs if they got cut off" no wonder everyone called her dilly Lee.
I used to think that a mug shot was a picture of the criminal that was put onto police mugs which were then handed to cops all over the country so that they could recognise the bad guy.
When my sister and I were little, my dad told us the cows on the hills were "Hill Cows" and that two of their legs were shorter than the other two so if they stood on flat ground they'd fall over.
When I was a kid, I believed that a little troll lived under our house and he was angry because we lived there. Since he was too small to make us move, he charged us taxes by taking one sock out of the dryer. I held this belief through college and have yet to hear a logical explanation for the disappearing sock
I used to believe that the world is a snow globe for giants and they would sit and watch us move around for their entertainment.
When I was about 6 I overheard my mother saying, 'wow, Judy chose a really nice boyfriend.' When I heard the word 'chose' I imagined a line of really handsome muscular men all waiting for me to choose one of them to be my boyfriend. I was so disappointed when I realized dating wasn't like I imagined.
I used to think that when you were an adult you never slept because as you got older you got to stay up later and later, so i thought that eventually you just didn't sleep.
