ten random beliefs

When I was quite young my parents and grandparents would go mushroom hunting every spring. I always thought it was strange that my mother and grandmother only went mushroom hunting and not rabit or feasant hunting like my father an grandfather. I could not imagine my mother or grandmother shooting at anything. I thought it some sort of small animal you hunted and then later ate for dinner.

I was told by my grandma that there were things called wim-wams which were used for winding the sun up and down and which were kept on the side of the road just for that purpose. I've realised (only recently) that a wim-wam turned up every time Grandma saw a piece of farm machinery she didn't recognise. I expect there's a lot more of them now.

When I was little, my grandma sang at Sunday mass, so we always sat up front to watch her. At the front was a huge crucifix with a bloody Jesus hanging on it that I thought was really bleeding. I would bring band-aids to church every Sunday for Jesus and leave them on the pew when we left. It took me a long time to figure out why he never used them.

When I was about 6, my older brother and 2 older sisters told me they were special because they were from Venus and my parents took them in. I believed that for about a year, it took that long for my Mom to convince me they had lied. But for a year I was most upset because I wasn't from Venus too.

When I was little I was terrified of fire. Fire drills. Candles. Fireplaces. You name it. I was terrified. To alleviate my fears my parents told me that the only way our house could catch on fire was if someone poured gasoline on our house and lit it. Well my little ears heard "vaseline," so for years I had nightmares of people smearing vaseline on our house and lighting it on fire.

Up until I was about eight years old, to get me to bathe thoroughly, my mom would often tell me that if I didn't clean my bottom good enough that I would develop worms inside my bum. Said worms would then slither out of my bum late at night. I made sure to keep my privates as clean as possible.

When I was younger, we living in a unit block and the entrance was directly below our balcony.

I used to believe that spiting onto people walking in was a victimless crime and that if I did manage to hit them, they would be really impressed with my aim.
