ten random beliefs
When I was little I used to believe that if i picked the stuff out of my bell button, it would come undone and my guts would spill out. I am 23 now and still don't like anyone touching my belly button.
when i was a child, i used to believe paper notes (money), once become crumpled or soaked wet, would be unacceptable and unuseable. well, mom gave me and my sister (younger than me yet infinitely wiser) a $5 bill one day after school to go get some groceries, I dropped it in the gutter and it was promptly soaked with rain water. my sis picked it up and said it's ok, use it, i grabbed it from her and chucked it out the window, which got blown away immediately. my sis saw such horror on my face, not because she thought I did such a stupid thing as throwing away good money, but that I made it wet in the first place!
I know my dog, Palmer, spoke English, he was just really quiet.
When I first came to the U.S. I was 5 years old and it was winter. A few days into the move to our apartment in NYC it had snowed overnight. When I first saw the snow I thought it was piles of sugar all over the streets. I asked my dad why there was sugar all over the streets, he laughed.
until I was a teenager I believed that it was more expensive to sit upstairs on a doubledecker bus. This was so that my mother would not have to climb the stairs with her bags of shopping.
I used to believe you could pour lemonade in a pan, put it in the oven and make lemonade cake.
I thought that bullets might shoot out of the shower head when first starting the shower. Being in the shower when it was turned on was a bit like playing Russian Roulette.
my dad used to tell me that if you pointed at things, you were poking holes in the air and the fairies/birds would trip over them.
i'm still hesitant to poke holes..
I thought that since boys sat down when they went #2 and stood up when they went #1, and since girls sat down for #1, they had to poo standing up because it just all made sense when I was little.
i thought fog had something to do with frogs
