ten random beliefs

While singing the Australian Anthem in primary school, I was utterly convinced the first line (actually saying "Australian all let us rejoice") said "Australians all eat ostriches."

I found out otherwise when my teacher overheard my loud singing and pulled me aside to get me in trouble. I was very confused.

When i was 9, I used to beleive that you would go to hell if you didn't say the lords prayer three times just before you died. The lords prayer had to be the last thing you said .. and you had to say it in full three times.

I used to wander around saying it under my breath just in case something happened to me too quick and I didn't have time to say it.

I must have looked pretty damn strange.

Growing up in warm, humid Texas, we never had a fireplace in our house. I asked my mom how it was that Santa had managed to get into our house all these years. She told me he had keys to all the houses without fireplaces. I believed that until I was eight or nine, then found out the truth about Santa.

When I was little, I believed that if a word was written on a line by itself it would get lonely. I used to make my sentence bigger so it wouldn't be on its own.
I also thought that the i's and t's would get jealous of the order I dotted and crossed them.

when I was little, some college kids lived next door. One girl I was friends with had short hair, but came home day with really long hair. I asked if they glued on each hair individually, and she said yes. For years I thought people would sit for hours having individual hairs glued on to make their hair longer.

I used to think that animals pooed out of their tails. The animal that confused me the most was the horse: how did such a big poo come out of all of those little hairs?
