ten random beliefs
I used to think that 'Nerds' candy (basically sugar coated in flavoring) would make your eyesight poor and you would have to wear glasses, and that was why they often call people with glasses nerds.
When I was really little, I thought that maybe mountains and valleys were created by dinosaurs. I thought dinosaurs were big enough that, when they made a step, mud would squish out from under their feet and form the mountains; valleys were left where their footprints originally were.
I was very little when President Nixon's Watergate scandal happened. My father sat me in front of the television and said "Darling, this is history you need to watch. Our president has been very bad and he's going to get impeached"
I was about three so I thought that they were going to lock Nixon up in a giant peach and I got very upset. I had heard about Peter-Peter Pumkin Eater's wife and I didnt think locking people up in vegatables was nice.
I used to believe that salami was the meat from elephant's feet
When I was little, I overheard my grandfather persuade my cousin to eat spinach by promising him it would put hair on his chest. Being a five year old girl, I was horrified by this notion. I refused to touch the stuff until I was nearly thirty.
In my neighborhood we have notelephone poles, or wires or anything running along the outsides of the houses. All the wires are run underground. Out by my driveway in the ground there is a thing for the electrical companies to get to the wires if they need to. I used to think that this was my Grandpa Tony's grave. I used to pray by it, & place dandelions that i had picked from my yard on top.
My cousin told me that he had a frog in his knee then he flexed his knee cap so it would twitch and that sealed the belief.
When I was little, I used to believe that the tops of trees touched the sky.
I USED TO THINK ALL GOTHS WERE GHOSTS AND THEY WERE SAD BECOUSE THEY COULD'NT FIND THEY'RE WAY TO HEAVAN.
When I was a kid I thought the toilet took a picture of you every time you flushed, so I would often look into the toilet bowl and smile when I flushed. I wasn't sure why, or where the pictures went, though.
