ten random beliefs

When I would get up at night to go to the bathroom, I never turn on the light because it makes it harder to get to back to sleep. But, up until I was about 25, I would never look at myself in the mirror as I washed my hands because I was sure I would have glowing red eyes. I think I finally told myself to grow up, and tested the theory enough times to prove it wrong

When we were little kids eating watermelon at my Grandma's house my Uncle John used to cut the red part out of the watermelon and eat it, leaving us the pink and white part before the rind. He said he was taking out the bad part so we would not get sick.

All I knew that was different between a man and a woman when i was little was that a man stood up to go to (use) the bathroom and a woman had to sit down. So I came to the conclusion that also men didn't poop because that would mean they would have to sit do it.

When I was on vacation, we drove past a bookstore, and I read the sign(silently), but accidentally left out a letter. It was a Christian bookstore, which it also said on the sign. I only thought 'That's an unusual name for a store.' Fortunately we drove past it again, because we had gotten lost, as usual, and this time I was able to see that the name also included the letter 'I'.
The name of the store was 'Arise'.

When I was about five or six, I thought the "Hazard" button on a car, if pressed while the car was in motion, would make the car do a jump ala "The Dukes Of Hazzard". I never got up the nerve to press it, though.

I used to believe that when I grew up I had to marry my brother because we had the same last name. I was very angry about this because at the time I really didn't like him.
