ten random beliefs
When I was young and started learning how to read I read a sign at the mall next to an escalator that said "Adults must accompany children at all times when riding" and theres was a picture with an adult holding a child's hand, but as a child my imagination was very wild and I thought "adult" said alligator and the picture was and alligator too so I told my mom that I couldn't go down the escalator with her until I found an Alligator. Of course that belief didn't last long when she dragged me on the escalator and I found that nothing bad happened to me even with no alligator.
I used to believe that north was always straight ahead. I could never face south, but I knew it was behind me!
In order to get me to stop whistling, my grandmother told me that if I whistle, I will grow a mustache. I totally believed her up until the 5th grade.
I used to believe that tornadoes were giant slices of tomatoes that rolled across a farm. It wasn't untill I was five and saw the Wizard of Oz that I realized it was not a giant slice of tomotoe.
when I was a young man my dad convinced me that haggis's were little hairy creatures that lived on Scotish hillsides with legs that were shorter on one side so they could stand on the hill comfortably, how easily we are mislead :0)
Until I was about 9 years old I used to believe my younger sister would one day catch up with me and be may age. I remember I really wanted this to happen as she is 4 years younger than me and at that time she seemed more like a baby to me than a playdate. So I was really happye when we celebrated her birhtdays thinking "well, shes finally growing!"
I used to believe that when the sun is shinning and the rain is falling at the same time, an elephant is giving birth..
You know that song that goes "When the moon hits the sky like a big pizza pie, it's amore"? well, i used to think he was saying "it's a Moray", and it made no sense to me until i discovered that AMORE is "love" in Italian! lol
When I was little I remember the teacher asking "Does anyone need to go to the potty?" I totally thought she meant "party" so I was like "ooh! me! me!". Boy, I was disapointed when she took me to the bathroom and there was no party. The funny part is that I did that more than once.
I used to believe that until gravity was invented, people used to just float around!
