ten random beliefs
I used to believe that insects came from raindrops. Why? My Dad told me so. I had an arguement with my primary school teacher over it, and even her clever use of fact and logic wasn't enough to convince me my dad had fibbed.
when i was a kid, i believed the news far too literally. when the news reporter said "a man is helping police with their enquiries" i thought a nice bloke had gone to the police station on his day off, with notepad and pen, and said offered to carryout interviews.
My two year old believes that electiricty poles are actually there for the birds. "They hold up ropes for the birds to stand on".
In kindergarden used to believe that if I drank milk, I would grow facial hair ["milk mustache."] But for some reason I didn't think this applied to chocolate milk, so for about 2 years I would only drink chocolate milk.
When I was little we lived on a farm, and there were a lot of wild cats. My sister told me that the reason the cats never came near people was because I was evil, and they could sense that. She told me that all that cats had been friendly before I was born.
When I was small, I realised that our house didn't have a chimney. I got really worried about this because I didn't know how Santa was going to deliver all our presents, so my Dad made a giant paper mache key and told me that Santa could use his magic to turn it into a real key so he could use the front door to get in.
When I was about 6, I was convinced that I was a talking super hero cat called Tabitha. My Mum was so concerned that she took me to see a councilor.
I always wondered how it was that women could get bachelor's degrees. And I wondered how it was that my dad was trying to get one when he was married to my mom. I thought they were going to have to get divorced when he got his bachelor's degree.
I thought I had a family of frogs in my belly...I think this belief came from the expression "frog in your throat", and I thought they must have moved down in to my tummy to live.
They liked to eat oyster crackers.
My older brother told me that if you ate nothing but bananas and vaseline all your life, you would live forever.
