ten random beliefs
I thought pretending I was sick to stay home from school was called cookie not hookie.
i always thought the signs on the roads that said "EMERGENCY STOPPING ONLY" said "EMERGENCY SHOPPING ONLY" and i thought that if it were christmas eve and you haven't bought any gifts yet you could shop there and there was a mall or something near by.
I used to think that "moonlighting" was being a private detective, just like Cybil Shepard's TV series. Once, my mom and I bumped into one of my teachers at a department store (which, btw, I thought was impossible because teachers didn't have personal lives. I figured that in their free time, they sat at home and read books.), and when I asked my mom what she was doing there, she said that she thought she was moonlighting. My mom also told me to be quiet about it because my teacher could get into trouble if people at school found out (although, at this age, I don't think that qualified as violating a noncompetition agreement). I immediately translated this into her being a private detective, plus the fact that I was supposed to keep it hush-hush, so the next day I ran into school and told all my little friends that our teacher was a spy!
One time when I was doing spelling homework and my dad was correcting it I said "I'm sure I got all the right letters in the words even if they aren't in the right order" That did NOT work!
When we were little my oldest sister thought when you moved to Texas you had to get out of your car, and get in a covered wagon, and fight Indians.
Once I went fishing with some guy and his daughter, I think he was a friend of my parents or something... Anyway, a fish stole my bait without getting hooked and the guy said "Oh, you got mugged".
Later after that I heard about people getting mugged and I thought that fish took their bait while fishing.
I never understood "a stitch in time saves 9" (till fairly recently). I assumed it had something to do with sewing up the fabric of time in a kind of star-trek way.
i used to believe "eaves drop" was actually "ears drop"
When my mum was brushing my hair at night, I used to have lots of tangles and she would say that I had knots in my hair, I understoud nuts and would be very confused.
I used to believe that clowns and teachers weren't really people. I didn't think they had homes. I didn't think they ate dinner. I didn't think they went to the bathroom.
