I believed that if I didn’t “hole some” food I would turn into a skeleton. Donuts were the best, but I would always insist that my mother not cut my baloney sandwich in half so I could bite a hole in the center before eating the rest.

When I was young there were no seat belt laws so no one in my family wore them. The seat belts were always tucked into the crease of the seat. I always wanted to use them but I thought that if I were to pull them out I would damage the car and get into trouble.

When I was about six years old, I had an imaginary friend that I named Angelina. Back then I never heard of Angelina Jolie. But when I finally saw her name in a magazine one day, I got upset and said, "Hey! She stole my imaginary friend's name!" My mom must have thought I was crazy. :/

When I was little my dad was a really bad driver and loved to speed and run red lights with me in the car. Once he told me that getting a ticket from the police was actually a ticket to disney world. This prompted me to encourage him to speed, and break other laws of the road until he eventually got a ticket for zig-zagging across the road. The cop told him he was irresponsible for doing this with a child in the car. Then I asked the officer for the ticket so that we could go to disney. He looked at my dad with disgust.

When I was six, my parents decided it was time to tell me the truth about The Easter Bunny.They said my father was the Easter Bunny, and I took it literally.
I went around for almost a week asking how he could get around the whole world in one night.
