ten random beliefs

Once when I was little I went to a farm on a school field trip. A lady showed us the machine used to milk cows. She put it on my thumb so I could feel the suction. After that I believed my thumb had milk in it.

Once I awoke in the night and the clock said 1:00, and I got scared because one hundred was the biggest number in existence. I couldn't go to sleep until I saw it change to 1:01.

When I has a heavy cold, my mum told me that the stuff I was blowing out my nose was called "cattarh". Somehow I got this confused with "guitar" and was convinced I had one inside me that was trying to get out.

When i was young we had a toilet that didn't flush very well and my mum always told me to take a saucepan up there with me when I complained about it not working.

She meant that I should fill it with water and throw the water in the pan as I flushed to help. I didn't know this and for years used the handle to mash my number twos round the u-bend before returning the saucepan to the kitchen cupboard ready for dinner . . .

Nowadays there is always an empty vase in the bathroom to avoid any mis-understanding.

I used to believe that after eating vegetables, you should not drink water. Because one day, a plant will grow and flowers will flood your mouth. Lame right :P

I used to believe that if you dropped a coin on a table and gulped in the air as it fell, that you would be swallowing 'energy' and that this would make you energetic. This is because I had seen a children's science programme on television which said something about energy being 'released' if you dropped a coin.

I used to believe that when I grew up I could invent a new color and it would be number 65 in the crayola box!Because I saw colors other people could not see.

When I was little, I was told that we all have seven layers of skin. I thought those layers were all I was going to have for the rest of my life, and if I were to lose them all, my insides would be exposed! Every time I got a cut or a scrap, I was terrified that I would run out of layers of skin before I got old :)

Although I never believed that there were actually people inside your tv, I thought that you could see the other channels by looking up the side of the tv screen, as if they were all in a big line, and when you changed channels they simply moved across.
