ten random beliefs
I used to believe that french fries were stuffed with mashed potatoes... but I could never figure out how they got in there.
When I was little I thought that reincarnation meant that you turned into a walking and talking carnation if you weren't succesfull in life.
I used to use an old trailer at my grandparents' house as a playhouse. Once my aunt came over to 'visit' and, playing hostess, I brought her an ashtray. "Oh, I don't smoke" she said. "You don't?" I asked, incredulous. I was about 3 or 4 and because my parents and many of my relatives smoked, I thought all adults smoked!
When I was a kid, I used to believe I was batgirl and that I could fly. Learned out the hard way that I really wasn't, when I put on my cape, climbed on top of the bathroom sink and dove head first into the tub... cracking my skull open. OUCH that hurt!
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 you ordered small fries they were just shorter
When I was little my big sister told me to say hi and be nice to the mannequins at the mall because they were people too!
I remember being swung across the backseat of a car when my dad made a sharp turn. I asked my dad why it happened, and he told me, "It's something called enersha". So I believed that there was an invisible girl named "Enersha" who would occaisonally push me from time to time. I apparently got in trouble at school many times for blaming Enersha when I dropped something.
I used to think that at some point during every plane flight, the plane would crash, but people only died if they didn't successfully land in clouds. Cirrus clouds were adequate, but the best cloud to land in would be a cumulus. Halfway through my first plane flight, I got really nervous because there were no clouds, and my mom asked me what was wrong. She laughed and explained. I was six.
I didn't want to get tall when I was younger because I believed that I would fall over.
