ten random beliefs
I read in one of my books that the T Rex used its small arms for preying. I read this as "praying", and wondered how it could get those tiny arms together around its huge body.
When I was a kid I used to think that when I was at the beach in Ocean City, NJ that if I could just swim out far enough or maybe get high enough above the beach I could see Africa. I guess that's technically true.
There was an older kid at our school who was friends with me and my group of friends, and once when we were eating candy he told us what his mother apparently told him, but he must have misunderstood a little. He said that if you eat healthy, you grow bigger, so if you eat bad food, you slowly get smaller...I was really scared I would eventually be microscopic, but luckily his mom was with us once and corrected him.
I used to believe that if you farted in a jar and put it in the fridge it would turn into a cabbage by morning.
When I was little, I use to believe that the reason people stretched all the time was because if they sat too long they would shrink, so stretching was a way to get back the original size.
I used to sleep in my bed all rolled up in a ball. My mom would ask me why and i would tell her that it was beacuse I was afraid that someone would break into our house and upon seeing my incredibly comfortable bed, steal the bottom half of it. I slept balled up to make sure that my legs wouldnt get cut off when he cut my bed in two. Yes, this actually terrified me.
I used to believe that the wind was caused by trees so you could stop the wind by getting rid of trees.
I used to believe Paul Mcartney was my father. I used to fall asleep at night just knowing that any day now he was going to show up at our house and claim me! God knows why I thought this, as I already had a father. Also, I lived in Ohio and my mom didn't even like the Beatles.
My brother used to believe that the handicapped parking spaces were spots that you could squat to go to the bathroom if you couldn't hold it long enough to get into the building. He thought the handicapped symbol looked like a person on a toilet.
My grandfather once told me that you could not pee and poop at the same time, and if you did, you would explode. So for the next 10 years I never let any poop out while I was peeing. Until one day i figured what the heck, and did both at once. It emptied me out in half the time. I was so happy :)
