ten random beliefs
I believed that I could walk to, and touch, the setting sun, if only I was allowed to cross the big road that passed between me and the West.
I thought that the map of England used on the weather forecast was the plot of land our house was built on. It never occured to me that it couldn't possibly be freezing and snowing out front and 5 degrees warmer and sunny out the back at the same time!
When I was little I used to think that when I flossed or brushed my teeth, if there were any specks of food on the brush or floss, that it was the cavity creatures from the toothpaste commercials.
My Dad told me that biting my nails would result in a large toenail being attached to my stomach lining.
I used to think I was a vampire, and that my parents were trying to kill me by making me go to school.
Walking at night my 4-year-old daughter kept staring at the moon above the trees. "I think the moon's following us," she said. "Papa, you stay here." She walked about 100 feet, staring constantly at the moon.: Then she stopped and called out, "Papa, come here!" I did, while she kept gazing at the moon. Then she said,"No, it's not following us. It's only following ME!"
i used to think the definition of being rich was having a room full of money that reached up to your knees. i didn't take into account if the room was really big of the money was pennies or hundred dollar bills. This was shortly after i learned that having four dollars did not make me rich.
One evening we were all chatting in the kitchen, eating low fat yoghurt.. Once finished, my younger sister -who must have been 6 at the time- stood on a chair and eagerly asked: "Do I look thinner now?"
When I was very little I used to believe that when someone was running for president, the two people running were at one side of the basketball court and raced to the other side and the winner of the race became president.
i used to believe if i remained in the tub when my mom pulled the plug i would go down the drain with the water. (i didn't like escalators either)
