ten random beliefs
As a kid you see talking plants and trees and animals on cartoons. In Kindergarten I needed to put shiny sparkles on my art paper covered in glue and a teacher pointed me towards a table. I saw a plant on the table and put my picture under the leaves and said "Okay plant, Sparkle!" She was pointing to the dish of sparkles next to the plant. Soon after I also found out that bark on a tree was not a captured dog bark but simply the outside shell. I was becoming really depressed at the fact that plants and trees really don't interact with is very much.
In 2nd grade my dad told me he skipped a rock across Lake Michigan, and I believed him and defended him when I told my class. It was a few years later that I found out how big Lake Michigan actually was.
When I was four, by best friend from preschool called me selfish. I was convinced that I was some weird species of fish.
when I was little, I used to belive that if I didn't go for lots of walks with my dog, she would eventually explode.Which made it so I walked my dog everyother hour.
When I was little, I asked my dad how the holes got in Swiss cheese. He said that people hung up the slices in trees and shot them with bullets from a shotgun.
When I was about 4 or 5, I asked my mom what happened to the bath water once it went down the drain. She told me it went to a plant. She meant a water refinery plant, but for a while after that, I thought that somewhere out there was a plant so big it needed everyone's bath water to grow. :P
When I was around 6, I noticed my mother's friend had slacks with a side zipper, so I thought that women somehow peed out the side of their leg.
My sister used the think that the number of stars a film got represented how many movie stars were in the movie. She was 23 at the time.......
I used to believe that, when I was playing soccer at the yard or at the street (a very common practice in the neighbourhood)the national soccer team couch would see me from his helicopter (?????)and I could be called to join the national team and participate in the World Cup.
a friend of mine once told me that the universe was infinite. When i asked him to elaborate his explantation he told me that if i just kept thinking about it my head would explode. i took him completely seriously and during science lessons would sometimes burst into tears at being forced to contemplate space.
