ten random beliefs
Apparently, my mom and her friends were very ladylike. Until I was about 23 and living with my fiancee, I was utterly convinced that females were physically incapable of farting.
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 :)
I used to believe that objects could breathe. I would open all the drawers in the house so that the things in the drawers could breathe properly.
As a kid I read the line "won't stick to most dental work" on the side of chewing gum packages. I thought dentists must use special paper in their offices that wouldn't allow gum to stick to it.
My friend, James, use to belive that if you bought a new telly it would show programmes from the very start of television history. His theory fell apart when I asked him how both out tellies had the same program on at the same time. "Our mums must have bought them at the same time!"
I used to think that a cubic foot was how things were measured in Cuba. I'd hear ads for refrigerators with so many cubic feet of space and I just didn't get it. Were all refrigerators made in Cuba? I think I was 12 or 13 before some one set me straight on that one.
when I was a young man my dad convinced me that haggis's were little hairy creatures that lived on Scotish hillsides with legs that were shorter on one side so they could stand on the hill comfortably, how easily we are mislead :0)
When I was a little girl, I was puzzled by why my father left the toilet seat up so often. Being not acquainted with the true reason men lift the toilet seat when using it, I came to the conclusion that since my father had a large butt (he happened to be a tad overweight at the time), the toilet seat was too small for him to use--thus, he had to lift the seat and use the wider rim of the toilet itself when using the bathroom. I mentioned this to my mother once, and she just stared at me, perplexed, then laughed and walked away without saying anything.
The two people in the Garden Of Eden were named "Adamandeve" and "Eve"
I used to think that "cross-eyed" meant that people had X's for eyes, like dead people in cartoons.
