ten random beliefs

As a kid I desperately wanted to be a Girl Guide, but I thought you had to be born one, like being an Orthodox Jew or a Catholic. I couldn't wait till I grew up, could convert to being a Girl Guide, and get to wear a blue uniform all day and earn badges.

My dad used to call the toothfairy and haggle with her a fair price for my tooth. I would always get scared when he would say "$10 dollars or nothing" and beg him to go lower. I once even got a vcr.

When I was about 4 my grandmother told me that eating carrots helped me to see in the dark. I somehow misheard this as 'carrots make your eyes glow in the dark.' Needless to say, I immediately gobbled my veggies down and was very dissapointed when my eyes failed to light up the room that night.

I used to think that the lyrics to the Pink Floyd song "Another Brick in The Wall pt 3" Were
"The Dukes of Hazzard in the classroom" but, much to my dismay I think Roger Waters was singing about the dark sarcasm.

I thought that the Far East was the same thing as the east coast of the United States. I once asked my dad, "Don't Grandma and Grandpa live in the Far East?" (they live in Boston) He said no, and then I guess I figured it out!

Digging tunnels in the dirt in the play-yard of the daycare center in which I was imprisoned while my parents worked, I feared briefly that I may dig too deeply and reach Hell and thereby loose Satan upon the Earth's surface.
