When i was little girls, i thought that the little mouse existed an i absolutaly wanted to see it with my own eyes ! So i put the tooth that i lost under my pillow and i waited for hours....Until i saw my mom enter in my room so i pretented to sleep then she slipped a coin under my pillow. The next morning , i showed the two euros coin to my mom and she said "oh ! the little mouse was go in you room ! " and i answered "the little mouse is very big !" in laughing.

I read a book about a cat that had to turn into a lion and leave. It was around the same time as we got our cat and I was worried that our cat would turn into a lion.

When I was 2 years old I used to pout when I didn't get my way, and my lower lip would stick out. My mom told me that a birdie was going to potty on my lip if I didn't stop pouting (we happened to be outside at that moment). I remember being on the lookout for that bird, and bracing myself for the impending bombardment, because I sure as heck wasn't going to stop pouting!

One day in the front yard when I pointed to the shell of a garden snail and asked my mom what it was, she said it was the snail's house. I imagined that when the snail retreated into his house he had all sorts of tiny furniture inside. I pictured the snail lounging on a couch, watching TV, and there was a little kitchen, and also a bedroom. The logistics of this made complete sense to me, because I believed that when the snail went inside his house he got smaller in the same way as when I saw the character Jeannie shrink down in size when she went into her bottle on the "I Dream of Jeannie" TV show. During the scenes where Jeannie was shown sitting on her pillows inside her bottle, you could see the groovy-looking interior walls of the bottle, and I imagined that same appearance for the interior walls of the snail's house.

When we first got our cat, I thought of all kinds of things. I tried to put clothes on him and couldn't understand why he didn't like it, I sometimes worried that he'd get replaced with an impostor, and because his name's ElDorado, when my dad's friend Marcus said that he thought "his ElDorado" (his wish) was a fine meal with friends, I freaked out because I thought he wanted to eat the cat!
