I used to believe that when u stepped on ants and bugs that they became mad and would try to bring you down later that night so i tried to tiptoe when i was walking and i did that for a good, 3/4 years
I used to believe that if I didn't cover up my ears with my quilt when I was in bed bugs would come and live in them, I still usually cover up my ears.
i used to believe that when you got bitten by a flea they crawled under your skin and played poker then when you got an itch it was when one of the fleas won a poker game and there antennas tickled under your skin.
I used to belive that frogs could jumo on u and eat u! i hate then a am scared of them!!!
When I was about 7, I would catch flies and put them in a set of plastic drawers I had. I would put a soda bottle top full of water and a few of my little toys in with them, figuring they would have a party or make a city. Of course, once they died the next day I always wondered what I did wrong. I'd try to give them new toys, but they never lived.
I used to believe that the bumps that mosquito bites gave you were because the mosquitos crawled under your skin and curled up in a little ball. I hated to itch them because I could just imagine them very happy that I was scratching their backs, and I only wanted them gone.
My Brother used to tell me that if i kept my mouth opened when I was slepping, little spiders would crawl in my mouth and lay eggs and then one night they would crawl out of my nose! Hundreds of them! ( talk about a nice brother! )
the if you swallowed a fly by accident that you would then grow an appetite for dirt.
I used to believe that, when I slept at night, bugs would crawl into my ears and stay there. It was such a strong phobia that I could not sleep without cotton balls in my ears. I am mostly over it but every now and then I need the cotton balls to feel safe enough to sleep.
I have always been petrified of bees and and wasps and any sort of flying object really! And I used to believe that if you stepped on a dead bee it would come back to life and fly after you just to sting you and die again!
When I was about 3 or 4, I believed dragonflies wanted to kill me. I still remember one chasing me all over the backyard, and me barely making it into the house. Besides, they looked weird!
I used to think that cockroaches would visit your house if you didn't brush your teeth.
I used to believe that slugs were deadly and they would bite you and kill you. 0_o Where did I get that idea?
As a child i used to believe that if you put a tube of cardboard on the soil in the garden and listened the swirling sounds you could hear were the sounds of worms moving around in the earth.
i used to believe that there was snakes behide walls
When I was little, I believed that slugs fell from the sky because they always came out when it rained.
I once was terrified of falling through the trap-door of a spider
and never coming out, so I walked very carefully for a long time.
I strongly believed that if you caught a black coloured cicada, you could take it to a pharmacy, and the pharmacist would give you $5.00 (in 1973), as the major part of the 'cure for cancer' that 'they' had just discovered, relied on the black wings of the cicada and the special 'medicine' they contained. Having caught one, I thought I was the richest kid on the block. After telling my partents, they gave me $10.00 not to go.
When I was a kid, the little "helicopter" leaves would come down from the trees, and they would scare me so much, because I thought they were dead bugs that could still fly.
