i used to believe that if i didnt get out of the bathroom after 5 seconds of flushing the loo, spiders would come from nowhere and crawl all over me
I used to believe that if I squashed a big hairy spider then all his little spider friends would somehow know, and they would come and get me while I was sleeping.
I still can't bring myself to kill one.
When my sister was little, she didn't know what granddaddy longlegs were called, so when she saw one in the tub, she ran off screaming, "There's a chicken leg in the bathtub!" She called them that for years.
When I was little, I was a huge fan of the Rugrats. My favorite episode was the one where Chuckie adopted a roly-poly bug and named it Melville. There were a lot of roly-polies in our backyard, and we used to collect them in jars, but until I was in about third grade I thought that this type of insect were actually called Melvilles.
I used to believe that dragon flies would blow out fire! so when i saw one i would scream aaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwww!!! fire fire fire!
when i was little my dad told me that flies kicked. I still sort of believe him to this day, even though logic tells me its not true, he has never denied it.
When I was 5 or 6 I ( and the rest of the kids)used to believe that butterfly wing powder if blown into someones eyes will cause perpetual blindness
I used to believe that I was queen of the butterflies, and I could telepathically communicate with them. My brother believed he was king of the dragonflies. So when we'd be outside, I would try my hardest to tell a butterfly to rest on my hand or attack my brother, and he'd do the same with his dragonflies.
My mum used to think that wasps made marmalade. it's perfectly reasonable, at their house they ate marmalade and honey, honey comes from, bees,and wasps must do something!
My brother ate a spider in the garden and my mum told me and my brother that it would crawl out of his bellybutton. I told all my friends because i was convinced it was true.
When I was little I wouldnt walk in the grass with bare feet because I thought that the bugs in the yard were going to eat my feet off
When I was about 6 or 7, I was on a family vacation and our hotel room had those ceilings that look all bumpy and such. I aksed my sister what the bumps were, and she told me that inside of them there were tons and tons of gross bugs! And then told me that sometimes
the bumps break open and the bugs fall on people while they sleep!
When I was like five in my back yard, there was leaves falling because it was fall. I was lieing on the grass with my eyes closed all relaxed, and a "spider" that was bigger than my face fell on my nose, I got up and screamed and ran away. Turns out it was a leaf, but until I figured that out, I never once was found laying down outside in the grass.
One night I was sleeping on my side with my ear uncovered, and out of nowhere I had this horrible vision of a spider on the ceiling falling off right into my ear. To this day, I am unable to sleep with my ears uncovered. (I have to cover them with the blankets or my hair)
i used to believe that when my feet fell asleep that i had gotten red ants in my shoes. so whenever my foot fell asleep i would run to my parents and tell them to take me to the doctor quick because i had ants crawling inside my feet!!!
My dad told me that if you kill the queen ant (the big ant with wings), all the ants in her colony would attack you. Thus, adding to my sleeping disorder. I can't believe that i believed him.
my sister once tolled me that mosqueto bites were due to the fact that mosquetos made a hole in our body and had intered in it...so when i asked her if i hit the bit would it die...she said...for sure....so i kept hitting my self like a crazy child....later i knew she was bluffing
I used to think that if you broke a spider's web, that spider would come after you & seek retribution! I still feel a twinge of fear every time I walk into one - and I'm a 27-yr old, 6 ft 1 guy!
when i was a little girl i took a broken fly to the vets and said it had a broken wing. the vet took it and placed it in his hands and said abrakadrabra and chucked it in the air. he said it was mended and that it had flown away. i belived this for a long time.
when i was about 6 my big brother (11) told me that if i went outside the killer bees would get me and eat me up.
of course i beleived him and ran in side at once then didnt come out for about 5 days lol
