When I was younger I really wanted a pet chinchilla. My parents were against the idea so one night after dinner to stop my questioning my dad told me the reason I couldn't have one was because they were vicious. He explained that a friend of his had a chinchilla and when he went out of town his house keeper accidentally left the lid off of its cage. As the house keeper was vacuuming, the chinchilla escaped and ate her leg off.
For years I believed this without questioning. I actually kept up that belief until a friend of mine mentioned wanting one in middle school. I told her that that was a horrible idea and went on to explain the story. It wasn't until after I had finished that I realized how ridiculous that story was.
When I was 5 or 7 years old, i used to believe that lions are made in a factory.
I used to believe that ponies were baby horses. And by "used to" I mean "until yesterday." I am 29. I am also an idiot.
iv no idea where this believe came from but as long as i can remmeber i was convinced that baboons ate through their bottoms! im 20 now and only realised this wasnt true a few months ago when i said in a (rather random) conversation about baboons in front of my entire family " i think its weird how they feed through their bums" and they couldnt stop laughing
I used think that squirrels were burying their poop when they really were burying their nuts. I thought that they all ran away from me when I approached them because I watched their friends "burying their poop."
I sused to believe dinosaurs lived in my walls.
My dad used to tell me that the tails of lizards would detach on its own and wriggle into humans' ears as and when they wish to. That really freaked me out. Even till now, I'd sleep with my ears covered. Haha!
i used to belief that pigs and sheep hid in my wardrobe at night to scare me
For the longest time I thought that unicorns had simply become extinct...that is until I mentioned it in my freshman year..at university...in a lecture.
When I was a child we had rats in our attic that always did alot of scurrying around at night. I would lie in bed and think that they must be playing baseball up there. Because it sounded like they were running the bases. I imagined them with little miniature caps and gloves and bats. I had a vivid imagination.
When I was little I didn't like moths, they were annoying and ugly. Then I heard this story~
One day all the little angels in the sky were sad, so sad that they were crying, they wanted to make a beautiful rainbow for the people on earth but didn't know how to color it.
On this very same day the very vain, and beautiful butterflies were hosting a family reunion, all the butterflies invited their cousins, the moths, who were even more beautiful and colorful than the butterflies.
The angels decided to call upon the butterflies with the suggestion that perhaps if they only gave up a little color each they could make their rainbow. The butterflies being vain as they were adman refused and laughed hautily at the sad little cherubs. But the moths were kind creatures and decided that if they gave up every last drop of color, they would be able to make a rainbow for the angels and the people of earth.
And so they did, and the rainbow was as beautiful as the moths were on the inside.
I used to believe that lions married tigers.
When I was a kid one old lady used to take care of me when my mom was working.
She moeved in my neighbourhood to live with her son and his family,but before she lived on a village.
So she sometimes talked about her life there(what was very amuzing for a 3 year old) and about all the animals she had.
The story that impresed me the most was about foxes,who came on dark nights to steal her chickens. She did't know that foxes for me were terrible blood thirsty creatures with creepy eyes.
Foxes became my biggest fear. I saw them on the edge of my bed,stearing at me,in the basement where I had to keep my bike,and everywhere in the apartment when I was alone at home.
Today foxes are one of my fav animals.
And I can never see what was so scary about them.
When I was three I used to believe that cow and horse are wife and husband.
I used to think that snake bites just meant that the snake was justcoming back to eat u completely...unless u hid under ur covers at night
I used to think that snarled trees were giant snakes wanting to come in and...sleep in my bed. Once i swore i saw 2 green lights and 2 red i still se them on nights when its cold,raining,and anything would be DYING to come inside...
I was convinced by my loving brother that Ivory soap was made from elephant tusks. Because of this I yelled at my mother for trying to buy it one day at the grocery store. She was not pleased
i used to think that if you picked a glass fish up and dropped it that it would break into a bunch of pieces.(:
I believed that dinosaurs still exsisted in this big pond by where I lived, so when I was younger I would always tell my mom to take me there... and I would see like a cup in the water and be like..."look mom there's one!" and should would say..."I dont see it!" and I would say..." well you can't see them with your eyes...you have to look with your heart!" i guess its kind of cute..but its funny.
i uest to believe that ticks could get on me and suck all my blood out my body. (thanks to my neighbor telling me a scary story)
