When I was about 4 or 5 my cousin who is three years older told me if i said the word "snakes", snakes would attack me.
i didn't say the word "snake" till i was nearly nine.
When I Was Little I would hear people talking about 'Tiger Woods'. Of course, I never realised he was a golf player, and would always beg my mum & Dad to take me to 'Tiger Woods' Funny thing was, I was terrified of tigers, ever since i'd met a man in a big furry tiger costume at the shopping center.
I used to believe that animals outside had nowhere to go to the bathroom. I saw a squirrel one day and emptied out a box and followed him with it. Once the squirrel figured out that the box did not contain any food, it bit me.
After reading "The Frog Prince," I tried to treat all frogs with respect, should one of them become a prince again and punish me for mistreating him as a frog.
when I was a little girl, I used to believe the little mouse made her house with our teeth!
( In France, when the little child loses one tooth, he believes that the little mouse takes it! )
When I was little I used to peek around the door to my room and watch what my parents were watching on TV when I should have been sleeping. One night they watched Jaws. After that I was afraid of the toliet and thought a shark was going to pop out and get me. I was also afraid of the wave pool. In the deep end there were bars under water blocking kids from getting into where the wave machine was and I thought that was where the sharks were kept.
when we wne to my aunts house for a viset she had a back room that had a ladder going up to the roof..so my brother and i being curious wanted to see what was up there..before we could climb up my parents told us that my aunt had giant rats up there and if we opened the door they would get out and bite us
I used to believe that if you held a Guinea pig upside down, it's eyes would fall out.
I had a great theory when I was younger...
1. Squirrels are evil.
2. They are trying to kill all of the humans so they could gain world domination.
3. Different colored squirrels have different rankings in their cult. (Grey squirrels are the lowest, then black, red, flying, and albino on the top.)
4. The little lizards down in Florida (the ones that lose their tails) are in on it too.
5. Sasquatch may have a small part.
I used to believe that crocodiles were green because they were uncooked
I used to think that a lot of pets you could own were actually wild animals. Ferrets, hamsters, lizards, turtles, snakes... I didn't realize you could buy these animals in a pet store until I was 12.
When I was about four my mom told me that millions of years ago people used to be chimps. And I went 'Did grandma used to be a monkey?' and I was sure that everyone was born a monkey and as they got older they turned human.
this one is my ex girlfriends apparently her older brother convinced her as a kid that an egg was a chickens period i had to coax her out of this belief several times but if i ever got mad at breakfast id say hey is that blood in the yolk.
when i was 8 i belived that smurfs were real and that people cant see them but cats can. so when i discovered that robins eggs were blue i came to the conclusion that robins and cats ate smurfs which is why they fought in my backyard and were always under the pine tree in my backyard. i learned later that our cat was hunting rabbits in our backyard and that smurfs didnt exist at the age of 10
When I was little my brother had a stuffed animal sheep and he named it pitpot. So I always thought that another name for a sheep was a pitpot until last year I found out it wasn't.
my mom and dad thought it would be funny to tell me (the 1 and a half year old) that cows were horses and horses were cows, so for a year they made me think that that was true and i guess my gram yelled at them and told them they should be teaching me the truth
Until a couple months ago (God) that only female humans had periods. I'd never seen a cat or dog that wasn't fixed (in a house) or a stray (outside) that, I guess, would be in the same spot the whole time or simply wouldn't clean themselves. It just seemed weird because, you know, your dog only has two holes instead of three (actually, four). Until I asked my mom why Kaya (my dog) didn't have a period...because she's never ovulating, because she's FIXED--duhh.
After I saw Jaws, I thought that sharks could be in any place that had water. Bath tubs, swimming pools, lakes, toilets, etc...
I used to think that butterflies made butter
An old man in our neighborhood wanted to keep the kids out of his shed. He told us there was a porcupine in the shed that would shoot quills at us if we entered the shed. About 10 years after it dawned on me....there was no porcupine.
