I used to believe that golf balls were really animals from Scotland caled "golfs". I even used to talk to them. I thought hitting them was cruel!
Up to this day, (I'm 18), I believed that chickens self-reproduced. Never in my wildest dreams would I assume that roosters and hens did the wild nature dance. Or cows and almost every other animal for that matter. I got schooled by my roomates, who basically laughed in my face. It was like sex education all over again. I was in denial I thought that farmers just had to feed there chickens until they got fat and the chickens didn't have any room left in their tummies so an egg would come out. What has the world come too?
I used to believe that sheep would fall off the hill
i used to believe that there was a creature called a feather legged tree rabbit! We used to live opposite a wood and my father used to call out "Quick, look, can u see it? - oh, u just missed it. i imagined it to be like a squirrel but with huge ears and feathers down its legs.
when i was little my dad told me that cows that were nearly all white were full of milk and ready for milking and cows that were nearly all black had just been milked!
when i was a kid my granddad used to tell me there were wolves in the woods to stop me wandering off during picnics. i got so scared that my mum told me there was no such thing as wolves, and they all became extinct years ago. no-one ever corrected this belief, until i was 26 and my hubby laughed at me for still thinking there was no such thing as wolves.
My great-grandmother taught me that mountain goats had legs shorter on one side than the other. I imagined all of those goats needing to walk forever in the direction in which their particular anatomy allowed them to walk without falling over.
When I was young, my brothers told me that hammerhead sharks killed you by literally hammering you on the head. I has nightmares about driving through a wave and then being pounded to death by an angry hammerhead!
When I was a child,I believed that any type of small fish would swim under your toenail and get into your bloodstream.I also believedThat big fish will try to bite you,if they succeed you'lll have a huge bloody mark of your skin and that you'll get hives from it,that is if it didn't eat one of your limbs.
Yeah,i'm still Itchyophobic.
When I was younger and watching a lot of western movies I believed that horses had the power to bring cowboys back to life by licking their faces . This seemed to happen a lot when a cowboy had been shot or knocked out . Their horse would stand over them give them a lick and they would be revived .
When i was 8 i had a pony, and i thought he could understand everythink i said, so when i woz around him i would talk to him nicely and is someone called im a nasty name (e.g. idiot) i would cover his ears!
We had a wooden crocodile from Africa and my brother told me it was just dried out, and if I poured water on it, it would come alive. I believed it, and even warned my friends not to do that or it would eat us!
I used to think porcupines would chase after me.
my mam used to buy them big chickens in bags, i always thought the bags of sand builders put over road work signs were chickens in bags from asda...
I thought that if you saw a stag or an elk head mounted on a wall, the rest of the animal was on the other side in the next room.
My dad used to say "when the cows come home" & i lived on a farm. I used to believe that we would be home @ the same time as the cows
When I was little, I saw a possum in the middle of the road (dead, of course). I asked my mom what it was and she said, "Roadkill, sweetie. That's what happens when you run out in the road."
The next week, we were at the zoo and a woman came out of a room holding a live possum. I screamed at the very top of my lungs, "Look, Mom! Roadkill!!!"
I believed that wolf and fox are husband and wife, and rabbit is their child.
I believed that cow and horse are wife and a husband.
When my neighbor was about five, she ran up to a bunch of older boys stomping on those prickly "monkey balls" that come from trees, and started screaming, "Don't hurt the monkeys!" Apparently, she thought monkeys came from eggs.
