My sister thought that cars didn't actually move. Instead, the whole world moved around us and a car was some magic object that made it happen somehow. Even stranger, she didn't think that the objects just traveled, moreover that they got up and walked with legs like people do. To her, it was such an adventure, as if the whole world was marching parade style past the windows every time we drove somewhere. Can you imagine how fun the world must have been in her head?

I used to believe that all the things in Earth were alive. So, I was used to making friends everywhere, either a plush, a fork or even a line in a glass. And I used to speak with them when I was alone, like "Hello Mr. Sun, How are you today? " and I answered to myself like "I am very good thanks for asking".

Once when I was taking a nap with my back to the room, and facing the wall, I felt someone splinch me on the back. I woke up with a start and turned over and my sister was in the doorway of the room, but too far away to have touched me. She swore she had not done it, but ever after that I NEVER sleep with my back to the room, if the bed is up against the wall.

When I was a little kid, I was scared to sit on the toilet because I thought there was a monster inside the toilet that was going to bite me, and I was also scared of the smaller potty that lights up for the same reason. I kept wearing pull-ups until I became old enough to wear underwear.

When I was 5, or 6, my older cousin told me something that scared me. He said that the big vacuum cleaner that my mom used was a monster and that if i got too close to it, I would get sucked into it and I'll be stuck in it for the rest of my life. Whenever my mom would vacuum, I would be standing on my bed and when i got close to the vacuum cleaner I would start screaming and crying!

When I was a kid, my dad would warn us not to break the TV screen because it would implode. I didn't know what implode meant, so I assumed he meant explode. I was often afraid to sleep near it, because I thought it would blow up.

When I was kid I saw for the first time a dead man. He was an ancient men who lived near my home. For at least some years, I saw the coffin in the corridor in my home near the telephone furniture. I was very scared, when I went from my bedroom to the bathroom and opposite, I used to pass adhering to the wall, and sometimes I asked to the man let me pass.

I used to think that when you bought something off the internet you payed by taking apart the monitor and putting coins in.

Then when I found out that you used a credit card I thought that you had to put the credit card in the CD slot.

I will be forever grateful to Mr. Rogers. I thought for sure that I was going to go down the bathtub drain. He assured me we kids couldn't. YAH! Love him forever.
