When I was younger I used to believe that when I hit an object they would feel pain like they were living.

When I was a little girl, I used to think that my parents left me alone when I slept and they made audio-recording with thier voices so that I think that they were still in our house. So every evening I looked behind the door to check if my parents were still there. I understood the truth when I saw that every evening they were still there and I felt stupid.

I believed in less strange things, for example in the bogeyman and also that when it rained I couldn't look in the mirror things that I would say simple

"Eu acreditava em coisas menos estranhas, por exemplo no bicho-papão e também que quando chovia eu não conseguia olhar no espelho coisas que eu diria simples

When I was a child, I used to believe that if you mixed shampoo and salt, you could create a new living creature. Now I realise it's slime.

When I was young I saw all those colorful bottles in the kitchen sink cabinet and being the curious toddler I was, I wanted to drink them. My parents kept saying you can't drink them they're poison. I guessed they were some kind of "grown-up" drink like alcohol or beer because they weren't for kids. I also thought my parents secretly drank them when I wasn't looking.

Due to cartoons I used to believe that pretty much all kids had treehouses in their backyards, and I felt left out that our family didn't have one. Guess I never noticed that treehouses in real life aren't anywhere near as common as they are in cartoons!

when i was a child, i used to believe that at the bottom of the pool was Atlantis like in the little mermaid movie. I was trying to press the tiles in case it came out of nowhere.

You know how, at least in the UK and Ireland, flammable objects such as clothes and books have labels reading "Keep Away From Fire"? Well, when I was little, I thought Keep Away From Fire was a brand and everything with the label was connected in some way. I think I first saw it on another kid's Spider-Man costume, so I wondered how Spider-Man fit in to the brand.

I used to believe that when I hit some objects they suffered like a living being and so I had to be kind with them.

I used to think that when you saw a children's stairgate in somebody's house, it meant there was something fun upstairs, like a playground or toyshop, and was rather disappointed to realize that it was just to prevent toddlers from falling down the stairs, although I must have used one myself, although I don't remember!

I used to think the smell of hoovering was sort of like makeup or talcum powder, although it's really just the dust.

I was staying at my grandparents' place and their spare bedroom has a large window leading to a huge (like the size of a room) abandoned aviary.
Well, I woke up in the night, looked up, and saw my reflection in the window. Being half asleep, I thought it was another person and shouted, "Ah! There's a girl in the aviary!".

I used to think that the bath support rail in my great gran's flat was some sort of emergency slide rail, and if she was suddenly hurt or even dead, an air ambulance would land on the roof and the paramedic team would slide through the ceiling, like with those sliding polls that you get in playgrounds!

I used to think that when you went in a lift, the doors would go up and down with the lift inside, and never understood why they were still there when the person was inside.

I used to think, before going abroad for the first time, when I was 9 and went to Portugal, that staying in holiday apartments would be like staying in my great gran's flat. (:
