when i was about 4 or 5, my family told me that opening the door to the coal cellar it would cause an explosion... i believed it and stayed away, although i'd have LOVED to go in. Later on I realised they only said that to keep me from playing in there and making a huge black mess.
When my mom would see me doing something dangerous or something that could end up badly, like leaning on open window or trying to get knife, she would tell me a story of a little girl who did the exactly same thing as me, and it would always end up badly.
I would always pity that little girl for all the hurtful things she experienced so far and wonder how she always ends up alive
I used to think that the stars were going to shoot laser beams at me if I passes too close to the window. My mom could'n understand why on some nights, when the stars looked 'scary" I huddled in my armchair and would not pass the window.
When I was around 8 I had to beliefs. one of them was that I was afraid to leave my hand off the bed because I had just heard the "humans can lick too." story and still today I am scared of that and for a while I couldn't take showers unless my sister had one first because I saw the movie "Cabin Fever" and thought my skin would start desolving from a flesh eating virus.
I used to believe that doorways were evil. And there was one corner at the end of the hallway that was even more viscious. Each doorway in my house had it's own horrible monster. I was particualarly scared of the white fluffball and the bald phantom man. The corner at the end of the hallway was the worse. There was a dead girl with a green face and black and yellow eyes that would peak around, and I would wake up screaming because I was so little that if I dreamt or saw the corner it looked real to me. Now when I think about it, it is kind of embarrassing.
When I was very young, I believed that houses were carved out of one gigantic block of wood.
One time our house was robbed, and my birth certificate was stolen. As a result, I believed that the Hamburgler was going to come through the window at night and steal my birth. The only protection was to make a nest out of blankets and have my hair in a braid. If I did that, the Hamburgler wouldn't bother me.
I was nice enough to perform this little service for my sister, too, while she was too young to braid her own hair.
I used to believe that the remote control could control all the things in my house, including my dog.
When I was younger I used to think that when people moved (to a new house), both homeowners just switched houses with each other.
The wallpaper in my room as a child had scenes of alittle boy & alittle girl in a garden. The girl was using a hoe & the boy was pushing a wheelbarrow. During the day they were stationary, but at night they moved about doing their chores. I thought everyone's wallpaper did this!
I've grown up watching scary movies. And since I was a kid whether it was the bathroom, in my closet.. outside the window that there was someone waiting to kill me. Sad thing Im 19 and still get terrifide. Ha!
This is kind of embarrassing because this happened not too long ago. (I'm 16!) I was at my aunt's house, and while browsing the fridge, I noticed the little light in there. The light in my fridge doesn't work anymore, but even when it did, I don't think I ever saw it.
I thought "its in the fridge, so it must be cold," and decided to touch it.
It wasn't cold. :x
Back when I was about 8 or 9, I thought that if I listened hard enough, I could hear my parents through the vents. I still try whisper to my family using them.
i probably fell asleep, and i dreamt a lion in my room, everything was realistic in dream so i haven`t realize when i woke up, so i just started running to tell my mom that there is a lion in the room. i believed for many years later that the lion was really there.
when you sit by a fire it can dry up you bone marrow
when i was younger, i liked to go around barefoot. then my mom told me if i keep going around barefoot, i would get worms in my feet. then she pointed to the veins in my feet and i totally thought i had worms.
Growing up, there was a crawl space above our house with nothing in it. We never stored anything up there, there was no light, it was just a tiny, dusty space above the house that nobody ever went in. When I first discovered that we had a crawl space, I asked my mom why it was that we didn't use it and she gave me a vague, "I don't know, we just don't." I took this to mean that she was concealing some deep dark secret and after much thinking and staring up at the little square in the hall ceiling which lead to the crawl space, concluded that my parents had a fourth child that they never told my sisters and I about -- they simply hid him in the crawl space, only giving him food when their other children were asleep. Somehow I decided that his name was Hugo and would occasionally use the broom handle to open the little crawl space door and announce to "Hugo" that I knew the truth about him.
One of my friends used to believe that when children are grounded they get locked in their room and a toilet grew in the room.
I used to believe my attic was a black hole because my mother would alway tell me to be careful around it, and my siblings house told stories about things getting stuck up there. When I was little I used to run really fast alongt the edge of the hallway so i woudnt get sucked up!
When I was a little girl, our water heater only gave us about 10 min worth of hot water to take a shower/bath. Well one time I was taking a shower and the hot water ran out. I was really upset because I wasn't finished. So my logic was if hot water turned cold, the cold water must turn hot. So I sat in the tub with the cold water running. I can assure you that it never got hot, not even remotly warm. I was all pruned up and my lips were blue by the time I figured that out.
