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.
My grandmother always lost her purse and her keys,so she would say "Oh those darn elves took my keys!" So whenever I lost something I would cry because I thought elves were stealing my stuff.
I used to belive that imprints of past experiences were visible on the walls of my grandparents upstairs apartment where we used to live. for example, plane crash victims faces could be seen in the cracks of the wall because maybe a plane crashed right where my grandparents house was now standing.
I used to believe that when someone at your house turned your TV off ALL the other TVs in the world would turn off! LOL i used to believe that about radios too!
When I was four, I used to think that the light inside a refrigerator would stay on even when the door was closed. One day my parents were cleaning out the fridge and left it completely empty, so I stood inside and closed the door. The light went off. So I got out and never did that again.
I believed that if I touched the gray "snooze" button on my parent's alarm clock that I would become a girl. I believed this because when I was about 4 years old I had asked my mom what the button was for, and that was the explanation she gave me. I was afraid to go near it for years.
when i was little i never used to shut the doors inside house so she tried to get me to do this buy saying you must been born on a field and i belifed her for ages
Water is in the walls, that's where it comes from, and if you put a hole in the wall, it will rush out and drown you. I think I got this from an episode of Incredible Hulk where they were stuck underground and water was filling up the room. Also, from Amityville Horror (I didn't know it was blood). My dad was about to drill a hole in the wall and I started crying and begging him not to do it because we would drown!
Whe i was rele lil, i used to think lotion was oceans. I really believed that mermaids took small bits of the ocean and turned it into this creamy stuff that smelled really gud, and put it in a bottle. all for you to have soft skin. i believed this til i was in the seventh grade.... i still get teased for this, and ppl think im way to blond. :]
