I used to believe that when i heard on tv that people were addicted to painkillers, that they were addicted to tylenol. i mean thats what i used to kill my pain when i was little.
I used to believe that there was a purple monster living behind the refrigerator!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I used to think that the vacuum cleaner performed the same function as the lawnmower. They both made lots of noise, and something happened underneath where I couldn't see, and both were used weekly on all the surfaces I thought of as 'the ground'. I noticed that the carpet never seemed to really need a trim though, and I figured it just needed to be watered more often... Yes, I tried to water it, regularly... until I got caught, and it was explained to me that carpet was not alive.
when i was little we had a vent in our kitchen floor when i asked my dad what it was he said it was a heat duct (i heard duck) and that heat duck monsters lived down there and would pull me down if i got to close. for the longest time i wouldnt even go near there..
My mother did this when she was young.
She was doing the dishes and complaining to her father that she couldn't get a pan clean, so he told her to put a little elbow grease into it. She in turn searched the cupboards for the elbow grease can while he laughed his but off. she had no idea it wasn't a cleaning product
we had a good few people who would call our house and we would just let the answer machine get it. i always thought that they could hear me, why not i could hear them, so i would stand completely still and not say a word every time the answer machine got it. (sometimes i still do)
My brother was vacume cleaning cuz my mom made him. And so he told me that if I stepped too close to him while he was vacuming, he would vacume my feet up. Now when I vacume, I make sure to be at least 1 foot away from it.(Ha ha. Foot)
Once I thought these two teenagers who used to wash my mums car lived in our attic. Hahaha!
i used to belive that if you put your head in a microwave when it was on it would change to the shape of whatever was in there!
When i was 5, i used to be close the shutters very fast because i believed a man would arrive and would frighten me...^^
When i was five i used to belive there are a gost in my bedroom and in my house.
when i was younger, me and my brother would alwaysss play Twister (the game when u spin the hand thing and you have to put ur foot/hand on the differnet colors) and he would always say that if i cheated or if i did something wrong it would somehow push one of the colors(i thought they were buttons!) and it would open you and i would fall down into a pit or something =[
I kind of jumped to a conclusion on this one, but until I was 8, this is what i though: Do you know those sattelite and phone towers with the blinking red lights? I used to think they were missiles and thats why they put the fences around them. I moved to a house that was near one when I was 7 and i cried because my room was the closest to the tower, I thought it would explode and blow up my room.
When I was really young I would get mad at anything that I ran into. If I ran into a wall or piece of furniture, I'd kick it back, as if it was it's fault, not mine. I would say something like "the wall hit me!" Or "stupid wall!" The habit got passed on to my friend and she once stuck her tongue out at a bar above the slide that she bumped into.
i have dreams that seem very real to me. when i was young i was having a conversation with my mom and brother it was one of those "hey do you remember when...." conversations.. everyone laughed at me when i asked "Hey do you remember when the goodyear blimp crashed into our willow tree?~!?" i was crushed when they told me it didnt happen
Me and my friend used to always play on my swing set. i thought that if i stood ontop of the slide and whispered into the big bolt ontop of the pole beside it my friend could here me by listening to the bolt beside the swing
i used to belive that if i jumped off a house roof , gravity would invert and i would fall in to the sky.
i never did.
good thing man. good thing.
i was 5 now 19
When I was 8, my uncle used to tell me that if I pressed the stop button on the television's remote, the television would explode. I didnt touch that remote until I was 12 in fear of blowing up the neighborhood.
Whe I was little I had a T.V in my room because my mom would watch it with me sometimes and when I was asleep with a night light and I thought that the light shining from the night light on to the T.V was the "T.v light" and I was soo scared of it. I thought it would popout and hopp down the hallway to my parents room and eat them.
up until i was about 7 i used to believe that there was an evil old man who lived in all of the dark parts of my house and if i went into a room without turning on the lights, he'd tie me up and feed me to his pet cockroaches. i'm 13 now and i don't believe in him anymore, but i still fear being eaten by cockroaches
