My dad got the most post in our house (mainly bills of course!) and it all came in those plain white envelopes with the plastic window so you could see the printed address. I therefore believed all post I sent got changed into those envelopes at the post office, so refused to use a letter writing set with pictures on the envelopes when I wrote to my grandma in Australia.

When I was little i was at the babysitters house and standing on the patio looking at the grass, for some reason i said it looked like the sea. So they all told me it was and that there were sharks in it. Being about 3 years old, i believed them and didnt touch the grass for months.

I used to believe that matches would spontaneously burst into flames if I or any other kid touched them. They were these scary things that only adults held the power to control. That Smokey the Bear had me scared.

I used to believe that a person could fall into shadows. There was one really scary shadow at my grandma's house that extended across the sidewalk when it got dark out and the porch light went on. I had to very carefully jump over it everytime I left her house, and I didn't dare try to cross it if I was alone.

When I was young, I used to think that a "problem" was an actual, physical object. Whenever my parents said something along the lines of "we have a problem", I would searching around the house for the problem so I could throw it away. :)

I used to think all grown ups had a button they pressed when kids werent there that changed the whole
House onto a party with colored lights and music. I always wondered why I never woke up to the loud music

My parents had me convinced that in every garage there was a light switch for the sun, and that once a week they had to go out in the garage and turn off the sun at night. They even let me do it sometimes.

I used to believe that, after going to bed with cold sheets and blankets, my mom would go into another room and turn a knob to slowly heat up my bedcovers. I remember feeling so relieved when they began to get warm.

When I was about five, my sister would tell me that the funky noises coming from behind the big chest freezer was a valasa-raptor from Jurassic Park. I would have to make the "Caoo-Caooing" noises it made in the movie to fool it every time i walked by.

In the old house where I grew up there was pink insulation on the attic floor between the beams. My parents always told me not to step on it or I would fall through the ceiling. I thought it contained some sort of magic power to propel me upwards through the roof. I was disappointed to learn years later that they'd meant the ceiling of the floor beneath me!

When I was about 4 or 5 my mom told me not to break the coffee table because "a lot of money went into that". Of course being a small child I tried to break it open so I could get the money out!
