I thought snot was made by a little person who lived in my sinuses, and I thought that if I could only get that person out of my nose, then I wouldn't have to blow my nose anymore.

Similarly, I thought saliva was made in a cauldron by a sinister guy with a deep voice who lived in a creepy room behind my saliva duct. I thought that he'd occasionally dip his spoon into the cauldron and taste it, like you do when you make soup, which gave me the creeps.

I used to believe I could make myself grow taller by hitting myself in the jaw, and I could shrink by hitting myself on the top of the head.

When I was little, I used to belive that I could be a better football player If, at school, I drunk at the same fountain as one of classmates that played football and were good at it. One day I tried, and I dribbled one of the best mates playing football and then scored a goal. I thought my belief was real, actually not, I know I was just lucky.

There's an episode of "Bear in the Big Blue House", where Bear says that you should go to the bathroom even if you're in the middle of doing something.

I took that a bit too literally, and thought that it meant that if you were in the middle of doing something, you *had* to go to the bathroom.

So, whenever I set out to do something, I'd pause and go to the bathroom whenever I was halfway through, regardless of whether nature was actually calling.

When I was a child, I used to believe that when I had new sneakers, I could run faster. One day I told my parents that I wanted a new pair because I had heard that crazy story and when my parents bought me a new pair, I tried and I really felt I could do it ):

When I was a child I believe that if you sleep with your hands in your chest, you have bad dreams.
