When I was, oh, 9 or 10, I first noticed that yawns were contagious. My logical mind figured out why: Yawns are invisible things, almost like spirits, that float around the world, and when they get the notion, they pry their way into someone's mouth. Then, they would find the next person they could, and pry into their mouth, and so on and so fourth. It took me until I was twelve for me to abandon that concept.

When I was little, my grandmother told me that if someone sneezed and you did not say "bless you", that their soul would leave their body. This haunted me and I would put my hands above my head whenever I sneezed to "catch my soul". Even as a superstitious teenager, whenever I sneezed and no one "blessed" me, I would raise my hands above my head non-chalantly!

i used to think that you could only sneeze so many times before you used them all up, then if you tried to sneeze your head would explode. i still hold my sneezes, just in case.

i used to think each person has a certain number of heart beats to use up before they die. I thought this was why your heart beats more slowly if you are fitter: you are saving more beats up for later!

When I was a kid I did not want to talk too much because I used to believe that dumb people were like that because they had already told everything they had to say in their life.

I used to believe that when you shut your eyes, that your eyes did actually roll back and there was something you could do to switch on a light back there and you would see clockwork working to move your eyes.I used to stand in front of the mirror with one eye shut and one eye open to let the light in through one eye so i could see the back of my other eye!

When I was little I believed that everyone saw different colors. Like, if I saw blue my friend saw purple [but she called it blue]...

Ex. The sky is blue.
But my blue might not look like someone elses blue. Maybe my blue is purple in their eyes. [It gets confusing when you think about it...]

When I young (like Kindergarten age) I would sometimes wake up in the middle of the night, and, when I got out of bed to walk around, my feet were "asleep." I thought that the pain from walking on them when I got out of bed was the result of God punnishing me for getting out of bed... I thought God was trying to make me feel like I was stepping on nails!
