I used to believe that "The Sandman" came every night, carrying a little bag of sand, shortly after I got into bed. He would wait outside the window (kindy floating like an angel). When I closed my eyes to go to sleep, he would come in and sprinkle some sand over my eyes, to help keep them shut and help me sleep better. The proof was when I woke up, there was still a little bit of the "sand" in the corners of my eyes.
Ok, when I was little, it was 1999, and I was reading a book no Dinosaurs. I asked my dad, "Daddy, will dinosaurs be in the year 2000?" Back then, I didn't know that dinosaurs have been extinct for more than 65 million years. He said, "Maybe. If there are, I'll make sure they don't hurt you." That night, continuing for about 3 weeks, I had a dream that I was a little girlscout selling Girlscout cookies, dinosaur shaped. When I opened the box, I dreamed that the cookies came to life, and terrorized my little made up world inside my head. After the three weeks, I believed that that was really what was going to happen in the year 2000. I never wanted it to come.
I used to believe when i was younger. that when i went to sleep at night i would float in my sleep to the dumpster and eat poop and that is why in the morning my breath smelled so bad. :( thats really off i know haha
I used to believe that when I kicked my blankets off in my sleep, a cannon ball came in through the window and shot them off.
When I was younger, I used to believe that when I slept and kept my palms open, a bird or something like that would "drop one" in there! I believed this because my older cousin told me a story back then of a little child who went to the bathroom and didnt have any toilet paper so he had to hold his poo in his hand. I was very crazy back then!
When I was younger, I used to believe that if I slept with my legs open just a little bit that bugs will crawl up "there".
I used to think that unless someone said, "Sweet dreams" to me before I went to bed, then I would wake up screaming from horrible nightmares - but I wasn't allowed to TELL people to say sweet dreams, because then it wouldn't count.
i used to believe that if you kept your mouth open when you slepp that spiders would drop in your mouth and would lay eggs in it. so i never leave my mouth open when i sleep still.
I'm deaf in one ear. Until I was 7 I believed that if I didn't sleep on my good ear, dinosaurs would eat me.
My father always told me that if I wore socks to bed I would grow hair inbetween my toes.
I thought one couldn't (shouldn't?) pull one's blanket up past one's belly-button. So, I was cold from my belly up, until my mom told me otherwise.
my brother told me when I was little, that sleeping on the side would make all your body's organs drop to that side and you would be all heavy on one side first then probably die.
for quite some time I forced myself to sleep on my back, and shreeked out of bed, when I woke on the side.. untill i found my mother asleep one morning on her side and woke her up in panic to save her live! my brother did get a little telling of. today, i still cannot fall asleep lying on the back.
When I was a little boy, I once had a nightmare: a kind of strange creature was hitting my belly. This bad dream woke me up, and I realized that my belly was kind of aching. I was terrified! Instead of thinking that the pain was the cause for the nightmare, I began to believe that dreams really happen and affect you in the real life!
When i was younger my pap pap used to tell me that if you went to sleep with your socks on your feet would fall off. I believed this till i was 13.
when we were lazy little kids me and my sisters would never bother to take our socks off to sleep, until we were told wearing socks to sleep makes you blind. to this day i refuse to wear socks to sleep. im 23.
I was not a normal kid. Normal kids think that a monster is unther their bed right? Well, somewhere I got this idea that my great-grandma Gert was living under my bed in her nightgown and housecoat and if I dangled my feet she would pull me under and stab me to death...I'm now 14 and I'm still very afraid of her.
When I was about three my godmother came to visit us from Africa for a few weeks. We didn't have an extra bed, so she opted to sleep on one of those bumpy, foam pads people sometimes put underneath their sheets.
I was completely amazed that she was able to sleep on spikes and assumed everyone from Africa did so. I refused to touch her bed.
i used to think that when i went to sleep gonzo from the muppets would suck me up through his nose and eat me
I used to think you absolutely HAD to have your eyes CLOSED for a full three hours before you could fall asleep. So I'd lie in bed and since I thought I couldn't open my eyes, they naturally started itching and such, but I wouldn't let myself open them. It was really tormenting. Finally I'd give in and open my eyes, then I'd freak out because now I had to hold my eyes closed for 3 hours again, and I thought I'd never get to sleep, and I'd end up running to my parents crying because I would never fall asleep.
I used to believe that when my mom said "Let's go to the Mattress Ball" (which meant for me to go to sleep) that I was really going to go to a Ball- and I insisted in putting on my finest attire... soon she said- "Tonight is pajama night at the Mattress Ball" !!!
