Since I would always hear that getting a good nights sleep would make you grow, I thought that little elves would come into your room while sleeping, chop off you foot, and snap in another piece of ankle liek a Lego. It wasn't until later that I realized that if this was true people would have very long ankles.

At age 5 I really wanted a bow and arrow set, but my Mom said I was too young. I used to dream I was a Pilgrim in a log cabin, being attacked by Indians. When they left I would run outside and pick up all the arrows and put them under my bed. When I awoke, I would jump out of bed and look underneath the bed for the arrows I had collected during the dream. I was so disappointed to find nothing. I did this for many nights, knowing someday it would work.

I used to think if you slept on your right side(the side in which I thought your heart was)you would crush your heart during the night so I would always sleep on my left side, little did I know your heart was on your left when I found out I was horrified that I came so close to death so many times, I could barely sleep anymore unless i was on my back

As a child i lived in a very hot country , and so during the summer , my mom would make me and my sister have afternoon naps! i was a very hyper child ...and always put up a fight when sleeping time came...In Tehran ( the city i was living in) trucks go through streets selling salt during the afternoon and screaming namakee namakee ( salt salt) ..and so to scare me ...my mom told me that if i didn't sleep agha namakee ( mr. salt) would come and take me away ...and then would turn me into salt and sell me ! I slept every day from that day on ( or acted as though i did) ... and every time i saw salt ... looked at it closely to see if i could see any children ! i actually came face to face with mr.salt once ... i peed myself!

When I was in Kindergarden I used to believe that when you slept you didn't breathe, so when we would have nap time I would lay down and hold my breathe for as long as I could so It would look like I was asleep. I have no idea why I thought this..lol.

While trying to sleep I would hear a constant "shoo shoo shoo..." type noise in my ear as my head was against the pillow. I didn't know I was just hearing my own heartbeat in my pressed ear, so I was under the impression that some type of train was coming to take me to my dreams. I even tried to inquire about this "dream train" with my Mom, but she couldn't figure out what I was trying to explain!

I used to lie awake in the night worrying whether to sleep with my mouth open or closed. I believed if I left my mouth open, a man would come in through the window and pour poison into it (and I would die). I also worried that if I left it closed I would suffocate. I would lie in my, until I got to sleep, opening and closing my mouth.

when I was nine I went to see my dad's uncle in Germany.I had to make his grandson ( he was 5 ) to go to sleep, but he wouldn't listen to me . The next day I put on my mom's high-heeled shoes and told him I had grown, because I slept and that he would remain small. He believed me and started crying! CONCLUSION: REVENGE IS SWEET!

When I was little, I used to be scared of the dark. So I used to go to sleep with a little lamp on. Later, when I was asleep, my parents would switch it off. I used to wake up in the middle of the night and yell for my mum or dad. They would tell me there had been a power cut and that was why it was dark. When I looked out of the window "to see the men fixing the street lights" they were always too far away to see. Hmm...

I Used to belive that when I slept my goobers would crawl out of my nose and into my eyes but one night I was crying because I was afraid that they were going to eat my eyeballs that I found out that was a whole bunch of nonsense.

When I was 5 or so, my dad used to tell me that if I wasn't asleep by midnight, I would turn into a pumpkin. I was so scared because I didn't know he was joking.

When I was four, I discovered that I didn't breath through my mouth when I was sleeping (you must realize that back then I didn't know that I could breath through my nose). So every night for the next week or so, when I got into bed I'd close my eyes and hold my breath in a fail attempt to fall asleep. The result: Every night I nearly suffocated myself trying to sleep.
Do not try this at home.

I used to think that when people were born, they immediatley fell sound asleep upon arriving in their home, and that the life you're living now is really a dream that you're REAL self--the baby--is having. For instance, if your eight years old, you're really a baby that's been asleep for eight hours having a very elaborate dream. When you died, your baby self woke up and continuted on with life, meaning you actually lived twice. I knew for sure I was just asleep, because when you woke up, you remembered your whole life as a dream. I had yet to wake up and remember my life as a dream.

When I have a bad dream about bugs, I wake up and think that the bugs are crawling around in my bed. Then I can not fall asleep, and I crumble into a ball to keep from the bugs.
