I used to think that in the middle of the night you died and in the morning you came back to life.
When I was 5-7 years old, I used to think that when I went to sleep the t.v. and VCR were talking to me. How strange I was!
I used to belive that goats were watching me in the window at night when I went to bed. After I went to sleep, they would jump in my window and puppets would dance around my room while the goats ate my socks and that is why I could never find the matches to any of my socks.
When I was little I had this idea that if I dream about people maybe someone was dreaming of me and everything I was doing was just a part of their dream. I was terrified that the person would wake up and I would disappear.
When my sister was little she spent ages getting ready for bed every night. she'd put on make up and perfume. when I asked why she said "I want to look my best in case any of the boys in my class dream about me"!
I believed when we were sleeping that we were dead
I used to believe that if I didn't sleep on my back, then wicked elves would climb onto my bottom. I remember lying there imagining them with ladders and catapults climbing onto me. When I was about 9, I was convinced I was a vampire and I made a cardboard coffin and slept in it.
I used to believe that the little bit of gunk in the corner of your eyes (or as my mom used to call it, sleep) would glow in the dark, I guess because it kind of looks the same color as the glow in the dark stuff. So I tried collecting it for a couple of days. I didn't work.
As I would lie in bed waiting to get to sleep, I could hear my pulse / heartbeat. Quite normal. But I didn't understand that it was my pulse and concocted the fiction that the sound was actually footsteps. Specifically, the footsteps of a man (moustached, wearing a safari outfit) who was walking his way from Africa to my house and who would kill me when he got there. Fortunately, I figured that Africa was so far away it'd take him a couple of years to get to me. I felt safe knowing that I had at least a couple of years to live (*rolls eyes*).
When i was about 5 my mum always told me that the sand man was gunna come and put me to sleep by putting sand in my eyes. Well i got so scared i slept witha bandana wraped over my head.
I thought that there was a really tiny who lived in my brain named Peg who decides what I'm going to dream. That Peg was awsome.
I used to believe that when you slept, you didn't breathe. I would pretend to be asleep and hold my breath as long as I could. I used to wish so hard that I could hold my breath as long as I could when I was asleep.
i used to believe that i always slept with my eyes open. I always used to tell my mom before i went to bed that i WASN'T going to close my eyes. I guess i thought i was special!! LOL!!! :o)
I used to believe that if you kept your eyes shut tight long enough, you would fall asleep before anyone else, and if you opened your eyes even a crack before you fell asleep, you'd have to start all over again...
When I was trying to get to sleep years ago I would think that if I opened my eyes there would be pirates all around me ready to shot me.
When I was trying to get to sleep when I was younger I used to think that if I yawned that 3 rats would come and pour rat poisin down my throat and I would die.
You dont breath while your sleeping!
I used to believe that u culdn't go to sleep unless you had sleep in ur eyes, and if I woke up and wanted to sleep I was too afraid of rubbing the sleep outta my eyes in case I couldn't get back to sleep
I had a dream that i was in my primary skool and these flying tin cans with legs and arms and faces where trying to get me. they were called german measles. For years after that i cudnt sleep with my back to the room coz i beleived that the german measles were goin to get me. I was always saying to my bro "look theres german measles behind you!" I really beleived they were real. But not anymore.thank god for that
When I was 6 or 7, I used to think that time sped up when I was asleep. I didn't like bedtime, but I though that the sooner I went to sleep, the sooner I could get up again.
