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*).

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 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 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.

Up until age eight, I thought that nightmares always took place in your room next to your bed. One time I was talking to my mother and my friend and I prefaced a thought with, "You know how nightmares always appear on the side of your bed?" and they both looked at me like I was insane.

i used to believe that every time i closed my eyes, i would enter another dimension where aliens looked exactly like people i knew. i was really terrified of sleeping.

When I was little I read a book about a boy who slept with his head on the wrong side of the bed. His mum told him if he did that again he would turn into an ink splodge. At the end of the story he did it again and he turned into an ink splodge and his mum mopped him up before he could say anything.
I was so scared by this story that it was a few years before I dared sleep with my head on the wrong side of the bed!!

My dad snores, but my mom doesn't, so when I was little I thought only men snored. So one day at school I was talking with a friend about our parents, and she said that her mother snored. I replied in shock "Your mom's a MAN?"
