When I was four or five I used to sleep on my left side. Every night I would hear a thumping, drumming sound in my left ear and could never figure out what it is, bu,t after much theorizing, concluded the only possible answer is that giant dwarfs lived in my ears - dwarfs because they had to fit in, and giant because they had to step loud enough for me to hear them (little giants never occurred to me though). I think it took me a year or two before I figured out it was my heart I heard thumping.
I thought the couch in my grandmother was magical because whenever I would visit there and lay on the couch I slept instantly and then I started sleeping on the couch of my other relatives and my home also then started thinking all sofas had that same magic.

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.

When I was younger, I thought that when you fell asleep, you would go into this factory and a nice little old lady would send you through a portal and you would dream. Sometimes, instead of a nice little old lady, there would be a witch and she woud give you a nightmare. I just remember imagining all these beds filled with sleeping children on conveyor belts.

When I was younger my brother told me that if you had one of those dreams where you were falling, and you hit the ground and died in your dream, you really died. I always shocked myself awake during those dreams, until one night I dreamed I hit the ground, and woke up just fine.

When I was little, my parents would get me to go to bed by calling it "Mrs. White's Party" I can't believe I fell for that more than once; I believed that there was a Mrs. White (actually the sheets), and she had me spirited away to a party after I fell asleep. I believed that she waved a wand or something to make me forget there hadn't been a party.
I used to believe that when you were asleep, you were really dead. Every time I heard about something "awaking from the dead", I was like, "so?! I do it every morning!"
Before falling asleep, when I heard my blood pounding in my ears as I lay my head on my pillow, I thought it was the sound of an army of nightmares walking under my pillow.
When I was younger, I thought that when I went to bed at night, everyone else in my part of the world went to bed too, and every public place and road would be completely deserted.
