I was convinced for several years that my mom could read my mind. The notion terrified me, especially during Church. I neared hysterics a few times when I couldn't rid my mind of a thought that I thought particularly displeasing, and in every silence I read disgust and condemnation. Bad times.
I use to believe I controlled the wind with my mind.
i used to believe that if i tryed hard enough i could turn in to a pather because i read a book about a boy who turned in to a tiger! i lay for hours on my bed scrunched up in the feetil position wishing as hard as i could, but to no avail.
i have an older brother and an older sister, everytime we played hide and seek i thought i was SOO clever. so, i would stick up my pointer finger (as if i was point to the ceiling) put it in the center of my ace, and shut my eyes. i thought "if i can't see them they can't see me!" i was always caught first! i didn't realize why until i was 7!
I used to believe that when my sister played the drums, she could make it rain
When I was about 7 or 8, I made a 'Magic potion' that would give me super powers. Basically, I went into every room in the house and poured in a little bit of everything I could find that was liquid or slimy and mixed it all up in my little plastic cup.
My last stop was the bathroom, as I was mixing in the shaving cream, shampoo, liquid soap, toothpaste, and deodorant, I heard my parents calling me. I was afraid they would take it away and give themselves superpowers so that they could take over the world, so I gave the ultimate sacrifice for the good of all mankind... I dumped it all in the toilet and flushed it.
Now that I think about it, I could have drank some of it and THEN flushed it down the toilet. Since i'm still alive, you can tell that I didn't think of that.
I used to believe that if I stood in a wash tub and pulled hard enough on the handles I could make myself fly. Must have dreamed it or something.
When i was little, my mom would make me go to bed when i didn't want to. So i thought "hey! if i cover up with a blanket and crawl very slowly out of my room she wont see me!"
one time i decided to make a "potion" in the sink and I put tons of soap and shampoo and other wierd stuff in it. when I was done with my "potion", i pulled the plug in the sink. afterward i cried endlessly for days because i thought that maybe a homeless person would be thirsty and put their mouth under the drain to drink water and they would get my "potion" and die from poisoning.
i used to believe that one day i would develop laser-ray eyesight and i would use my laser beam to cut down all the trees to the same height... i would imagine this riding in car rides, zipping the tops off trees with my eyes.
My whole family goes to a bunch of cottages with eachother every year. there is only five of us who are over the age of ten, the other twelve of us are eight or younger. One day my cousin philip and I decided it would be fun to, trick the younger kids into thinking he could control the weather. We figured out what way the wind was blowing, then got the younger ones. I was standing so the wind would hit me about five seconds before it would hit him, so I'd wave to him when I felt the wind, and he'd start slowly raising his arms. As he did that, the wind would pick up. That was three years ago, and these kids who saw him do that still say "Mommy! look, it's the boy who controld the wind!"
I used to believe that if someone touched you, they could know what you are thinking.
Me and My brother used to believe that we could fly like Peter Pan, I'm sure everyone has, but we thought differently. My brother tried jumping off the couch with his so called "HAPPY THOUGHT" and fell an hit the floor so we assumed that he flew 2 seconds that a happier thought mught let us fly longer. After the stair trial run we didn't believe anymore.
I used to believe that when I was about eight or nine years old, that when bouncing on a bed I could most defiantly hover, but certainly could not fly.
A boy in my class made his little brother, then being three years old, believe he could fly. They were standing on their veranda, about three meters high, when he said "You can fly. Everyone can fly. Just jump, and you'll see!" And he jumped.
When I was about three or four years old, I believed I could shoot laser with my eyes. I would close my eyes, and squeeze them really close togehter. You know when you see that white flashing before your eyes? That was my laser. The worst is that my dad played along with me, so for years I thought I could shoot laser. I can't remember when I stopped believing - actually I just remembered some months ago :)
I used to believe that if I closed my eyes no one could see me, and I used to love butter. So I would go to the fridge, close my eyes, and eat butter. For some reason I would ussually get away with it, but I`m guessing thats because my parents could see the entertainment vallue in it, not because I was invicible.I also tried the same when I had cut the whiskers off my cat, I didn`t get away with that one, thats when I lost all faith in the system.
I used to believe...If you ate sunflower seeds you could read somebody's mind...LOL
I used to believe there was some way to shrink yourself, and I had spent days trying to think of how I'd live normally. I made plans about using broken bits of pencil lead to write (I was in elementary school, obviously), wearing my Kelly dolls' clothes, and how I'd have to move into the hall closet so I wouldn't have to run all the way across my bedroom floor to get around. Also, the stairs would be an adventure every now and then, but mostly my mom would carry be back and forth. I even remember how I was worried about getting married and having kids in this state.
When I found out there was no way for me to become doll-sized, I actually cried. I had such high hopes...
i used to believe that i could fly like mary poppins'. I would get my umbrella, and jump into the ditch, and see if i could float...in my heart i could.
