When I was ten, I started to notice the little bits of dust in the air floating everywhere. I was completly convinced I could see air.
My dad had this way of whistling that I never could master. He said he was whistling 'through his teeth.' I pictured him having these tiny holes in his teeth that I didn't have, and that's why he could whistle through his teeth and I could not.
When I was little my stepfather and I used to play karate but without actually knowing any karate. I thought I was so good because I could beat him up that I then went around telling the other kids I knew karate and could fight grown ups. So one day one of the kids decided to test my skills. He kicked my ass and I was shocked to learn that I didn't actually know karate.
When I was about 4, I had a dream that I was flying all over the house. The next day when I woke up, I kept jumping off of all the furniture trying to fly. I eventually concluded that the furniture was too low to jump off of, so i managed to climb onto the roof. We can all guess what happened next...the neighbors still think I'm tottally and completely nuts...i hang out on my roof now with my friends...they all peer out their windows just to make sure I don't have another trip to the hospital...oopsies
I used to believe that when I squinted at a light these light beams (think light sabers) were shooting out toward me and that I was the only person in history able to do that.
I used to believe that i could move things with my mind. I remember at a wedding i went to when i was 5 i was moving balloons with my mind. They were floating in the air and when i commanded that they come down they would. It was only later when i watched the wedding video that i realized that the balloons were coming down because they were near an air vent. lol
i used to belife that if i rubbed a magic snow globe then i would get powers beacuse 1 day i was lookibng in 2 it wen i was hungry and then my mum shouted dinner
I used to do this thing where I thought "I have to do _______ or the world will blow up." like "I have to knock on this door 3 times or the world will blow up." I don't know how that got started but I thought that if I stopped telling myself that the world would blow up and if I didn't do the stuff, the world would blow up.
Whenever my mom and I crossed the street together, she told me to hold her hand. When I asked her why, she told me that the people in the cars couldn't see me, meaning that I was short and therefore couldn't be seen. However, I thought that she meant that I had the amazing power of becoming invisible whenever I crossed the street.This meant that I was free to make weird faces at innocent people whenever I stepped off the curb. After I discovered that this wasn't true, I lived in fear of random people coming to get me for making faces at them.
I used to beleive that if you ran really fast before jumping into a pool you could walk on water. i spent hours just trying and trying till my mom told me it was impossible.
I had a recurring dream as a child that I could breathe through my ears under water, something like gills. I spent hours on the bottom of the swimming pool trying to prove it (obviously only a minute or two at a time!). I was very disappointed when I found I couldn't.
When I was little, I thought I could see through things b/c if I put a piece of paper in front of one eye, and looked at a book further away, I could see the outline of the paper, but I could still see the words in the book. I thought I was the only person with x-ray vision.
When i was in kindergarten my Dad told me that he could jump higher than the house. He was my Daddy so of course he wouldn't lie! I brought home all my friends from school one day so he could show us all just how high he could jump. Imagine my humiliation when he only jumped about 6", I told him he hadn't jumped higher than the house and he responded that he had because the house couldn't jump!
When I was 6, my friend told me that her dad could walk from planet to planet. I imagined her 70 year old dad making big steps from one planet to another and I could not understand how such a small man could do so. Obviously, I did not put much thought into it, but I became really afraid of my friend's dad from then on.
When I was 6 I became convinced that Grape flavored cough syrup (which was delicious to me) enabled me to have super powers. I convinced my 4 year old sister that this was true and over the course of four hours or so, we drank the whole bottle. Not long thereafter we were both puking our guts out and I got in trouble.
Once, while carrying a bowl of snacks and a glass of soda to my room, I believed I could actually drop the glass, reach into the bowl and grab a snack, eat the snack, then catch the glass and take a drink, everything perfectly unharmed. (I was 7.) I dropped the glass and took a snack and ate it. Then, I reached for the glass, but it was too late. The glass shattered upon the floor and I was grounded.
I used to belive if someone liftes you up, and you lift them at the same time, you will float in the air.
When I was younger I did gymnastics. One day I firmly believed that I could forward-roll my way up the stairs. I tried it, only to roll fast back down again and bash my head really hard on the wall at the bottom. Boy, did that hurt.
I used to beleive I could fly, I tried to show my mom by flying from my bed to the exposed light in my room. I touched the light and broke it, then I got electracuted and taken to the hospital to recover. I never tried to fly again, exept that time I jumped out of a tree to the sun...I broke my leg.
I used to think that, if you accidentally inhaled while you were blowing up a balloon, you would inflate just like it and start to float like in cartoons. Then when you exhaled you would fly around the room as you deflated.
