I used to think that I was the only person in the world that could yawn. So one day in kindergarten I yawned and said to the kid next to me, "don't worry I'm not going to eat you, that's my superpower". Why I thought that was a superpower though is beyond me.

I used to think that the dots and things that I saw when I looked in a light for a long time was a sign that angels were around. It made me believe that God gave me this special gift that no on else had.

I used to believe that when you were tired from running you could turn an invisible wind up knob on your back to make you go faster. When I played soccer I frequently stopped to wind myself back up.

When I was little I used to think that when it rained it was God taking a shower, when it thundered he was bowling and when lightning flashed he turned on a light.

I used to believe when I was younger that I could fly. I would jump off of high things and pretend like I was flying. One time I climbed up a tree nearby a bee's nest, they stung me and I fell and had to go to the hospital for a concussion. I didn't think I could fly anymore...

thanks to benny 'the jet' rodriguez, i believed that you ran faster while running in slow motion. so fast you looked slow kinda thing. so i would take really large, slow steps simulating slow motion. when people told me to hurry up, i just laughed because i was so fast they thought i was behind them.

My parents used to joke that the dirt in my ears could grow fruit and I believed them. they would pretend to pull grapes and strawberries out of my ears. I would often ask them to check. When I told them that the kids in kindergarten didn't believe me they started pulling bigger and bigger fruit out of my ear to try to drop a hint. After the oranges and grapefruits didn't work, they just told me the truth. I was sooo mad and disappointed I shut myself in my room for the day.

I used to believe that I could trick gravity so that I could fly. I tried to casually walk off a playhouse roof with the belief that gravity would not be paying attention and that I would be able to walk on air. Sadly, the only result was a few bruises.

That dreams were memories of infancy coming back. So a dream where I was flying meant that I used to be able to fly. I remember being six and telling another kid, "When I was two I could fly, but I can't now because I'm heavier."
