At the ripe age of 4 I was learning how to count, but didn't grasp the concept of "pairs" i.e "pair of eyes". So when a family aquaintance, at the old age of 10 tried to explain that people had "a pair of eyes," I knew she wasn't as smart as she thought she was because I could count now, and people (most importantly, myself included) actually had TWO eyes not one, so I believed quite firmly we all had "2 pairs of eyes" not one, as she so adamantly proclaimed.

My cousin showed me how he took out his eyes every night and put them in a little holder. Later I realized that these were actually his contact lenses.

In fact my daughter's belief was that I wasn't there when my eyes were closed. She used to peel my eyes open in the morning and shout "Daddy, Daddy, are you in"

I used to believe that when I closed my eyes, my eyeballs would roll over so that they were looking inside my head. I wondered why I could never see my brain, but decided that it was too dark in there to see anything. I later believed that I had the power to see things even with my eyes closed. Of course I eventually figured out that I was squinting, not actually looking through my eyelids.

I used to believe that if we cried too much, our body would run out of water. So whenever I cried a lot, I would hurry and drink a glass of water.

Being a little girl I always had an admiration for precious rocks and loved to collect them. I knew that gold was something very valuable and shiny. I used to believe that the bits of crud that gather in the eyes during the night were gold and every morning I checked my eyes to see if I had any. I used to keep them in a small bowl with my other rocks hidden were no one could find and steal “my gold”. I don’t know why I used to think that; but maybe it is because it had like a gold color and felt like a tiny rock.

I have two different colored eyes. (one brown and one light blue). When I was little I noticed that everyone had eyes that were both the same color so i aked my father why mine were different. He said it was becuase when I was born, one of my eyes didn't work,and that I would have to get it removed and then replaced with a different eye. But in my case, they didn't have any brown eyes left to put in my socket, so they used a blue one. I beileved this story until about three years ago (I'm 15 now). My friends have give me the nickname odd-eyed Sage because of it. Yikes...

When I was young I used to believe that if I looked down my eyeballs would fall out. Needless to say I got a lot of bruises walking in to things whilst looking at the sky!!

When I was younger, I realized that everyone has different color eyes. In the mist of my "realization", I thought that each person could only see that color. Ex: Blue eyes can only see the color blue, Green eyes can only see the color green and, so on. After some time of thinking about this, I remember looking around and thinking my eyes must be broken cause I could see every single color no matter where I was looking.

One day, at about the age of six, I was being a pirate, complete with construction paper or something satped over one eye. My parents saw me and warned me that I should take that off, because if I didn't, I would soon go BLIND in that eye! I was horrified, took the patch off immediately, and after that was always careful never to have one eye closed for too long. If I thought I had kept it closed for too long, my solution was to close the other one for the same amount of time, so that if I did go blind, at least I'd be evenly blind in both eyes. ~_^ It didn't occur to me until I was about thirteen that this wasn't true, and trust me, up until then I had been very careful to even out my eye closage.

My son was convinced for some time that people with the "crazy eyes" (the ones who wore contacts that were all white or had Xs on them, etc.)were actually removing their eyes and putting new ones in. He asked me several times how old he had to be before I would let him change his eyes!

When my mom would say that my eyes were bigger than my stomach I thought she meant it literally.
