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.

i used to believe that depending on your eye color, you saw things in a different tint... i asked my grandma what color she saw the sky and when it was the same i realized i was wrong.

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!

As a child I always wondered why I could see everyone else's face and not mine.

My sister was told at a young age that if you crossed your eyes and someone hit you on the back, that they’d stay that way. Fast forward fifteen years at her high school graduation party when she found out that my mom was pulling her leg. Her friends still tease her about that. (So do I!)

I used to believe that every person saw colour completely differently. So, what looked like yellow to me actually looked like purple to someone else.
I really wanted to know about the colours that other people could see. I was kind of obsessed.

When I was in elementary school I read a story about making wishes on loose eyelashes. I wanted to make lots of wishes so I pulled out my eyelashes so I could use them to make wishes. My mom had to take me to the doctor because I got little scabs on my eyelids from pulling my eyelashes out.

I used to think that, if I stared at the sun, I wouldn't have to squint when I got older, so I wouldn't buy wrinkle creams for my face. I thought that eye doctors just wanted you to think that starring at the sun would damage your eyes.

I used to believe that when my mom removed her glasses she was totally blind. Imagine my horror each time she took them off while driving and asked me to clean them! My hands never moved so fast!

Whenever i saw the shows with people crying, i notiuced that womens tears always dried black. It took me a while to understand that it was their mascara and not their actual ears.
