When I was a child, I found a blood vessel in my eye that was shaped like the letter "M". Since my first name starts with M, this caused me to believe that everybody had blood vessels in their eyes shaped like the first letter of their names.
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.
When I first overheard my brother talking about 20/20 vision I asked what it was and my mom said it's perfect vision. I thought this meant no matter how dark it was or even if your eyes were damaged you could see perfectly.
When I was younger I believed that even though everyone had eyes, everyone saw things differently. For example, I can recognize my mom; but if I were to have an eye transplant, I would not recognize her because she would look differently than how I saw her with my original eyes.
I was convinced that I was the only person in the world who couldn't move their eyes. I'd see everyone else moving their eyes and get really jealous. I used to try practice in the mirror but I could never tell because I couldn't see my eyes when I looked away... hmmm....
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.
When my mom would say that my eyes were bigger than my stomach I thought she meant it literally.
When I was little, we took a bus ride and I noticed an overweight man. I turned to my mom and told her I knew what "hangover" meant... it was when your stomach hanged over your belt.
When I was in like yr 1 was this girl who had a lazy eye and every day she had to wear a patch for a few hours to correct it. I was convinced her parents were pirates and refused to go to her birthday parties untill yr 3.
When I was about 8 years old, my brother (who is older than me by 18 months) told me that if I cut off my eyelashes, my eyelids would roll back into my head and I could never close my eyes again. Of course, I believed him.. the little liar..
when i was younger i thought that you couldnt look at something with out pointing your head directly in that direction. one day i was bored so i tried to prove that wrong. when i noticed i moved my eyes with out turning my head i ran around the house yelling "i can move my eyes!!". i was shocked when my parents wern't impressed.
When my little brother came home from the hospital, his eyes were closed and I thought he had no eyes. (Iguess it was the first time I saw anyone with his or her eyes closed.)
One time my mom said somone was blind and I asked "why don't they just take the blind off?" Apparently I confused blind and blindfold!
I used to believe, that if you lost all of your eyelashes, you wouldn't be able to blink your eyes. This stemmed from learning that fish did not have eyelashes, and do not blink.
When I was in kindergarten my teacher told us that if we sneezed with our eyes open they would come out of our head.
I used to be completely convinced that the sleep in your eyes was actually what made you go to sleep. So whenever I woke up in the morning and wanted to go to sleep, I made sure I never rubbed the sleep out my eyes so I could get back to sleep.
my mum used to say if i lied my eyes would change colour...when i lied i would shut my eyes
When I was four or five, I enjoyed focusing and unfocusing my eyes. Not crossing them, just making things blurry. I thought people could see when I was doing this, and would get mad if they caught me. Once, I even sat my parents down and said "Ok. I have a confession. I can do this." They were very confused.
I used to think (thanks to Walt Disney) that the only difference between boys and girls was that the girls have eyelashes. See Daisy and Donald.
If you hold your finger a few inches from your eyes, at some point of focusing you see double. When I was little I thought I was seeing through my fingers and that I was slowly turning invisible.
