when I was small, I lived with my grandparents and cousins. I often wondered how my grandpa became bald, and when I asked him he told me that it all just fell out in a heap one day, and explained that this happens to all males. I utterly belived him and until i was about 12, I followed my oldest cousin ray around with a camera, hoping to get a picture of that moment since he always picked on me.
i used to believe that moustaches grew directly out of a mans nose,and that beards were sort of combed nasal hair .gerald of wales.
My father had gone bald years before I was born. We had a picture of him as a young man in the Navy, and he had his hair clipped really short. I thought they shaved his head for the navy, and it never grew back.
When younger I hand botom lenght hair that I hated having brushed morning and night, My aunt who also had long hair told me there was a button on the back of her neck which took here hair off, but could I find that button!! I was 15 before I found out the truth.
my uncle was hurt in an accident when he was a kid, and now there's no hair where he had to have surgery on his head. until i was about 14 i believed his story of how he made a go-cart that was so fast it blew all his hair off.
When I was around 10 I wanted to curl my hair, so I searched my mothers room for hair mousse. The only kind of mousse I could find was hair removing mousse. I just asumed that once it was mousse it would curl my hair so I put the whole bottle in my hair. Lets just say I will never make that mistake again.
When I was little, I used to believe moustaches were nose hair that had grown to long and started comming out of a person's nose.
When my Dad got married he was already bald. His twin brother was also bald, so we always knew them bald. i used to ask them what happened and they told me that on a beautiful sunny day while they were suntanning, their mother - my grandmother was mowing the grass and accidentally chopped off the hair on top of their haid and it never grew back! We beleived it for many years.
As a child, on asking my dad why I could see his bald crown he replied that it was because he was "so tall that he was growing through his hair". I really believed that for a long time!
When I was a kid, I believed that when you got old your hair not only turned white or gray but also automatically became short and puffy, because that was how the older women in my family wore theirs.
I used to think that I had rats living in my hair because when my dad used to brush it when it got tangled, he would always comment that it was like a rats nest and would make squeaking sounds of the "rats" escaping from the brush. Because my back was turned to him, I never doubted it for a second!
Until I was like 15, I thought that if you worked out and got really muscular, all your body hair would fall off, because every well-built person I ever saw had no body hair. It never occured to me that they waxed/shaved it off.
I used to think that all men who had mustaches were evil...including my uncle. To this day, I still don't like my uncle very much...
When my mother was little, she was short-sighted but hadn't been diagnosed as such yet, so she didn't yet have glasses ... this impediment meant that, since nearly all women had perms when she was a child, she believed that all grown-up women had hair which grew in loops and back into their heads and dreaded the day when her own would do the same because it would be harder to brush ...
When I was in about 6th grade, it was 'cool' to have a little bit of your hair running into the corner of your mouth. Lots of girls stopped when the rumor started going around that it would give you worms. I don't know which was dorkier - thinking it was cool, believing the worm theory, or the pitiful girls whose hair was so short that they actually had to distort their mouths to get it to stretch that far - like me. =8O
I used to think that doing a haircut is easy, and letting a trained hairdresser do it is simply a social ritual. The truth revealed when I tried to cut my little sister's hair.
When we were kids, my older sister and I would take our bath together. And our favorite game was to "shave" foam off our backs with our dad's razor, the cap on obviously. But once, I used the razor on my arm without the cap. So as to prevent me from doing it again, my sister told me that I would turn into a very hairy monster. She even convinced me that horns were growing as she was speaking to me, I could feel them!
I called my mother for help, asking her to tell my sister that it wasn't true but my mum confirmed my sister's theory... The following night, I stayed awake, waiting for my body to transform into a beast.
When I was in the 3rd grade we had neighbors whose children had really red hair. They also ate katchup on everything and I mean everything. I asked Mom if that they had red hair because they ate lots of ketchup?
I used to believe that clipping your bangs back in a barrette signaled the bangs to grow very long. I didn't understand that putting them back just allowed you to grow them long without having them in your eyes.
I used to believe that we are lice on some giant's head.. and the earthquakes happened when he moved around.. and it rained when he showered. hmm.. I was amazed to see this on south park.. episode: Lice Capades.. the memories flashed back..
