my mum told me that you should live everyday like it was your last. when she said this, i thought that i was going to die the next day so i did everything that i wanted to do with my friends-that included sharing a cubicle in the girls loos at school! (i was about 6 at the time). when i got home i rang all of my friends up saying i would die soon and they were distraught. the next day when i went into school, they all thought i was a ghost and it took alot of convincing that i wasn't

when i was five i was climbing on a chain link fence. My uncle told me to knock it off, because the rusty metal could give me tetanus. for almost 6 years i was deathly afraid of metal. i wouldn't handle a knife or eat with a fork. even today, tin foil gives me the creeps.

I used to believe that the actors in movies that died actually *did* die while being filmed...I'll never forget watching "Jesus Christ Superstar" and being so sad and yet awed by the fact that the actor "gave up his life" for that role...

I thought that all people lived until their 100th birthday, then they died. It was like an expiration date of sorts ....

When my Nanny used to point out an obituary of someone she knew in the paper, I used to believe that the undertaker at the funeral home somehow propped open the dead guys eyes for his picture!

I still hold my breath when I pass by cemetaries because it is impolite to breathe when other people can't.

I believed when I was little that if you breathed in as you went by a cemetery you would suck death in and die. I held my breath whenever I was driven past and flatly refused to walk by - not being able to hold my breath long enough!

When I was a kid I thought my mother would poison me to death. She never did it, and are and have always been a normal, non childmurdering mother.

My grandpa died when I was four so my mom told me that he was sleeping at his wake since it was an open coffin but I had feeling he wasn't sleeping because my grandma was in tears. However my brother believed our mom and whispered in my ear "let's steal his watch" at the time he was six, I told him I wasn't sure and he said "Then he'll wake up and chase us" which was true when he was alive. So we did and my brother ran around the funeral home with my grandpa's watch while my mom chased after him. My grandparents lived next to two cemetries so I wasn't frightened of them (only at night) but I used to believe that if you stepped on where they buried someone then they would get mad and grab your leg and drag you down with them, I'm seventeen now and know it is far from true but if I can I will go around where the coffin is buried.

I used to believe that if you died, and you were buried, there was no casket...and the bugs would eat your body. I went around afraid of dieing, worried that my body was going to be dinner for the bugs.

I used to believe when I was a child, that the world finished at 12:00 am on 31th December, cried a lot saying: end the world, end the world!!!.

I used to think that when a person said that ghosts were in limbo, it meant that they were doing the limbo. I thought maybe instead of going towards the light they stayed playing the limbo, and if they touched the stick that meant they had no choice but to go towards the light. Lucky, I didnt believe it for too long. My friend told me what it really was.

When I was younger (I'm nine now.) I thought that when you died, you would just see pitch black. That really scared me, because I didn't want to happen that when I died, I would get bored.

At the age of five I overheard my fifteen year old brother say "We have to go plant Uncle Dick today", in regards to the cremated remains of my Uncle, whose funeral was that day.

I surmised, and believed for several years, that trees grew from people. People died and were "planted", at which time they grew in to trees...

I used to think that when you died you got to take whatever you were carrying with you to heaven. Every night I'd stick my hand through a hole in my blankie and wrap it around my wrist just in case I died in my sleep.

I used to believe that people died on their birthdays. I almost lost a childhood friend because she would brag to me about how she was older than I was (by 1 day), and I would just tartly respond, "That's fine with me, you're gonna die 1 day before me."

When I was small, I thought guns, rather than having bullets, had small poisonous rocks in them, and that if you even stroked one, or sniffed the air around it, you would die! I also thought that when somebody was shot, the bullet could be used again and again and again...

My grandma died when I was very young and my Aunt was upset because I was having a good time playing with my cousin. She thought we should be sad too but I thought someone had to die in order for there to be enough room on the planet for a baby to be born. I thought it was really nice that my grandma had given her spot on earth to someone else. Besides, I thought she was soooo old.
