I was over at my friend's house when I was about 4, and her folks were watching something about Elvis on TV. I didn't know who he was as my folks were more Rolling Stones/Beatles/Dylan fans.

My friend was a whole 6 mos older than me, and thought she knew everything. So she she started telling me all about him, and I swear she told me that he died from drinking too much grape juice.

It put me off drinking grape juice for many years, much to the puzzlement of my mom.

And I don't remember this too well, but my parents tell me I came home that day and did a wicked Elvis impersonation - You Ain't Nothin' But a Hound Dog - complete with the hip/leg thing. I don't know, since I don't remember (or have repressed it, lol). It is a mystery.

For the record, as a grown-up, I am not a particular fan of Elvis, but I don't dislike him either.

My teenage neighbour once came round doing a survey for her religious studies class at school asking "what do you believe happens when you die?" She asked my parents first and then she asked me. I thought they were all crazy because it seemed like the answer was obvious. "You go to the graveyard!"

I remember running into my mum and dad's room when I was little, bawling my eyes out saying I couldn't sleep. They asked me why and I replied "Mummy, what will happen to Rosie (my doll) when I die?"

When I was young, we went to a funeral for a neighbor of my grandparents. I had asked my mom how she died and she said she had something growing inside of her. Not long before the funeral my grandfather had told me not to swallow watermelon seeds because they would grow in my stomach. For a long time I believed she had swallowed a watermelon seed. (She had died of cancer)

For a while, I believed that dead people could see right through the earth they were buried in and that they lay there in their coffins looking up at whoever came to visit them. I figured it would be a bad idea to visit a grave while wearing a dress because whoever was buried there would see right up my skirt.

When AIDS was first being discovered, there were slimming biscuits also called Aids. For a while, i believed that it had been discovered that these biscuits had turned out to cause fatal health problems and i was completely appalled at what iŽd heard.

Interestingly, the name of these biscuits was changed soon afterwards.

I used to believe that people lived forever... I only found out that people died at the age of 3 when my brother told me... I got really scared and every time something happened such as an eye lash falling out i'd be really worried and ask my parents "mummy/daddy will i die?"

I was two when my mom told me that Doctor Suess died. For some reason I thought he was the guy who made animal crackers.

I used to believe that if you listen a voice calling your name and reply, and nobody answer, its the death who was calling you; And some nights, I listened somebody calling me, but nobody was near of my bedroon, so I runned very fast to my bed, under my bedspreat, and stayed there all the night.

Until I was maybe six or seven, I thought that when people died, they just repeated their lives over and over--like rewinding a videotape. When my grandmother was in a nursing home and made a comment about her hazy memories of being a teenager, I quite confidently told her that she'd be one again soon.

When I was small, and my mom was bathing me, she would say "let me wash your body" and then would proceed to wash my genital area. So,,, whenever I heard from the radio that a "body" was found I got a horrific picture in my young head and wondered what happened to the rest of dead person.

When I was a kid I though heaven is a bunch of big antic temples (like in Aten or Rome.) placed on clouds.
When I saw big white clouds on sky I tryed hard to see some buldings on them.
Also I thought Angels(all ppl who died) and God loved to watch what ppl on earth are doing caz they could see throo walls. *Jesus had some smarter stuff to do.
So when night came there was no clouds on sky caz heaven went on other side of Earth,where it was sunny,so angles and God could see everything.
I somethimes felt very uncomftrible in bathroom thinking how God and my dead uncle are watching me...

I used to think that it would take forever to float up to Heaven because it was way up in the sky. I always pictured people floating up in space, and finally reaching the top.

I used to believe that my grandfather was dead and that the man i saw was just his ghost. I thought this because he already had his grave stone so he could be burried with his late wife. I saw that and though that ment he was dead.
