my great auntie found out that she was adopted when she was a baby and she got told when she was 60 so i used to be scared that my mum would tell me i was adopted
Every Christmas and every time I lost a tooth, I used to get letters from Santa or the Tooth Fairy..... I would gloat to all the other kids how our idols were sending me letters and no one else.
Then I found out it was Grandmother writing me the letters the whole time, and I was furious. I thought it was her way of not letting Santa or the Tooth Fairy come into our house.
I used the believe that a baby could walk right after he or she was born. When my friend told my kindergarten class that she started walking at the age of one, I raised my hand and asked if something was wrong with her.
If I was misbehaving my grandma used to say that if I didn't behave myself a gypsy would come and take me and put me into her bag full of snot! Everytime we went to the shops in town I was on the look out for the gypsies with their snot bags.
I used to believe that my older sister was half-alien, half-human. She told me that, like an older sister would.
When I was 12, my older brother was big into army stuff and always drank from a canteen. I went into his room one day and saw the canteen. I stuffed a bunch of ritz crackers in it and poured tabasco sauce in it too, then shook it up and left it there. The next time he took a drink, he spat it out all over! The belief comes in because I just recently told him I had done it (I am 26 now) and for all this time, he thought it had been our younger brother! (Because I would never do something like that...)
When I was a toddler my Dad was trying to explain to me what evolution was...he told me 'We used to all be monkeys'...from that moment on I believed that my whole family and I had once lived as gorillas in the jungle, and couldnt imagine how I didnt remember that part of my life!!
Until I was in maybe 7th grade, I thought Paul McCartney was my real father. I also thought that my "fake" parents were holding him hostage in my attic.
When I was about five or six, my sister used to get mad because she had to watch me all the time. To get even, she loved telling me that I had been born to a monkey family and that my parents had adopted me from them. She told me if I told anyone, than my parents would send me back to my monkey family. I believed this till I was about seven or eight, when I finally broke down and ran crying hysterically to my mom, begging her not to send me away....
When i was 4 ,My brother and sister would go to my grandparent house in californa alone.Since i wasn't aloud on the plane by myself(but my brother and sister were old enough)My parent told me they were going to home work camp. I belived then till recently...
Also when we were at my Grandparents swimming pool my brother told me we came from a family of mermaids.When i told him i couldn't breath or see under water he said that wasnt smart enough to be a mermaid.He also said that i had to eat orange food things to become more of a mermaid.
i was convinced that my older sister really can cook me in a pot.
My mums parents lived on one side of the city and dads on the other. When we travelled to see my mums parents every saturday arvo, we would pass a High Security Jail. Dad would always say to me "my dad is in there"...and I would believe him. Even though we would visit Dads parents on Sunday arvo!!!!
When my dad was upset he'd pace back and forth in the living room.
I thought he was only angry when his face turned red, and since I was very young and small and couldn't see his face from behind, I assumed that this was some sort of "hopscotch" sort of activity and I'd pace right behind him. I loved spending time with my dad. This was a great time to play with him. Lucky that my mom was around to tell me not to curse like him though. The leader cursed, not the follower.
It was my grandad's birthday and I asked my grandma how old he was and she told me he was 21 and I believed her, but I couldn't understand how that would work, I spend the whole day trying to figure it out.
Because my mum can't swim or drive, I believed that all women couldn't swim or drive.
I used to believe that my Mum was Mary and my Dad was Jesus (?) and I was born in a stable, then my parents changed to who they are now after I as born. I believed this happened to everyone.
For several weeks, I thought my mother was a cactus. It caused recurring nightmares.
i used to believe que era un mono y que me habian cortado la cola y rapado, cuando me enseņaban mi partida de nacimiento decia Bella Aurora y yo creia que era en la Aurora jajaja
I used the scar on my dads leg was a shark bite when in fact he fell off his bike when he was a child
During my childhood, I thought that the mother I was living with was not my real mom because she wasn't white. It wasn't until junior high that I learned about dominant and recessive genes, and realized my mom was my REAL mom.
