My mom made me believe that if I unplugged the timer on my TV and plugged it in that it would break my TV. I didn't find out till I was in middle school. Thanks Mom, I'm still an Insomniac

When I was young I thought my family were aliens conducting an experiment on me. And they were just pretending that they were my family. And they spied on me through mirrors.

I honestly thought that stepping on a crack in the sidewalk would hurt my mother. Step on a crack, break your mothers back. I hated her, so I would step on the cracks on purpose and wonder why it wasn't working.

I used to stop myself from thinking about anything I didn't want my parents to hear when I was in a room with them because I thought they could listen in on all of my thoughts.

My dad used to tell me he had seen every episode of Road Runner, and would prove it by telling me what would happen. Even when he messed up, he claimed he was just getting the episodes mixed up. I believed him until I was a teenager.

When I was little my mom didn't allow me to participate in Halloween activities (she was very religious at the time). So every Halloween when people would come dressed up to the door I thought that they were really actual vampires, monsters, etc. and it would scare the living hell out of me. Every time I heard a knock or the doorbell ring I would run and hide in my closet so that they couldn't get me.
...Thanks, Mom.

When I was young, my mom told me that I dropped from a mango tree that grew in the neighbour's back yard and if I went to the back yard that the neighbour would take me back. I never went to the back yard or spoke to the neighbour alone until I was eight years old that is when I found out that I was born in the hospital and the neighbour thought I was sooo cute and wanted to adopt me because he knew my grandparents.

When I was in elementary school, my family lived near a town called Carpentersville. One day I asked my mom what my uncle did for a living, and she said he was a carpenter. I spent years convinced that since he was a carpenter, my uncle (along with all the other carpenters in the world) lived in Carpentersville. As it turns out, he never even lived anywhere near that town, though even now I still catch myself thinking he used to live there!

When my mom tried to explain "times tables" in math, I couldn't understand what an actual table had to do with anything. Math went downhill from there!
