top belief!

I used to think that if you held your breath when you were young you could save those few breaths you would have taken but didn't and then use them on your death bed and and add seconds, even days to your life. I had a plan to hold my breath every day for a few minutes so that by the time I was old I would have gained myself at least a month of extra living-time.

When I was young, I used to think that the amount of wrinkles an old person had corresponded with their age. For example, if a lady was 80 years old, she had to have 80 wrinkles on her face. Also, I believed that they would double in size each year, so by the time my grandfather would turn 100, his wrinkes would be so large that he would be unable to fit inside his bedroom.

Whenever I asked a question such as "How come my sister has to get braces?" my parents would answer "It's in her jeans, my parents both had them". I figured when you got to a certain age, you would recieve a pair of pants that would somehow determine your life.....im still waiting!! haha

My daughter believed that the older you got the darker you got and that is how black people came into being. Her dad's family is Native American, he was dark, his mother darker and his grandmother even darker. When we moved into a new neighborhood with a black nex door neighbor, she kept referring to him as that really old black man. He was probably 40 at the time.

When I was younger, the term "dumping" was never explained to me, as far as relationships. So accordingly, I associated it with "trash cans". This is why I thought being "dumped" was so bad and why women would rather dump the man before he could dump her. Sounded so painful!

I remember when I was 5 years old, my dad gave me a bath. While I was hanging out in the tub playing with the water and toys my dad had a friend visiting with him. I remember over hearing my dad saying to his friend how he felt very tired and that he felt and was falling apart at his age. I literally thought he was "falling a part." I was crying all night long.

I assumed that some people were born old, and I happened to be born young and would stay pretty much the same forever.

When I was a little girl, I believed I would go to a far away country and marry a prince. And I actually did almost just that!! :)

When i was smaller, and i was beginning to learn about puberty, i read something about how your voice cracks during puberty. I then began to think it was like a test- if you were manly enough, then your voice would stop cracking eventually and your voice would become brawny and mature. If you werent manly enough, you would awarded with a high pitched voice for the rest of your life.

I used to believe that when someone was so old that they only had gray hair on their head left, they would die from it. My parents told me this to trick me into picking their gray hair.

I used to think that if a grown up fell down, they wouldn't be able to get up by themselves.

I used to think that people just appeared on Earth assigned to be certain people, for instance I thought I would never grow and being a kid was just my 'job.' Therefore, I thought all the clothes that no longer fit me were just shrinking, and I couldn't figure out why.

When I was young I used to think that when you got really old then you got younger again-kind of reversed! I thought that when they got down to babies again they would die!
I can't beleive I said that!

when i was an extremely young child... i remember hearing my parents talk but not know what they were saying. i use to think that adults spoke a different "adult" language. eventually... i knew what they were saying. i think those memories are from when i had just started talking or something. perhaps i have a super memoy or something.... yeah... super memory.... cooool
