getting olderShow most recent or highest rated first.
When I was little (4 or 5 years old) I used to believe that my mom would send me to an izolated island with dinosaurs and somebody older would replace me because i didn't believe that i was gonna grow up. I remember looking at a chair and asking myself "why doesn't the chair gain in hight also?" :))
When I was young I believed that previous generations saw in black and white until color TV and movies came along.
I used to think when you grew up you'd get to a certain age and then get to choose whether to be a boy or a girl. And I was always gonna be a boy (I'm a girl) because is seemed more fun!! Thankfully I grew out of that one :S
That Alzheimer's Disease was Old Timer's Disease.
When I was a child, I used to believe I would never get old.
I used to think that people keep growing taller till they die. I assumed that my grandparents were the size of a toothpaste tube when they were born!!
When i was about 7 i believed that grown ups cant cry, and if they can, they never do it, cuz they are so tough and big. im 21 now, and i know thats not the case :)
I used to believe that old people saw in black and white.
i used to beleve that once you gre up, you could never go on vacation or have fun ever again.
now i know it isnt true, but i dont have fun anymore lol
When I was about 8 my friend said his mum was only 12 and that she was 3 when she had him
i used to believe that as you grew older, you grew taller and never stopped growing. so in my mind a 100 year old person should be 100 feet tall, which baffled me since the elderly that i saw were shrunk and nowhere near even 7 feet tall
i didnt worry about learning to tie shoes because i thought once i hit a certain age i would automatically know how
I believed that adults knew everything. Literally. And since I'd heard somewhere that 18 was the official age when one becomes an adult, I thought that when I turned 18 everything would just come to me and I'd be like, "whoa".
i used to beilive that there was only 29 numbers in the universe and when you reached 29 you turned back into a baby
When I was about three years old my dad said that he was ten years old and I believed him.
I used to think up until I was about 6, that you stayed a kid forever, and that adults were always adults and were never kids. It wasn't until one day I heard my mom say something along the lines of when she was a kid. I asked, Wow! You were a kid too? lol I was shocked.
I believed that my clothes shrunk in my wardrobe over time, rather than me growing out of them. I thought everyone was born a certain size and had to buy new clothes when their current clothes had shrunk too small to fit anymore!
I used to believe that your social security number was for a special account the government started for you when you went to work, and they kept money you saved up for when you were old.
When I was about 5 I thought my mom and dad came into being the same time I did! For some reason they didn't exist before me, and neither did anyone else. Some people just came into existence older than others and then everyone got to grow up. I was shocked to see our photo's of my siblings when they were younger.
I used to believe that my clothes would get bigger so I could always wear them. My mother would tell me that some piece of clothing had "gotten too small" and I would insist that it would get bigger. I guess I figured that if I gotten bigger, and the clothes had "gotten smaller," they could also get bigger, since they were clearly changing size already.
