getting olderShow most recent or highest rated first.
After a trip into a wooded area, my parents needed to check my brother, sister and I for ticks. My father got in with us to search us head to toe (and actually found one on my sister). From this experience, I remember thinking that one day soon, my sister and I would start to grow our penises (as my brother and Dad both had them - and they were older). I literally thought that you had to be a certain age to have one, and it was only a matter of time before everyone got their own.
I used to believe elderly people always ate soup because when I went to my grand-mother's, I ate soup.
I used to believe that children stayed little.
I used to think soup actually made you grow up.
I used to believe that there was an actual point where I became a grownup.
I believed as a young child and then teenager that when one reached adulthood everyone did life correctly and never did any wrong doings. Needless to say I was so disappointed to find out grown ups were just as guilty of wrong doing as kids were!
Red hair tends to skip a generation in my family. When I was little, my parents told me that my grandfather had red hair before I was born but he had gray hair at the time. Somehow I figured out that the whole reason that old people had gray hair was because they had to give away their color to their grand kids when they were born.
I used to think that people were naturally assigned roles in life, such as being a parent or child. Thus, I didn't think anyone grew, they stayed the same way forever. I could never quite figure out why my clothes kept shrinking and I had to get more.
a friend of my little sister's had 4 older brothers, so she thought that when you got older you grew a penis!
I used to believe all adults with jobs didn't have to take care of themselves or sleep, have a house, eat, an drink. I also believed adults with jobs never got sick.
when i was little i thought that when my mom was little she had a different name than she did when she was an adult and i asked her what her name was when she was my age and she told me that she has had the same name all her life! i would geet soooo mad!!!
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.
