getting olderShow most recent or highest rated first.
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.
That boys turned into women when they became adults and girls turned into men when they became adults.
