When I was about 4, I was watching TV with the family and I saw a statue "come alive". From that day on I believed that statues come alive. And would'nt you know it my mother received one as a gift. You couldn't keep me in the same room with that damn thing. I would see it and scream and cry in terror convinced it was going to come alive and eat me or something. Eventualy we had to get rid of it because it was freaking me out so bad. I still get nervous around statues...Brrrr!

I used to truly believe that EVERYTHING I thought could be heard out loud, and I was the only one stuck with that problem. When people would stare at me, I figured they could hear me think, so I stared at them and thought my hardest, 'I can't help it!!!'. I figured the only reason no one had brought it up was because it was like a medical condition, and that you shouldn't talk about such serious matters...

I used to believe that my dog was a spy. I thought he was "planted" in my house so that someone in another country could keep an eye on me. I thought there was a camera in my dogs head and he recorded me with his eyes and his ears picked up the sound, and when he slept he was actually transmitting the images back to whoever was spying on me!! I was always careful about what I did and said around the dog. Still to this day I'm leary about what I do and say around my dogs!!!

When I was two years old my brother was born, and I always wanted to get in his crib, but my mom would always catch me trying to climb the bars. So, my two year old mind figured if I couldn't see her, she couldn't see me, so I attempted to climb into his crib with my hand over my eyes. Needless to say I was very surprised when it didn't work.

My favourite movie when I was young was undeniably The Brave Little Toaster. I watched the movie so many times that I began to believe that objects really did come alive when you turned your back on them, and that by throwing things in the garbage you were ending their lives. So secretly I began saving scraps of garbage and broken appliances that my parents threw out. Eventually, my mother found my stash in my dresser drawer and began wondering if her child had mental issues. I came back to reality soon after that.

When I was about six years old (1960's), I believed the laugh track on television was other tv viewers laughing along with the program. I thought I could hear them through the television. Then I would laugh at completely inappropriate times believing that other viewers would wonder what that crazy kid was laughing at.

When I was young (and strange), I used to try to dance to every word someone said. basically, i'd bust a move every other sentence.
This didn't last long.

At a family reunion, we had a nice little place to stay with a hottub. So my cousins and I are in the hottub and we have the heat pretty low since it's hot outside. And our youngest cousin decides he would like to hold his breath underwater, but since none of us are wearing watches (naturally, we ARE in a hottub), we'll have to count for him. So we say sure, okay. Our cousin goes under the water. Stays down there for a good 30 seconds or more. When he comes back up and asks, 'How long was I under for?', my second oldest cousin says, "1 Second."

He was stunned and argued that no it was NOT just one second! So we convinced him that time passes differently underwater. What seems like a long time to him while he's underwater is only a few seconds to us above the water.

To this he sat still for a while, then said, "Okay." And tried again.

When I was barely able to communicate (probably about 3), my sister convinced me that if I ate one of my mom's houseplants I would turn into a koala. Nothing happened. Which I guess is good, since I didn't die or get poisoned. Not too many days or weeks (or maybe months since I didn't have much notion of time back then), she convinced me that if I ate wood I'd a beaver. We still have furniture with gnaw marks.

I used to believe that our life was one big dream, and that the moment we died, we would jolt upright, wake up and it would turn out that we were in fact aliens on another planet.

Dont worry, I've always been a warped kid!

I had a crush on this girl once and it was only when I first saw her home, that I realized that other people actually exist on the planet besides myself; I thought that once I could no longer see them, they just waited until I came back into their life and would continue until I left again.

I used to believe that my life was a video game. Specifically, a Game Boy game. I was the character that some being was playing as, completely controlling my every move. When I slept, my player had turned off his Game Boy, and when I would die, his Game Boy had broke. Everyone in the world was controlled in the exact same way. Oddly enough, one of my friends thought the exact same thing.

I believed the BIONIC WOMAN was real - I was so bad my dad took me to Universal Studio's to prove to me that bionics were not real!! Well, we get there and they have a black van on display for anyone to lift (the doors are welded shut- no access inside) I go & lift it and OH MY GOD !!! I told my dad he could leave & I thanked him for bringing me to my real home- Jaime would be there shortly to retrieve me - My dad was begging the curators of US to please open the van & display the counter weights- they couldn't it was welded shut! So I dismiss my dad - thanks & all but go on back to Utah because I am home now! I was 6 or 7!

My sister and I shared a room and bed for most of my childhood. She was always scaring me by hiding under the bed. But, the worst was when she would tell me that a cow was looking in the window. I was absolutely terrified of this "cow" and would never look outside. I would make sure the curtains were tucked tightly around the window with no gaps. I would run outside in the morning to see if a cow had left any traces, but I, of course, never found any. I still don't like to look out of windows at night.
