When I was a kid, I thought when Smokey The Bear said "only you can prevent forest fires," he really meant only me. I thought I was the only one in the world who could stop fires from ravaging and eventually destroying all the world's forests.

I was constantly on-guard for smoke in the woods behind our house. I even had a battle-plan to run in with the garden hose and put a fire out if it started.

My mother eventually calmly explained to me that Smokey didn't mean I was the only one that could stop forest fires. It felt like the weight of the world had been lifted from my shoulders.

I used to believe that we were being played like dolls similiar to the way I played with my barbies. I thought maybe there was a little girl controlling me that I could not see.

The upper part of my ear is slightly pointed. As a child, I thought that the barber seeing my ear would think that I am an alien. The barber often cut my hair in such a way that it hurt. But since he knew I am an alien, I thought, if I show that I am unhappy at the way he cuts my hair, he would be more careful. So I would often show my unhappiness at his cutting by jerking my head away or frowning emphatically.

A few years ago, when I was 8, I believed I could go to Hogwarts. I wrote letters to myself informing me I was a witch and I would be attending Hogwarts. I brought them into school to try and fool my Harry Potter mad friend. She didn't believe me though.
Then, I would go home and pack my suitcase with a witches costume from Halloween, books and a chopstick wand. I would even pretend that my beanie baby frog was my pet toad. I would walk downstairs dragging my case behind me and tell my parents I was going to the station to catch the Hogwarts Express.

Weird, I know.

From about the ages of 6 to 11, i was sure that i was an alien test-subject/princess, and that when i became a grown-up, they would abduct me and take me to their planet, making me the alien queen. I never told my freinds of this though, as i didn't want them to get jealous, and also, i didn't want my alien spectators to know i already knew their plans.

When I was about 7, I was convinced I was going to grow up and become Barbie. I would lie in bed fantasizing about my long blonde hair, my curiously pointy feet, my blue eyeshadow and thinking it was only a matter of time.

When I was little, I of course had my own version of the "I'm an adoptee and my real parents are rich and nice!" story, though my was a little odder. In my version, I was a plutonian princess whos UFO had crashed into a telephone pole when me and my sister were escaping from war. My sister sadly did not live and i was found wearing my synthetic human skin as a baby by my mom. I could speak plutonian, and my people were always contacting me (we communicated through woodchips) telling me to be ready, they were coming to get me becouse my mother was dying and I had to fill her place as the last remaining for the throne of queen of pluto. Also, pluto was seperated into two halves- the warm side and the cold (warm side facing the side, the cold not) and I lived on the warm side and that's why we can survive. Oh, and in our real forms we blended color like the lizard guy in Monsters Inc. And, we were at war with Mars and I think allied with Venus.

To this day I speak plutonian.

I have a great mom, and I love her very much. But when I was little I guess I had those, 'really I'm a princess and my kind and queen parents are out there missing me' daydreams that a lot of kids have. I'm not sure what it was that convinced me it was true, but somewhere the line between make believe and reality blurred, and I became convinced it was true. I kept it a secret, though, because I figured I was supposed to. Until one day I got mad at my mom for making me go to my room or something. And as she turned to walk away I yelled, "I like my other mom a lot better than you!" Obviously she was a little confused by this and told me I did not have another mom. Which reminded me that she was right.

When I was little, I had a Baby Bop costume from Barney and went around thinking I was really her. As I got older and met my best friend, I found out that she used to believe that she was Bareny. LOL.

I used to think i was an alien spy sent to earth to get all the good things on earth. There are a bunch of other people sent to other planets in the universe to get all the good stuff from them. Then in the near future, 'The boss' would beam us up in his space ship, and we would all get together and put all the good things together to make the perfect planet.

Im still waiting for 'The boss'.
