One time, when I was 6 or 7, I was standing in my hallway, looking into a room at a weird angle. I didn't realize that your eyes were in two different places, so you'd get two different perspectives, so when I closed one eye and I only saw a wall, and then closed the other eye and saw into the room, I was convinced I could see through walls. I began bragging to my brother, and got really frustrated when I couldn't recreate the results...
when i was younger, i believed (for whatever reason) that every time i went around a pole or through a loop, i would have to go back around or through; or else i would be, in some way, attached to it forever.
When I was about 8, I used to have conversations with my pet cats, because my friends were never around to play. To this day, I always thought that the cats understood me better than my human friends did...
I used to believe that it was illegal to move when you were on an escalator. whenever I saw someone moving on one I always thought that someone was going to come up and yell at them
I used to think anyone who disagreed with me was an idiot!
Since I was 3 years old I used to believe I was from another country, it had it name, cities, people, language, and national songs. I used to spend days singing that songs in my invented country language, feeling nostalgical and saying to other people I can't wait to go back...
I used to believe anyone who disagreed with me was an idiot.
In the US there use to be a show called "Chalk Zone" the idea was that every time you drew on the blackboard with chalk it would come to life in this world called Chalk Zone and you need a magic chalk to get there. That influenced me when I was in elementary school to believe that on the dry erase bored their would be another world waiting for drawings to come to life. So I would draw a whole bunch of characters wishing them all the best to their new life in the whatever world they went to...
When I was 11 I read on a paranormal stories site (supposedly "true") about a method anyone could use to make themselves invisible. I tried it, and took a walk around my house, and when my parents never noticed me I flipped because I was sure it actually worked. I tried it on the my parents and on the kids at the park. Finally, I decided to tell my dad about it and he rolled his eyes and said you can't make yourself invisible. I tried it on the kids at the park again and it turned out they were just ignoring me, and the last time I tried it they messed with me and acted like I had disappeared and there was a ghost around. That's when my invisibility dream ended.
When I was little, I would always get these false memories. For example, when I was 7 I was thoroughly convinced that me and my parents had floated around in an anti-gravity chamber at some point. I also thought that my parents were friends with Christopher Robin, and I would always beg my dad to take me to go see him. I believed this until I turned 9.
My mother used to tell me I was like a bull in a china shop. Only, I heard "bowl" in a china shop. I imagined myself as a one-of-a-kind, delicate, beautiful, priceless heirloom... until I was in college when I heard the correct version.
When I was about 4, my dad thought it would be a good idea to teach me about my ancestors. Apparently they were a Norwegian clan of vikings (true story). He worded it incorrectly and said, "We used to be vikings up north where it's cold".
I spent the next year thinking that, even though I could remember it, I used to be a viking savage from Alaska.
for some very strange reason that i really do not know when i was in a long car journey i used to sing out of the window really quitely believing that there was a machine that could pick up really good singing voices and that someone would find me (by tracking my voice obviously) and make me famous.
When I was little, after watching Snow White I went outside to play in the garden and I pretended to talk to the birds - imagine my surprise when they started talking back! I'd stayed out all day talking with my new feathered friends asking them about their adventures, and when I informed my mum of my activities she'd tut and say I was being silly.
One day when I was talking to the birds I heard one laughing at me - I looked up to see my gran laughing out the window while my mum and uncle where crouched down below her pretending to be these new 'friends'... I was 6 and had been having these conversations everyday for the past few weeks! lol
i used to watch a show where this little boy would jump in a book and land where ever the book took place so i tried it with my own book, and i was so dissapointed I cried.
I used to believe that "May Day" (May 1st) was like Memorial Day for Air Force pilots, because when they were crashing they'd shout "May day, may day!"
I used to believe that I was the only person who had my name, and that no two people could have the same name.
I used to belief that sitting on the floor is actually sitting on someone's ceiling and I have the power to watch from above!
When I was a kid I used to believe that the colorful spots you'd get behind your eyelids after looking at the sun were aliens trying to contact me. I would squint my eyes really tight on car trips and try and decipher what the aliens were obviously trying very hard to communicate to me. After much thought and courage, I eventually told my dad that I was being contacted by aliens. He told me that, unfortunately, I was not as special as I thought I was, but it's a good story now!
I used to believe that people could read my mind. That's how mom knew if I was lying. I never questioned why I couldn't read other peoples' minds...
