Do you remember how Yogi Bear would say "Smarter than the average bear"? I used to think that there was some bear out there that was called "the average bear" that Yogi was smarter than. I always wondered why they never showed him on the show
Until I was six I used to believe that presents from friends and relatives appeared by magic before the giver's eyes, as well as that friends and relatives had super x-ray vision.
When I was small I used to worry about getting addicted to drugs and being a bad kid. I thought that "bad drugs" included ibuprofen.
When I was little I was obsessed with dinosaurs. I used to believe that all humans were the dream of a dinosaur and basically each person had a dinosaur counterpart. I thought whenever the humans was a awake, their dinosaur was sleeping and visa verse.
After watching a cartoon, I thought that shoes were alive and I was hurting mine when I walked in them. For a few days I walked with a portion of my feet tipped off the ground. I stopped when I decided their faces were on the top of the shoe, not the bottom.
When I was young, I used to believe that if I went into buildings with extremely tall ceilings I would float to the top. Not sure why I believed it, but I refused to go into big buildings until I was at least 8.
When I was little I somehow got it in my head that when you were riding in a car and it was storming and dark out - that if you let your feet touch or try to touch the floorboard and evil skunk would come up from the floorboards and bite your toes off.
When I was little I somehow got it in my head that beige was THE most awesome color in the history of ever. I thought beige was clear, like glass with little flecks of other colors in it. I suppose a bit like a glass kaleidoscope, or rainbow sprinkles on a white icing cupcake. I would envision my bedroom ceiling being this "beige" and I'd be able to see the stars through it and in the daytime the sun would make all the colored flecks reflect on different parts of my room.
I never did get my "beige" ceiling.
I still think my version of beige is better.
I was sure that when it was raining, it wasn't just water falling, also with the water there were worms falling, because when the rain stopped it was very normal to see wet soil and many worms on the ground. That's why I always believed if you open your mouth to taste the rain....not only water you will getˇ of course I never did it.
I Used To Believe that i have power to grow a sixth finger in my hands but i didn't want to cuz it will look bad but once i tried but didn't work .. :P
As I child, I was taken to the beach pretty much every summer. I used to believe that on the horizon was a man with a huge pump who generated the waves which hit me as I swam. Sometimes, when the waves annoyed me, I'd shout to the horizon on the top of my voice saying 'STOP IT, YOU'RE NOT FUNNY'.
I did get a few odd looks by passers by.
I used to believe that when kids get older they change to the opposite sex. I cried because I didn't want to be a girl.
When i was 4 I believed that my tears came from my cheeks and when I drank water it filled my cheeks back up with tears
I used to believe that if you told a lie, Dragonflies will come and sew your mouth shut. For real.
I used to believe that a stranger would kidnap me from my bedroom in the night so I made sure that my parents opened the curtains of the tv room so they could see when the stranger came with the ladder to climb up and take me.
I firmly believed Peter Pan was real, so I tried to get my family to read bedtime stories about him in hopes he would come at night to get me, just like in the movie. Since I was the only person in my family who actually liked Peter Pan, no one told any stories, so I had an excuse as to why he never showed up.
When I was five, i decided I was no longer content with my human skin. I thought being a skeleton was much cooler, so I asked my mom how. She thought I was asking her how to keep my skin clean, so she gave me a cream. For three days i was convinced i was gonna turn into a skeleton and lose my skin with this cream. When i realised it was impossible, i cried.
When I was younger I was convinced that if someone couldn't see your actual body then they couldn't see you at all. When my parents would put me to bed and I wasn't tired I would cover myself with my blanket adn army crawl into the living room, convinced they wouldn't see me.
I used to think it would be good to become an adult because people would be able to understand logic and come to agreements. I realize now adults are just as ridiculous as children!
if you stand on your nose and sing the blues you wont get hiccups for a month.
