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!

When I was 5 years old, I used to believe that your age is when the day you were born.

Example:

You are 1 years old if you are born on June 1st, you are 8 when you born on October 8th, and you are 30 years old when you born on July 30th.

When I was little, I used to believe no one could see how I could. I'd keep asking my mom if a tree was really there, or if a car was really parked at the store. I just thought I saw things differently.

I used to believe that to get a name, you had to go through a machine as a baby that would suck up your brain and analyse your DNA and give you a name that fits your personality. I thought this until when I was 14.

When I used to lie in bed at night and hear the sound of my blood pulsing in my ears I was convinced that it was little elves in there, mining the ear wax with their minuture pick-axes.

When I was little and it was time for bed, I would lay in the very center and I would not move a muscle. The reason I did this is because I thought that as soon as the lights went out there were cowboys laying on the floor with their guns drawn. If they saw a part of my body, they were going to shoot it.

I used to believe that when you weren't wearing shoes you were "bearfoot" as opposed to barefoot. It made perfect sense to me because bears didn't wear shoes.

When we had a nationality-day coming up at school, I asked dad where we were from. He said I was half scottish and half finnish.
We had visited our grandparents (from my mother's side) in Scotland before, but I didn't remember hearing about Finland before.
Our last name is Finn (dad had taken mom's name when they married, he has later on said people couldn't pronounce his old one), so I figured it was somehow connected to Finland, and soon decided, my family has their very own country! I don't remember how long I believed this, but I just remembered it, when we were watching a movie where a woman announced she was the princess of Finland. I was a weird kid.
