There was a giant at the end of the road that pulled it, so the car never moved, the world moved around my car.

I thought that when anyone else cut a paper with scissors they had to flip it over and cut it again. Since I could do both sides at once, i thought i was special.

When I was a young child like 7 or 8 years old, I learned that on one night in the whole year, whatever you wish for will come true.... so I wished for having wings and could fly! so, the next day, I started running all over my room and jumping from the top of my bunk bed flapping my hands to see if I could fly! LOL

When I was little (3 or 4) whenever I took a bath I thought the water was going to boil, so whenever my dad or mom would come to take me out of the bath I would yell "get me out before the water boils!!"

I used to believe that anything could happen or be brought into existence if you just wished hard enough and long enough. When I tried and it didn't work, I just thought that I didn't want it enough or didn't try long enough. Sometimes I'd try so hard and my body would be tense for so long that I'd actually be in pain. Actually, sometimes I still believe it, I just don't try any more because, well, ouch.

I used to swear that everyone saw colors differently. Such as what I saw as red someone else actually saw blue but called it red because that's how they learned it. I used to ask everyone to describe the colors to me to see if I was right. I was convinced that I was a genius because I had figured that all out by myself.

I used to believe that if you got inside a vehicle, the world moved, not the vehicle that you were in. But I still wonder what went through my mind when there were OTHER vehicles nearby...

When I was little, about 3 or 4, my brother, who was like 7 at the time, told me I was actually a boy but my parents really wanted a girl so they just pretended I was one. I believed him for a long time.

When I was in grade school (i think 2nd) i thought there was a second playground you can go to by running 3 laps in the grass, then moving to the center and jumping up and down 10 times, and then going to the basketball court and winning a One (you) on Eight game. I then thought millions of trap doors would appear that only you and people who have found the secret playground could see. You then had to find the right one to get to the second playground. I actually did this once and i was dissapointed when trap doors didn't appear.

As I would walk home from the bus stop (all by myself), I used to sing songs...("this is me walking home from school/I learned math today/etc etc etc)...I did this because I wondered if people were watching my life on tv and I wanted to make my life into a musical (this was way before The Truman Show ever came out)

When I was about 5 years old, I was a big fan of Sesame Street. One day my older brother told me that if I took a crescent wrench and closed the jaws of it on my nose and pulled real hard, I could take my nose off just like Bert and Ernie used to do. I tried for an entire afternoon before my mother came home from work and stopped me. By then, my nose was black and blue.

I used to believe I would be able to fly when I grew up. Sometimes I think that still might be truth.

When I was about 6 or 7, I was convinced that in a previous life, I was a ballet dancer in Europe during WWII because I kept having these dreams about a ballet dancer being around a bunch of (usually very depressed) GI's. Of course now that I'm a grownup, the fact that at the time, I was taking ballet classes at the time, and my dad's favorite TV program then was "COMBAT!" I'm sure had nothing to do with that... :)

to the silent embarassment of my family, when i was seven, i used to believe that if i wore this special gray jacket and walked around the block ten times, i would get the strength of ten men for ten minutes. now the first couple of times it wasn't too bad but when my three younger brothers started to tell me to give it up, well ... it took perserverence.

When I was about 5 I believed that I could make my finger light up if I removed the bulb from a lamp and stuck my finger in it. So I went and actually tried it. Didn't quite light up the way I expected...

I used to belive that if i dug in a grassy slope in my playground i would find treasure.

By some bizzare coincidence, some kid from years ago had buried marbles and foreign coins and old coins there and my friend and i made a pact to bury it all again when we dug it up, because it belonged to someone else who thought it precious enough to keep it hidden.

I passed by the place last week, a wall has been built up over our trasure trove. And its safe forever now.
