I used to think I was super special because when driving down the road at night, I would squinch my eyes together in order to make the street lights twinkle. I thought this was some secret between them and me.

When I was in the first grade, our teacher played this song called "Spooky Stew" during October. She played it every day and, although I enjoyed it, it had a negative effect on my brain.
Every night, when my parents were giving me a bath, I would totally freak out a start screaming and stuff because I believed that I was in a big vat of "Spooky Stew". My parents had to talk to my teacher and tell her to stop playing the song. Man, were my classmates ticked!!!

I used to believe that smoke coming out from some stove or wherever contains genie so if you can contain it in a bottle and cover it you can capture genie so I once did that and many times I used to unlock it and watch it if it's there or not.

when I was about four or five, i believed I was a fairy, because of this i thought i could fly, I tested it out by jumping down the stairs.

That really hurt.

I figured I coudn't use my powers for my own gain and dedicated my life to saving my mum from opening doors!

I hated doors because i thought they would bite my bum. EG, don't let the door bite you on the way out.

From the age of 4-8 I used to believe I was a cat trapped in a girls body. I would have my Mother draw whiskers on me with eyeliner and I would put on a tail and drink milk from a bowl on the floor. I would say "No, I really am a cat! I was supposed to be born a cat."

When I was little and my mom would take me to the store I would walk with my feet turned in when she wasn't looking because I thought if people thought that I was a crippled child they would give me money.

When I was 5 I use to believe if you closed your eyes and spun in a couple circles, that when you stopped you would be invisible.

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 think that if I squeeze my nose shut and build a lot of pressure by breathing in my brains would come out from the ears, as ears popped. I always imagined brains to look like ground meat.

My parents emigrated from the UK to New Zealand when I was very small. My brother told me that we were special as all our blood was blue and thats why you could see the veins through the underside of my wrist. The next time I hurt myself and saw red blood I thought there was something seriously wrong with me and my brother explained that when our blue blood reaches the un pure air outside it gets tainted and turns red ! Without a lie, I truly belived this throughout my whole childhood !

I used to believe that my house was under constant surveillance by the government and that the mirrors, TV screen, Computer Screen, and Windows were all two-way mirrors (like on cop shows), so I'd always pretend to do normal stuff around the mirrors like read a newspaper, listen to music while doing the dishes, or other stuff, to try and fool them into thinking I was just another regular person and they shouldn't be watching me.

When I was about six or so, I convinced my sister(two years younger than I) that she was, in fact, a fish. I don't know how I did it, or why. She claimed not to believe me, but as soon as I pretended to look away, she started trying to 'swim' right there.

for some reason, when i was around pre-school age, i was convinced that i could change into some kind of wolf someday because i could make this really weird sound in the back of my throat. i thought that i couldnt tell anyone, but one time i my mom was talking to my teacher and i let out this weird "growl". i think they ignored me because kids are weird, but i remember being afraid that they were going to find out my "secret"... i hope i never have kids as strange as i was!!
