At the age of 4 I was absolutely certain I could make anything out of paper and sticky tape or glue. There was a series on television where the kids all wore jeans trousers and jackets. I loved those, but my mom wouldn't buy me jeans. So I took a a lot of paper, put them all together with sticky tape, drew trousers on it that looked exactly like a pair of jeans (I must have thought at the time...) and cut it out. So now I had the front. That had been a lot of work and I was getting tired of it, so for the back I had another solution. I cut out paper bands and taped them from one side of the trouser leg to the other, say 4 or 5 of those down both legs. Colouring them blue was too much work, I was contented with white jeans as well. I tried to put them on, but of course the paper teared and I was very disappointed. I didn't fall from my belief though... Some weeks later I very badly wanted a go-kart, and I started all over again, even making wheels out of paper or cartbox and being disappointed when the kart wasn't strong enough to carry me. The conviction still held, because somewhat later I tried to make a trapeze out of paper for my own room (I must have seen a circus show on the telly). I somehow convinced my dad to tape it to the ceiling with the sticky tape so I could swing the trapeze (piece of cake, I believed). I think my paper dream ended when this last work of art didn't stand a chance either....

I remember that when the show on Adult Swim, Full Metal Alchemist, first aired...I believed that I could be an alchemist. I would go outside, draw transmutation circles with chalk, and try. I clapped over and over but nothing ever worked...I was so disappointed that I went on the internet and reasearced everything. I also tried to bring a dead lizard back to life.

When I was little (actually I still do this) I would imagine a narrator describing what I was doing (in a very eloquent way!) and what I was like. I pictured my life as a movie. When we were driving in the car and the radio was on I would imagine that it was the beginning of a movie where music was playing and the first scene was of my family going somewhere in the car. Sometimes I would make up the name of the movie or imagine what it was going to be about. Or I would come up with a tune in my head and have that be a theme song for my day (I usually did this in the morning) and I would act out a montage to go with the song. I would do the montage over and over until I got it exactly right.

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 get° of course I never did it.

I used to believe I was Polish when I was five years old. I have no idea why. I convinced myself I could speak fluent Polish and proceeded, for two weeks or so, to chat away to random strangers in the street in something akin to complete gibberish.

When I was younger my parents always used to tell me that they loved me with all "their heart and soul", I misheard this thinking they were saying with all there heart and salt. I had also being told that I was 70% water (dont know where from). So I put one and one together and decided that we were oceans because i had so much water in me and my parents obvisously loved me alot so they had to have lots of salt. Just like an Ocean.

It took me years before i figured out they used to say soul!

When I was a child I used to catch bumble bees with my bare hands. As long as my tongue was folded in my mouth so that it touched my top teeth I would be safe from the bees stings. It worked hundreds of bees into jars for a day then I would let them go. We wanted honey from the bees, we never did get any. I was never stung. No animals were hurt in this story at all.
Blessed Bee 2 you.

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.

in early elementary school years, I would always notice other's people's desks were shiner, and reflected what was above them.
I would always get sad when I saw my desk wasn't reflective like all theirs.
I thought that meant I wasn't as awesome as them or something was wrong with me...
until I found out the other desks looked reflective because they were at an angle, and since I was always sitting in front of mine, it was never at the right angle ^^;

When I was 5 we moved for the first time, I was under the impression that when you moved you just switched houses and couldn't take anything with you. So I filled my pillowcase with toys and asked my mom "I know I can't take everything, but can I just please take these toys at least."

A long time ago I picked up a strange battery at recess, and I belived that this battery gave me the power to control the wind, so I tried to teach the dry leafs and plastic bags to dance in the wind, and to teach feathers to fly!

A mischievous friend convinced his younger brother that the test for whether or not you were a robot was to chew on aluminum foil. If it hurt to do it, that was a reaction from the electrical current which powered you. The younger brother tested positive of course, and broke in to tears, for he did not want to be a robot.

My sister told me that I was born as a gorilla but changed into a little girl through the miracle of modern plastic surgery. She also told me not to feel bad, as there were several other 'conversions' in our neighborhood which she pointed out to me.
