In pre-school I believed that pennies would come out of my cuticles if I cut them and I also believed that my nose was a sort of pouch that I could store small treasures in. Needless to say, my parents were called a few times after I had tried to store my treasures, i.e. seeds, small washers and the like, and had I had quite a time trying to retrieve them.

When I was little, I used to believe that everyone was in this huge movie that people bigger than us would watch. Since I thought this I would dress up and always act as if I were really on camera. My mom just thought that I was a total drama queen until I told her why I was doing it. She laughed and said that no one was watching us on some giant screen tv.

When I was about six years old (1960's), I believed the laugh track on television was other tv viewers laughing along with the program. I thought I could hear them through the television. Then I would laugh at completely inappropriate times believing that other viewers would wonder what that crazy kid was laughing at.

I used to think my family was royalty who stayed in a normal neighborhood to show our subjects that we cared about them. I wondered how the other royals could live in castles and not even care what happened to everyone else.

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.

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 a kid, i used to believe it was possible to spy someone through their own eyes and ears and that someone was spying on me that way. I would try not to look at my genitals while going to the bathroom and try to act cool when alone out of fear they would think i'm wierd.

When I was about 5 or 6, I used to think that I was the reencarnation of Jesus Christ, ┤cos I always thought I looked like him, my father┤s name is JosÚ and mother is Maria (Joseph and Mary, in portuguese). I┤m 20 now, and I swear, if nothing happens untill I am 33, I┤ll start wearing shoes and I┤ll finally cut my hair.

I used to believe everybody else disappeared when I wasn't there. When you'd visit relatives, I thought they were happy because I'd made them exist again. I also believed the entire world was dismantled and stored in warehouses for the night.

I believed I was magickal because I never caught poison ivy, but when my sister and I had played in it by accident she would get rashes and I wouldn't. Then "immunity" was a vocabulary word at school.

When I was 6 or 7 I used to think that my index and middle finger were space travellers from another planet who had their own tv show on earth. They "space walked" everywhere, each time I went out that was a new episode. And I would announce it by saying "index and middle go to The store" Or wherever we were going.
The show eventually got cancelled.

My mom used to think there was something wrong with her because she had to breathe, she didn't know everyone did it. I myself used to hate breathing, I thought it was annoying because you kept having to do it over and over.

I used to think that my family were the only people who wore underwear. There was no reasoning behind this - I just assumed it was true.

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
