I used to think that locks had little men on trampolines. when it was unlocked they could bounce up and push a button that kept it unlocked but if you locked it the trampoline would lower and he couldn't reach the "unlock" button.
I used to think that we lived in a gigantic snow globe.
I remember once as a child thinking there was something wrong with me because my stomach would rise when I breathed in, and fall when I breathed out. I thought it was supposed to be the other way round, and used to spend time trying to "reverse" my faulty breathing.
I've just realised why I thought this - when squeezing into a tight place or clothing, people say "breathe in!"... surely it should be "breathe out"?
i used to believe that only i could think and anybody else could'nt do anything unless i was there.
I used to believe that people around me could read my thoughts. I then became insecure of what i thought, and if i had a thought that might offend someone else who didn't know what i meant by it, i would try to cover it up and make excuses for those reading my mind. It got to the point where i would send false information to others, and then snicker at what an evil thing i had done. I have no idea how i thought this, maybe i was just a really paranoid boy.
When I was a young teen, I was convinced I was a fairy. I thought I had control over ice. I could make it snow and everything.
My grandmother is a strong catholic and I was convinced I was going to be the "next" vigin mary. I thought I was pregnant all the time and would sit and cry. No one knew why. Until today! Haha!
When I was 10, I half believed that on my 11th birthday I was going to get an acceptance letter from Hogwarts. When it didn't come, I told myself there had been a mix-up and I would get my letter a year late.
While walking home from school with a fellow neighbor kid, around 8yrs old, he began telling me a story...He had said that he was at the local town track and his family was racing around it. Well, since he was losing, he told me that he snuck away and drank gasoline and it made him run faster to win the races. I believed for a few years that if you drank gas you would run faster. (Never tired it though, thank god!)
I used to believe that if I wanted to, I could take a plane up to the sky, and sit on a cloud without going through. For hours Id be swinging on my swing in my backyard staring at the sky, day dreaming of sitting on a cloud.
When I was little, I thought you had to put a finger under the water to make it hot.
I used to think I was a Waterbender (ya know, like Avatar) because when we went to the public pool and I was playing with the water, I noticed that if you push up under the water, the water jumps up a bit. Uneducated little kid I was, I thought "woah, I can control water!" I know now it was just displacement of water and I'm not a superhuman. I also thought this because I could see, talk, and hear underwater. Blissfully unaware that everyone ELSE can see, talk, and hear underwater too.
when i was six or seven i used to believe that i was a beautiful horse that could run as fast as the wind. i had long hair that i flipped back and forth like a mane. i galloped everywhere i went.
My parents told me that I was born with a tail. I believed them. Forever.
(I guess it got lobbed off sometime). I always imagined it to be like a dinosaur tail--they probably meant something cute like a cat tail.
I used to believe the whole world was an illusion and that only I was real... The whole world was an illusion much as in matrix... but it was a physical illusion intended to study me by alien scientists.
I used to try and look around corners to areas they maybe forgot to 'texture' yet, or maybe to places where the 'actors' forgot to pull their suits on and looked like aliens.
I used to believe I was the ghosts when I played pac-man and that I had to run from the little circle who ate the dots
In those days before everyone had air conditioning, I had a fan in my bedroom window. And when I talked into it and it made the robot voice, I thought that anyone else who had a fan in their window would be able to hear it...like a walkie talkie? lol
When I was little, after watching Snow White I went outside to play in the garden and I pretended to talk to the birds - imagine my surprise when they started talking back! I'd stayed out all day talking with my new feathered friends asking them about their adventures, and when I informed my mum of my activities she'd tut and say I was being silly.
One day when I was talking to the birds I heard one laughing at me - I looked up to see my gran laughing out the window while my mum and uncle where crouched down below her pretending to be these new 'friends'... I was 6 and had been having these conversations everyday for the past few weeks! lol
When I was about 8 years old that I was the best footballer of all time in the whole world. Well that proved quite different.
When I was 5 or so, I thought there was a boy on the exact opposite side of the world. He and I could never never never (repeat "never" a few hundred times) be asleep at the same time.
So when I over slept, he got to stay up late, and when I stayed up late, he got to oversleep.
