When we were younger my cousin had me convinced that he came from a toothbrush planet and could change into a toothbrush at wiil. He explained that boys were blue toothbrushes and girls were pink. He made me swear never to tell anyone or he'd be taken back to his 'home planet!'

When I was a kid I would always see these little yellow lights at my window. I was convinced that my neighbors across the street were aliens and were pointing lasers at me to collect data.

Much to my dismay, and my mother's hilarious pleasure, they were just fireflies.

I used to think aliens were going to come into my house and abduct me so I tied a rope around my ankle and attached it to the bed so they couldn't drag me out of the house in the middle of the night when I was asleep. I called it my "alien catcher."

I used to believe that the red balls on power lines were accidentally left by alien children when they came to play on earth.
I used to daydream about what fun they must have had. This was on a long ride to a town we had to go to often, so it was a regular thing for me.

When I was about 5 years old, my cousin and I used to tell people that we were half "martians" and every year on our birthday they came and picked us up in the spaceship to take us to our "mars-parties" and we were gone for a month but to the "earthlings" it was only 1 day.

When I first heard of the movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" I thought that the Third Kind was the name of the alien race on it. I figured humans were the First Kind but wasn't sure who the Second Kind would be..

I live near an airport so planes fly over my house all the time. However at night I used to sound like they flew slower. I was convinced it was aliens hovering over my house. Espcecially the late at night flights.

When i was little i thought everyone except me was an alien but covered themselves in human form so i wouldn't see them, so I would pretend to be doing something and turn around really quickly to catch them out, i never did.

When I was about five or so my dad had a friend who had a daughter who was sixteen. The daughter told me that if the wind was blowing, it meant there were aliens on the roof, and the wind was their spaceships' fans, and they were blowing to keep the machinery cool, like a computer fan. She said if I went outside when the wind was blowing the aliens would abduct me. I was terrified of this for years; my parents had to literally drag me out of the house if they wanted to go somewhere when it was windy.
Then one day I got up my courage and went to look for the aliens. The wind was blowing really hard, but when I looked up on the roof there were none. Then it hit me that I had been had.

My older brother was a big Dr.Who fan (80's scifi show. very weird) Anyhow, we all grew up in the Upper Pennisela of Michigan, which means TONS of snow every winter. When we would walk up to meet our bus for school, we would encounter the chunks of snow that fell off from under our parents car's. Our older brother would tell my younger brother and i that they were alien eggs from Dr.Who and we had to jump on them and smash them or they would hatch and kill us. We jumped on those things every winter for years.

I believed I was an alien from Saturn. I told my friends and family that I used to ride my bicycle on the rings of my home planet.

I used to believe that when my parents were angry with me that it was a sure indication that they had been bodysnatched by aliens. I would try and sneek up on them late at night while they were watching television. I was sure that if I was quite enough I would catch them with their masks off!

When I was really small and just saw one of the Aliens movies I was convinced that if I didn't sleep with my mouth covered by a sheet I'd be facehugged in my sleep. Even now I'm so into the habit I can't sleep if I don't have the sheet or quilt up to my nose.

When I was a kid we lived near some hills that had several televistion broadcasting antennas. I asked my mother what they were, and she said "they are aliens, and they've landed and come to take over the earth." Everytime I saw them I was fascinated and terrified.

I got given a box of slime marked "alien puke" and asked if E.T. was all right.

I used to believe that everybody around me were aliens in human guise and that they were conspiring to take me with them, and "alienate" (in that other sense) me. I also thought they could read my mind, so I tried to blank my mind whenever I saw anyone staring at me suspiciously. And yeah, that included my parents and my big brother.
