As a girl, I read lots of books about UFOs (pretty much the same type I still like to read, secretly). And I loved to read in bed, but then, of course, the lights had to go out --
One of the bedroom windows was small and high, and the light fell on the wall right across from me. At one point, I noticed that the shadow wasn't of a tree's branches any more, but of an oval shape on a dark stalk. It looked like the shadow of E.T.'s head and long neck. I stared at it for hours, frozen in fear. It would sway back and forth; it would vanish abruptly, and rise slowly back into view. This happened night after night.

I was so sure this was an alien. What else could it be? What would cast a shadow like that, or move like that? Eventually, I lay there long enough to figure it out. The alien's body was a metal pod buried just beneath the soil in the garden. It withdrew its head in the morning, and extended its neck at night. The alien was an investigator, not harmful or very friendly, but there to study human beings. There was a forcefield around my house that kept it from getting in, but it watched at my window anyway. It could sense if I thought too much about it, and that was why it sometimes ducked out of sight.

Today -- and I mean literally today, it took me that long to figure it out! -- I'm pretty sure it was the distorted shadow of a streetlamp that used to stand a few yards away.

When I was younger my older brother told me that I was a vulcan(from star trek). I believed him too because my ears were slightly pointed. He told me that one day they would come and take me back to their planet. It was a couple of years before I learned the truth, that star trek wasn't real.

My father used to watch a lot of those shows about people getting abducted by aliens. It got to the point where I believed that if I slept facing the window I would be abducted. If I wanted to sleep on my right side I would put my pillow at the other side of the bed so I could sleep comfortably without being abducted.

I used to think that roaches were aliens because it was hard to kill them. I'm still not so sure I was wrong.

When I was little, Some other kid showed me a book. In the book it showed a picture of an alien and it said that aliens attacked a country. It was a fake book, but at the time I thought it was real. So when people said that there were no such thing as aliens, I corrected them and said that they were real, and I had proof.

We used to have this weird vegetable steamer that looked a tad bit like a mini UFO. I always thought that it actually was one.
I was playing with it a few weeks later and broke it. I started crying and screaming because i thought the aliens would come out and eat me.

When I was younger I used to talk to our fridge and whenever my mother asked what I was doing I claimed that I was talking to aliens. I thought all the appliances were aliens!

I was 7 when I saw "E.T" for the first time and it scared me so much. I thought E.T. lived my shower, so every night before I could go to sleep, my Mom and Dad had to call into the shower to see if E.T. would answer. When he didn't, I could finally fall asleep.

When I was around 7, everytime I played Gauntlet on my Nintendo system the TV would flash with static and I could hear voices of someone talking. I was convinced that those were aliens! I showed this to my friends and they heard, saw and believed it too.
I still don't know what caused it but it probaly had something to do with a radio antenna, although there were none in the neighborhood...

when i was about 5-9 i used to think that life wasnt real and that we humans were just acting out a story that some alien mom was reading to her kid, and then when we went to sleep, she stopped reading for a little bit, and if anyone found out, thats why they died.

I used to truly believe in aliens and i tried to convince my little brother to jump from his bedroom window, three stories to the concrete beneath on the premise that the 'invisible alien ship would catch him' it's a good thing he decided not to at the last minute, he was only 5 or so and i think i would be in jail right now! Unfortunately he does still remember but thankfully he never told my parents.

I used to believe that aliens lived in my bathtub. Well, they weren't so much in the bathtub itself. The noise that the water made when it was draining was their call, and it made them come up through the drain.

After awhile of this I started to get out of the bath, dry off and dress before draining the water, and when I would pull out the stopper I ran out of the bathroom really quickly, before it had the chance to make that noise.

I believed that until about 5th grade.

In fifth grade, my friend Cheryl and I told everyone at school that we were aliens. We'd been sent to Earth as infants, we said, to be raised in an Earthling culture and collect information. Now the experiment was over, and our real parents were going to come in their spaceship next Tuesday night and take us back to our home planet.

No one believed us, but I think we did have several people convinced that we believed it ourselves.

After watching a show on UFO's one night, I was scared of Aliens coming to get me, and I was afraid they'd come with thier Spaceship and abduct me. So every night for about 2 years I stare out the window, dead scared of A UFO landing, untill one nightI figured out I could close the shudders. Man, I was stupid!

At night, when i lay in my bed, next to the window, if i were restless, i would sometimes sit up and look through the window. Every time i looked through the window, the next door neighbors lights turned on (This was just a coincidence). But i thought that they were spying on me. Somehow, i got the idea that they were aliens.
