When I was seven or eight, my mum made up this fib about a wizard named "Wizard Wiggle Wand" whose wand and hat would wiggle and he was Merlin's great-great-great-(I don't remember the exact number of greats)-nephew.
Being the gullible little soul I was, I believed her. She claimed that he did silly things like make the songbirds speak English, the ducks speak Spanish, the dogs sing (in English), our cat fly, cure all the pets at the vet, and turn the sheep pink.
She also claimed that when his magic wore off, you could feel "a buzzy feeling" in the air, like electricity. She was such a good liar that I could actually feel it in a psychosomatic way.
Eventually, she admitted to making "some of it" up.
I didn't actually believe this myself, but it would be funny if children believed that looking in funfair mirrors meant that you really had lost or put on weight!
When I was a child，I used to believe that my mom was some kind of prophet because she always knew everything I did!
I read a book about a girl who finds a magical umbrella that makes you able to fly and at the end of the book, it said, "Perhaps it has landed in someone's garden."
Then, I saw an umbrella in someone's garden and thought it was The umbrella.
I used to think my mom's purse had magic tricks inside it and i was afraid to open it
When I was 6 up to 8 I practiced my own imaginary Witchery I used to go in my Grandad's garage and pretend to make potions with saw dust, water and anything I could get my hands on in a giant mixing bowl which I pretended was a cauldron and I would try and conjure up spells to try and turn my ugly fat rotten so called step father into a bug so I could squash him dead!!! Hahaha no such figgin look, my mom did leave him in the end thank frig.
My Friend Jenna Told Me That She Had A Dream Where She Got Shrunk To The Size Of An Ant. I Told Her It Won't Really Come True.
When I was a child I used to believe in the magic
I used to believe that birthday presents just magically appeared before the giver's eyes all wrapped and tagged and the guests all had super x-ray vision that allowed them to know when our birthdays were and when and where to come. But when I was six I realized birthday presents are purchased like groceries and the guests have to be told when and where to appear.
When I was a child, I used to believe that if I looked at some object, I could move it using my mind, like in the movies of starwars.
when we were kids, my sisters and i had a superstition that while we rode home from one grandmother's house to our other grandparents' house where we stayed when visiting, if we kept our eyes closed and our teeth and fingernails hidden from the trees on each side of the road so they couldn't see the gleam from them, when we got there, our cousins would be visiting and we could play with them. it seemed to work every time!
When I was around six I had a book of magic tricks that was also a pop-up book that served to carry around little things used for performing the trick (you take them out of little pockets in the pictures in the book). Well, there was one picture that took place in a restaurant or something and there was a dollar sticking out of a character's pocket that was removable. Thinking it was for a trick, I removed it and the tab on the end of it says "Put it back, you thief!" I freaked out and shoved it back in the pocket, thinking the book had really saw me take the dollar and thought I'd been trying to steal! I was afraid to even look at that page for a while.
I used to believe that the background music in movies helped the actors do their stunts (i.e the music from e.t helped Elliot's bike take flight) and that if you copied the song in your head you could do the stunt. However, i tried the trick with my first bike and i didn't work. Bummer.
When i was very, VERY little, i used to believe in magic like wizardry, and stuff like that, so i took a stick off of the tree in my backyard and started to wave it around but sadly nothing happened. So, i just kept that belief until i was 9 years old, at that point i just gave up. But now, i really wish i kept my imagination, that way, i could still do what i love, .....................................................being a kid!!!!!!!!!!
I used to believe that if I spun around in my spinning chair fast enough I would be able to fly. Sometimes I got so dizzy that I thought I almost did fly!
I thought you could hypnotize people with a yoyo.
i believed that if i jumped down the stairs with an umbrella i would float around like marry poppins. i disproved this by learning it the hard way.
when i was younger my brother told me that if i left my old shoes on the front porch an ostrich would come by and replace them with a new pair
When I was little I though somewhere in the playground was a gate way into different 'magic lands' and that you had to preform a ritual to get in there. I still remember going to mermaid land and playing all by myself in the playground talking to myself and imaginary people, I didn't know why everyone stopped playing with me all of a sudden........
I used to believe that if I closed one eye, the people on that side couldn't see me.
