When the first Harry Potter movie came out I had no idea it was made up. One day my friends and I took some old broomsticks, mounted them, and jumped. Unfortunately we landed back on the ground one second later. That was the end of my Quidditch streak.
I used to think that when you lick your elbow. You magically change into the opposite sex. And it's like you were always that sex. Me and my friends tried it for years because we wondered what being a girl was like.
We kept doing it even when we were put in a private Japanese boarding school at age 14. Then, about a month after we came to the school, my friend T.J. claimed that he did it but he didn't turn into a girl. We all had separate dorms and he went to his, got his girlfriend's uniform, some breast forms, a bra, panties, and a wig. Put them on, and came out the next day wearing them and insisted his name was Tyreesha. (T.J.'s real name was Tyler Jeron).
Me and my other friends got jealous, did it too and also dressed like girls. Then we got in trouble and had to wear it for the rest of the semester (18 weeks). And we had to act like girls. e.g. Go to the girls restroom, paint our nails, wear a dress to the dance, wear high heels, and (worst of all) our student information was changed to say we were females.
back in elementary whenever we got school pictures the caption on the handouts always read "if you think this picture is special now, think of how special it will be ten years from today" and I used to think that after ten years from that exact moment something very special, magical would happen. I waited and waited....
Well.. you know how when you look at someone who's wearing glasses, you can sorta see your reflexion in them? I used to think that they could also see what's happening in behind them because they reflected in the back! haha And so I thought they always could see what you're doing even if they had their back to you! I was a lil paranoid ;)
I used to think that if I acted like a had a Superpower (e.x flying), I would eventually develop that Superpower. I spent days jumping and skipping everywhere in hopes I would "fly".
I had an uncle who was a pretty good amatuer magician. He could perform a wide variety of impressive card tricks and optical illusions. But the one that really got me, terrified me, really, was the old "seperating thumb trick."
there was this really funny belief among all us friends that if you put the remains of a sharpened pencil in a mug of water,it would turn into an eraser by the next day!so all of us kids would go the terrace with glasses of water and pencil sharpenings!
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 I was younger my grandfather would pretend he could make me disappear and all the grown ups would pretend not to see me till he made me appear again. that was very upsetting to me untill we started doing it to my little brother then i was in on it. sorry bro.
When I was a child Iused to believe in magic hands..The only person that had magic hands was my mother..It's true. Once I have a stomachache.She putted her hand on my stomach , and my pain relief had gone..automatically.I asked her if everyone may had that magic..and she smiled sweetly.Yes,a mother had, she said.
i used to believe (and i still do) that if and eyelash came out on its own and you made a wish upon tht eyelash the wish would come true. and it has always worked for me so i still do it =)
I used to believe that if you stand on a tree stump and turn around and say a wish that it would come true. I was confused when it didn't work. I just made a full out of my self.
When I was about 4 or 5 my pop used to pretend that he'd stolen my nose and would throw it down the stairs. I would cry my eyes out until he went and got it and put it back on my face!
When I was little, I always thought that trick where you saw someone in half, I thought they really were cut in half, just that they didn't feel it. But when they come out all right, I was always surprised. Either that or I would be covering my eyes.
I used to believe that I can change the upcoming sequence of events by just making up what's gonna happen and deciding it will happen.
Sometimes it worked! ^_^
There were no writers behind children's books--they just magically appeared at the library!
I used to believe that I had magic powers. whenever I went out and the wind was blowing, I thought I had made it happen. Me and my friend (who also, coincidentally, had super powers) would get our energy from a "magic" well under a tree. I thought that, if I ever got good enough, I could try body snatching for fun. This was in Fourth grade, which says ALOT.
I used to believe if I concentrated hard enough I could move stuff.
I thought soap suds were clouds, and also, I would mix shampoo and lotion to gether I thought i made an invisiblity potion (i saw on some show) and I poured it on my self and went to school and i didnt say anything cuz I thought they couldnt see me!!!
I use to believe that kissing your elbow would make you change your sex when you woke up the next day.
