I used to believe that if I climbed the mountains I could touch the sky!
I used to think an earthquake was an "earth cake" and I would picture a big cake made of dirt. So when my parents were watching the news about the earthquake that happened in our town on TV, I would think the ground would shake a lot and make a cake shaped thing. I never knew how it was possible
I grew up in the city, where at night there are a lot of city lights, but very few stars in the sky. After a camping trip, where there were no city lights but so, so many stars in the sky, I believed that city lights were stars that fell to the ground.
when I was child I used to belive that when I was sitting in the back seat of the car and at night, the moon was following me.
I used to believe that volcanoes were filled with ladybugs, and that a jazz band lived inside the bottom. When the volcano erupted it was the ladybugs dancing to the jazz bamd
When I was about 5, we used to go to my grandmother's house. She lived in a village, where was a place, where the was an echo. We always shouted, and heard the resound. Once I asked: How it works? What is this phenomenon exactly? She said: On the otherside there's a child, who shouts back the same words. (It was easier to say this for a little child.) I always tried to see him, who "lived" next to the forest on the otherside, but actually I couldn't make it out whether there was standing or not.xD
I used to believe that when the sky was pink, late at the afternoon, the angels made cookies!
when I was little I used to think that if I dug down deep enough on the sand at the beach I could dig my way to china. I was crushed when I discovered I would have to travel through molten rock to get there
When I looked up in the sky and could see the clouds moving I used to think that it was the earth spinning.
I was deathly afraid of moss. I think it reminded me of bugs which I was also deathly afraid of. Outdoor time was fun in my family.
I used to believe when i was about 6-10 years old, that every country was a planet and we were conect for a transparent tube and we could transport us through them. I was so funny
I used to believe that i can turn the world upside down by looking through my legs while standing.
I used to believe that sky ends at the horizon and by crossing it we can go to another world..
As a child, I used to believe that the ocean was created by ancient people spitting on the ground, and I used to thought that the wind was created by people breathing all the time! I also thought that animals were made by people and they just put weird sounds into the animal and that's why they make weird sounds!
Until I turned 13, I thought the signs up in the mountains: "Watch for falling rock" was warning people about a murderous Indian named Falling Rock. Scared me senseless.
For some reason, I used to believe the sky was the beach (the clouds were the sand and the blue part was the ocean- I'm not sure what I thought about cloudy days)
When I was about five or six years old, I believed the sea was a man made phenomenon. I imagined that men actually dug the sea many years ago like that was their career.
There's a restaurant in the town I live in called Cafe Aroma. For a while now, there's been a drawing on the special-of-the-day chalk board. When I was about seven or eight, my mom caught me staring for a really long time at the chalk board and asked why I found it so interesting. I responded with, "I was looking at the chalkboard. Those are such pretty mountains!" That's when she told me that they weren't mountains. I looked back and, a couple minutes later I realized she was right. The drawing is of a naked lady laying down. She told me that it had been modeled after the mountains nearby that looked like a lady lying down. Since then, until I was about twelve, I thought that mountains were really just giant women who had laid down to sleep, but died because people started tearing them apart to make towns on them and I frequently looked for their faces. I was later told the differences and similarities between mountains and women.
I didn't used to think that Mount Rushmore was a real place because I could never understand how the rocks could see those men and be able to shape into something that looked like them. I figured somebody just made up Mount Rushmore and it turned into the biggest, mostly widely-believed lie.
When I was little I used to lay on the ground and look up at the sky. I swore I could see the earth turning, because I thought clouds were stationery so the movement I was seeing must be the earth spinning slowly.
