i used to believe that the sun and the moon were in the atmosphere of the earth...
I used to love to stare at the moon when I was younger. My mum told me if I point at the moon, my ear would drop off / be cut off.
I had visions of a moon man (obviously with a face like the moon) coming down and slicing off my ears with his moon knife.
I'm 22 now. I still won't point at the moon.

When I was a child I lived in the Caribbean and I loved looking at the stars. I was sure I could hear the stars twinkleing.

It is the sounds that the frogs and the crickets are making" She was right.

I used to believe that I lived in a town called Germany in a country called Earth, but I just could not figure out what planet I was on. I asked my mom what the name of the planet was and she replied "Earth" and I remember thinking that she was a total idiot. I just walked off and concluded that I was on Pluto, that being the only planet name I could remember.
