When I was a child I was told if I smell red-weed flower and put it very near my eyes I would go blind. And I still believe that. Never smell those flowers, even I like them .. just in case :)
My grandfather and I planted a tree. It was only a few inches high, and he told me that if I were to jump over it every day, that I would always be able to jump over it. The important part was to NEVER miss a day, or the whole cause would be lost. Not only did I believe- but I actually jump over it every day for several months!
When i was little i always wanted a dog so i would blow those danddy lions and i would hope my wish would come true but one day my dad told me that im doing it wrong thats why my wish hasent come true he said you have to eat them so i put one in my mouth and thought it taseted nasty then he started to laugh and said i was just kidding but hey i endded up getting a dog!
I thought that wood was made out of people. So when my dad insisted on me helping him nail wood together, I would say "sorry" each time I would hit the nail into the people.
I used to believe that if I planted orange seeds,apple seeds,and flower seeds together there would be a tree with apples,organges,and flowers on it.
I must have pulled flowers from my grandmothers Fushia bush because I was told if you touch the long stamen in the centre of the flower you would die. At 66 years I still cannot bring myself to touch it.
well...when i was less then 10 i used to fight with bushes.it was a kind of game...plants were my enemies and i used to cut them with a stick.bigger were liders and my whorse opponents...sometimes flowers, and young trees...i was a cruel warrior...;0
When my cousin was younger, we taught her to be polite and wave and say hi to people that said hi to her. So when she looked out the window and saw trees swaying.. she waved at them because she thought they were waving at her!
I have a very good memory.
I hardly ever put things that weren't supposed to be eaten in my mouth. My mum agrees with this. But once i ate some kind of 'succulent' plant, and threw up for three days straight. I remember still why i did it, and only when i told my mum why i did it about 4 years ago (when i was 14) did i realise how weird my reason was. I was pretending these round leaves were money.
Once when I was a kid, I planted some apple seeds, hoping to grow apples. I didn't know then that apples grow on trees. What I sort of expected to come up from each seed was a vertical stem about one or two feet high, topped off by a single apple. I envisioned no leaves on such a plant. Once it produced its single apple on top, it was finished growing and nothing more would ever become of that plant, so I thought.
I found a root sticking out of the ground one day and I thought it was a dinosaur bone. I would spend hours trying to dig it up everyday, while dreaming of how famous I would be.
One day we were driving and we smelled something aweful. My parents told me it was a "chicken plant." I missunderstood and whenever something stunk...I figured a "chicken plant" was growing near. I found out about 4yrs. later that it was a chicken plant where they proscess chickens. I was so embarrassed. I had told all of my friends about the stinky "chicken plant!"
i Used to belive that if roses were yellow it ment that someone had peeded on them when the were growing, and if they were red it ment they grew up nomarly
When we used to go on holiday, my mum would point out the "wild flowers" in the countryside as we drove past. Assuming them to have large teeth like "wild" animals, I would lower in my seat a little and lock the door.
when i was about 7 or 8 years old, i accidentally swallowed the seed of a calamansi fruit (really really small round version of the lime fruit, except a notch sweeter). i told my guardian about it and she said that i have to get it out of my body immediately because a calamansi plant will grow inside my body overnight. it took my mom about a couple of hours or so to reassure little ol' me that that wasn't gonna happen.
I used to think that cattails (you know.. they grow on the riverbanks, etc) tasted like corndogs.
I never ate one, though. Promise.
I used to believe that all things people eat or use (money and cars) all came from trees or plants i never realized otherwise until i was about 6 years old. I found this out by asking my mom how a tree could hold a car!! I alos figured it out by asking my dad why he went to work if he could just get money off a tree.
When i was little i used to believe that mother nature was a rich woman who went around the world planting seeds to make babies!
*old grandad voice* when i was young my dad showed me the Dr who shows. very entertaining till one day my mum suggested we go down the garden to get in the "garlics". the site of a 5 year old doin the "exterminate" stil brings tears to her eyes
When I was little I was afraid to cross a field with dandelions in it because I thought the dandelions were real lions and that they would attack me.
