When i was little i use to think my backyard was a jungle so i never went to the backyard without my little safari hat on and my plastic sword...
My yard used to be filled w/ long grass. My best friend at the time and I thought that this grass was wheat. Once we even tried to make bread by taking the grass, mixing it with water and leaving it to "bake" in the sun
When I was I young I believed that it was the trees that made all the wind. I used to lay in the grass watching the trees doing their work and especially on a hot summers day enjoy their special gift: a breeze!
one time i was on a boat and it was windy and i asked "How can it be windy without any trees?" i always used to think that squrels used to control wind
All flowers had exactly five petals and two leaves.
As a little girl i was thinking that adults were growing like plants do. I even imagined how my parents were showing though the grey asphalt(ground) before my building. t
When I was younger I asked my aunt once how trees grow and she told me that there was water inside trees to help them grow. So I believed for the longest time that if you ever picked bark off of a tree water would come rushing out and flood the world!
because the tree's branches looked like roots,
I used to think that in the winter the "otherworld" underground had a strange summer! something to do with a alter-world. TOO many science fiction no doubt!
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!"
