I cried and cried and cried.

We had a tree near our house when I was little, and I was scared of it. I called it the Sorry Tree. I even had a dream that it smashed up our house once.
someone once told me that if you picked dandelions you would wet the bed.

I was convinced that paper could only be made out of Birch trees (because they had white bark).
In my house we've always had a fig tree in our living room and when i was about 5 i noticed that if you pulled off a leaf or twig, a white liquid came out. After seeing me rip a few leaves off the tree to watch it 'bleed', my mother told me that if i touched the white stuff i would be poisoned and shrivel up like a prune. Seeing that my hands were covered in the stuff i instantly burst into tears, imagining myself slowly drying up into a human raisin and how i wouldnt live to see another day of kindergarden. Thankfully i survived, but i was convinced from then on that if i so much as came in contact with the fig tree again i would surely become a prune!

When I was small I my Mom told me that if I put a bit from a Pussy Willow tree into my ear.. one would grow out of it. When my neighbor cut down his tree, I pushed one far into each ear, in order to perserve my favorite neighborhood tree. Those poor nurses had to fight tooth and nail to get them out.. I wasn't letting them kill my trees!
This is actually my dad's belief. My grandma has always kept a garden and when my dad was little, he thought that the hibiscus flowers were actually called hot biscuits!
I once wanted to plant a garden, and I thought that all I had to do, was pick flowers off the bushes outside our apartments (I wanted a garden of these flowers) and stick their stems in the ground and water them and they'd grow. Our upstairs neighbors passed by and asked what I was doing, I said planting flowers and asked them to tell me if they saw them growing.
I used to really believe that if you blew all of the seeds off of a dandelion in one breath that you could have any wish you wanted. I figured out that it wasnt true when I destroyed every dandelion in our yard wishing that my grandpa would come back to life. :( Obvously I didn't get my wish. Stupid dandelions.
I used to think that the flower, called bugenveilia (i dont know how to spell it, but it is spelt really weird.), i always thought that it was booger vanilla, and now i can not call it by the real name, it sounds too weird.
