I used to believe that you heard the sea through the large sea shells I collected as a child. One night I was convinced I heard the clanking sounds of an anchor being dropped and told my whole class the next day, I was glad my teacher did not spoil this conviction out me out...
I got a mouth full of ocean water in my mouth when I was three or four, and quickly asked my parents who put the salt in the water. I also developed my own theories. I used to believe that the reason why the ocean was salty is because people would lean off the docks and pour table salt in the water.
i used to believe that the sky was the bottom of the ocean, and we were at the bottom looking up, and that if you got the bottom of the actual ocean you'd fall out of the "sky"
When I was a kid, I thought that the ocean was salty because little men dumped a giant saltshaker into it every night when everyone was asleep.
After having "Voyage of the Dawn Treader" (sequel to the lion the witch and the wardrobe) read to me I was terrified by the magical pool which turned anything that touched it to gold. For about a year I had to remind myself that if the water in my shower was like this it would have turned the shower head gold on the way. While this helped, I was never entirely sure whether or not this would stop the flow of water before it could hit me, and I never liked taking both eyes off the shower head at once.
I used to believe all liquids were water-based with things added to it to make different kinds of liquids.
I Used To Think That Jacuzzis Used To Have Sharks And I Would Never Get In One.
I used to believe that the whit foam on the waves in the sea was old mermaid hair! cccccrazy, I thought everyone thought that!
i used to think that the foam in the ocean was whipped cream. until i tasted it
For years I believed that there where populations of tiny, tiny people who lived around any water at all. They also lived in a vastly different time warp where time itself was super fast, so 1 of our seconds was a lifetime. So wiping up a spill on the counter involved wiping out the water supply for countless cities, and spilling water created huge tsunami's that wiped out whole civilizations.
I used to think that mud puddle water would taste like chocolate milk. That's what my big sister told me. She also made me get down on my hands and knees and try it. Shock and disillusionment...and a gritty aftertaste!
When I was a little girl, we went to a public pool that has fish in it. we drove a good 200 miles to go swim at this pool, and right as we get there my grandma tells all of us grandkids, "If you get in the water the little fishes will swim up your butt!" needless to say Nobody went swimming that day!
when i was about ten i thought a city was under the lake by my house and people who could breathe under water lived there and they were smarter until my sister said i was stupid and fish that could talk lived under the water and eat little boys and i couldn't swim in that lake until i was thirteen
When I was young, I read a book that said the world was 80% covered in water. I would look at a map and was always confused since it didn't look like it. Finally one day I decided that the reason was because the back of the map must have been covered in water and nobody put it on the map since there wasn't any islands there!
When I was younger I used to go the beach a lot and everytime I picked up a shell near the ocean it would make a loud noise. I thought it was angry that I was trying to take one of its shells so I always put it back.
I used to believe that helicopters dropped salt in the ocean to make it salt.
(I also believe my father had something to do with this...)
when i was a kid there was a island in my creek that only appeared when the water was down, but me and my friends thought it would ust rise from the depths every year. lol.
When we were younger, my cousins and i would go on vacation every year at the beach. When we'd run out to the ocean, our parents would yell at us, "Be careful of the undertow!" As young as we were, we thought they were saying "undertoad" instead of "undertow". I always imagined the king of all frogs waiting just beneath the surface to drag me away to sea.
I used to look for raisins in the ocean when mum told me to be careful of the currents
When I was little, my dad told me that everytime it rain it was because God was mad at me and that he was spitting me for being bad...used to cry every single time it rained
