When I rode my bicycle my mother always told me to eb careful of strangers. I didn't know what the word "stranger" meant, and I thought that strangers were the maintenance men who worked in my apartment development. Anytime I'd ride past the boiler room doors past a building (where the maintenance men kept their supplies), I'd go really fast in case one of them was there and tried to catch me.
There is a huge factory (which I now know is owned by Sunoco) next to the highway. Whenever we would drive by my mom would tell us that's where Batman lived. For years I thought Batman really lived there. Weird thing is, in all the movies he lives in a HUGE house, yet I still believed he lived in a huge pipe filled factory that shot out fire.
When I was little i thought that little elves lived in the street lights and would light the light with a match at night.
For some reason unknown to me, whenever I would walk down the street I would make sure that whoever I was walking with (usually my dad), would stay on the same sides of objects as me, such as signposts and mailboxes, I was convinced that if we passed such objects on different sides, I would dissapear from on the other side to my dad and go into another world exactly like ours so I would never know the difference.
I used to think that radio towers that have the huge white satellite round things was where the band would play from and the drummers would drum on the satellites(they looked like drums)
when i was little i thought that when you moved to a different house you would just trade houses with the other person
When I was a kid, a local window blind company's dellivery trucks had a sign on the back that read, "Careful, blind man driving." I thought they were so kind to hire the handicapped!
i used to believe that when you moved they would put your house on wheels and just pull it to a new place. I really wasn't even that young i was like nine and now i'm 13
I used to believe that there was a mansion in my neighbor's backyard. They had about an acre of woods, and the noises I thought were coming from 'the mansion' were really coming from some apartments behind their land. I don't even know where that idea came from! :-p
I used to believe pederstrian was a race
When i was a tiny lad, I used to think drug free zones were places where you can get drugs for free
I used to belive that when you moved, a big crane picked up your house and dropped it somewhere else.
When I was younger, I lived in the city. So, naturally I never saw a UPS man. When I was around 7yrs. old, I moved to a small town. I asked the neighbor kid about the UPS man and he told me that whenever I saw the UPS truck, I had to run. When I asked him why he told me that the UPS man was a child-stealer. For months, I would run in fear of the UPS man. Until one day, my mom saw me running away and told me the truth.
I used to believe that when you drove a car, the tires turned the earth, so it amazed me how two cars could pass each other. I thought it was because the road had two parts, one for each direction.
I used to think that robbers had keys to every house and that's how they got in to take your stuff
I have a cousin who has mental problems because of natural causes. But when I was a kid I used to think one of his neighbors threw a rock at his head which damaged his brain. I would frown at them every time I saw them.
I always thought that a little person lived inside each mailbox waiting to take my letter to its destination.
When i was about 8, i remember seeing a sign that said "Brat Roast this weekend" at a church. I thought they'd be roasting disobedient children. It didn't occur to me that "brat" was short for Bratwurst.
I remember being in the car when it was beginning to get dark and seeing the street lights turn on one by one. I thought that there was a massive room full of thousands of computers, one for each lamp and there was a man who had to switch them on individually. When I was about 7, we watched a 'Come Outside' video at school which explained that therre are sensors which can tell if iut is dark and switch them on. I couldn't wait to get out of school that day to tell my mum the 'truth'!
when i was younger my mum used to tell me and my brothers and sisters about a man who lived over the road from us called the sock-sniffer and she used to say when you walked past him he would steal your socks and sew them onto his jacket.......and i believed her.........o-m-g!!
