When I was younger (even though I have a twin sister) I would hide behind my door and stare at my family between the crack because I thought they were robots... That they couldn't be real because I was real and they were not like me.
I used to believe all down-syndrome people were related and that they were just a really big family I didn't think they were any different from normal people just thought they were all related
When I was little I didnt recognise people by what color/race they were but by their hair. Instead of describing some one as white, black, ect I would say the curly hair girl of the blond girl. It was years before I even really noticed race. When your young things like that dont matter and its sad that sometimes when you grow older you do notice.
I used to believe that if someone hit my back while I was making a face, my face would stick that way forever! One time my Grandma hit my Grandpa when he was making faces at me during dinner. He pretended to be stuck. I am still traumatized!
I used to believe that it was only acceptable to wear a bathrobe and slippers if you were a girl. My parents made me wear slippers all the time, and bathrobe with my pajamas, so while I obeyed the rules, I always felt a little weird. I remember asking my mom why I had to wear them, I'm not a girl. She just brushed it off and said that all good boys wear robes and slippers. Eventually I stopped caring and noticed that guys do wear them, just not as much as girls do
My Step daughter kept annoying me about the tattos on my arms and so I finally broke down and told her that when I was her age my mom told me not to draw or write on myself and I didnt listen, a few days later she was crying hysterically and I asked her what was wrong and she told me that her little cousin was drawing on her back and she went on to explain that she cant reach to wash her own back so it will be there forever !!!!!! hahahaha
I used to think my uncle Richard was Desi Arnaz. Don't ask me why, because I have no freaking idea. But a couple of days ago I looked at him and thought, "Hey, he actually sort of looks like Desi Arnaz..."
Mum would tell us that if we made a silly face and the wind changed then our faces would stay like that forever
This is probably common but I will tell my tale. When my brother said a classmate of his wore panty hose one day I imagined someone wearing a garden hose for pants. I don't think my brother bothered to correct me.
my mom used to tell me if i made a silly face at my sister that it would stick and i'd look like that forever. so one day i was goofing off with my sister when my face 'stuck' and i went around the house with googlie eyes and my tougne sticking out and showed my mom. boy was she scared when i told her i was stuck like that.
When I was little I was facinated by dimples because only some people had them and others didn't. For some reason I decided that people got dimples because when they were in their mother's bellies before they were born somebody had poked them in their cheeks too often and that's how they were created. Don't ask me how they did it but that's what I believed...
When ever I had to put on a Turtle neck shirt as a kid, maybe 6 or 7 years old, I would believe it was chocking me because it was too tight. I really believed that it was strangling me when i was wearing it. So one day my mom , desperate to get me dresed in a hurry, told me that it wasnt a turtle neck, that in fact, it was a lion neck. I thought that lions were brave and strong ( I also really like the movie 'The Lion King' at that time) so I thought it should be alright. I believed that until i stoped wearing them cause the look goofy.
when i waz little i used to think braces were jewery you put on your teeth!
I used to think underwear was somethink you would wear under your pants. but thanks to my brother, everything is all straigtened out now
when i was little i used to think that only cool, or pretty people went to high school or grew up. I didnt have any other brothers or sisters and my parents wheren't from here, so i had no one to tell me other wise. Since everyone on tv and in the movies where so pretty and cool, and the kids would always make fun of me, i though i would never grow up or go to high school.
when I was younger I would watch the old cartoons and would belivethey really did make invisablity cream that would make you dissapper when you rubed it all over you. I told myself when I get older I was going to buy that cream and turn invisable. I was going to get even with the bullys in my school. The thing we belive as kids=)
I used to belive that tights were things that girls wore to hide the scales on their legs....that was when i was in the "oooh-girl yucky stage" of my youth.
I had a really little pair of short shorts when i was 7, and i thought that if someone else wore them then they'd become me !
when i was a child and someone made me really angry or frustrated i would take these black sun glasses that my grandmother bought me and place them tightly over my eyes and through my strawberry blonde curls. And at that exact moment i believed that no one.no one! could see me or do anything to me. I was hidden and invisible. why did the world have to prove otherwise? Sometimes, even though i know i am seen, i can put on my sunglasses let my memories drift back to the old days(though i was born in the eighties) and know that there is some kind of barrier between me the shades and you. Thanks Gramma=) love -kat
When I was in elementary school, I really wanted to be a cheerleader. I had seen some cheerleaders perform and they had put tiny bells on their shoes by threading them through the shoelaces. I thought all cheerleaders wore bells on their shoes all day long.
I decided that I would be "cool" like the cheerleaders, so I put a bell on each of my shoes. I wore these 2 small bells to school on my shoes the next day. I discovered it wasn't so "cool" to have bells on your shoes at school!!! I jingled with every step as I walked the halls of school. It became so annoying to everyone that my teacher asked me to try and walk softly, so I wouldn't make so much noise!!! How embarassing!!! LOL.
