In my preschool, I had a friend named Katie. She had lice, and to get it all out, they shaved her head. I thought my friend Katie had turned into a little leprechaun boy! I asked her if she was, and thats why we're not friends today. :) (Currently 7th Grade)
Up until I was about 10, my dad always called hair gel "Brokaw" because of Tom Brokaw on the news, and how he always had his hair gelled. My brother and I thought that Brokaw was another name for hair gel and called it that.
my younger brother after his 1st day at school announced that he now knew the difference between boys and girls - boys have laces in their shoes and girls have buckles. still makes us chucklt to this day (28yrs later!!)
This isn't quite a belief, but when I was very young the only movie I'd watch was Disney's Beauty and the Beast and all I would wear was dresses. Whenever my mother bought my a new dress, I would be immensly proud of it, and walk up to strangers in the grocery store checkout line and proclaim "Dis is my Booty dress!" and spin around for approval. (I could not pronounce Beauty).
When I got home after buying a dress, I would go infront of a mirror and tell my mother "I Booty!" I never relized until recently what people found so funny about that phrase.
I used to believe that if I wore my brothers' old clothes I'd turn into a boy, which was clearly what had happened to them. I wore nothing but dresses and skirts 'til I was 8.
My sister used to tell me that if you wore "boxing shoes" that you would be able to run faster. Of course later in life I became aware that they were just regular sneakers.
For a long time when i was little, i never made faces (like put my nose up like a pig) while i was outside and the wind was blowing, because my aunties and uncle told me that if ou do that, then your face will stay like that forever. My aunties even told me that they knew a girl in their class at school who had done that, and that she always had a screwed up face because she'd done just that.
When I was younger, my mom used to tell me that if you turn on a hairdryer and put it in front of your face, your face becomes all screwed up...and you'll get ugly...
To prevent this from happening, i would alwayz cover my face when my mom blow dried my hair, and pray to god i won't get ugly...what a risk i took :p
My brother used to believe that he mustn't wash his hair on the same day that he had a haircut - it'd wash his haircut out.
As a kid, when I was first told that I would grow, outgrow my clothes, and need nwe ones, it was a disquieting and fearsome prospect. I envisioned that one day I would be taken to a clothing store naked because I'd outgrown my old clothes and couldn't wear them anymore.
When i was about 3 i would play hide and seek with my brother and his friends, i believed that if i closed my eyes, i could not see anyone and so therefore they could not see me!
When my brother was around four he would get into stuff and when my mom would spot him he's stand perfectly still pretending he was invisible. He Thought if he stayed still and didn't make any noise then my mother couldn't see him at all.
I was so smart when I was seven years old. I could sleep a few minutes later if I just put my school clothes on the night before, and slept in them. The bonus was I would do this no matter what I was wearing...dresses included.
When I was 4 or 5 I was convinced I wanted to be a model. When I told my older brother and sister this, they asked if I wanted to be a nude model or...the "other kind," and they made nude sound like the answer I was suppose to say. My mother was thrilled when I announced that my siblings told me to be a nude model and I was excited!
When I was a kid, people always used to tell me how skinny I was, so whenever I used to get into an elevator, I would jump over the crack between the elevator and the floor because I was afraid that I would fall in.
When I was little, my older sister had braces. I remember thinking that they were jewels that grew on her teeth, and they were sooo pretty. I wanted jewels to grow on my teeth, too.
One day when i was probably about 3...my mom found me in the bathroom upstairs with lip "smick" all over my face and hand soap in my hair...my mom tried to keep from laughing and asked me..."kelly, why did you put lip stick all over your face and soap in your hair?" I answered "Cause there was "spiders" in my hair!"
I'm kinda guessing that my dad called tangles "spiders"
I used to believe that when women grew up that they could no longer wear socks. When I was a child, my mom and Grandmother's all wore panty hose. It wasn't until I was a teenager did I ever see my mom wear a pair of socks.
When I was, before I startd school, I was very thin. People would say to me, you as skinny as a toothpick. You are so skinny you could go down the drain. Well I believed them and my sister would terorize me, threating to pull the plug in the tub and I would scream thinking I was going to go down the drain.
When i was really little, if i didnt get my way i'd pout about it (i dont do that anymore lol) and my dad didnt like it so he told me that if i frown like that for too long my face will be stuck that way.. and wut do you kno.. i believed it. actually i believed it till i was 12.. (last year) :D
