From the time in toddlerhood that I started wearing underpants, I thought that other people could see my undies through my clothes, and spent lots of wasted time making sure that my undies matched my outfit. It wasn't until fifth grade that it occurred to me that I couldn't see anyone else's underpants.
I used to watch Sailor Moon so much i was convinced I was her. I stood ontop a car once and tried to transform. i was sure that if i didn't whisper my transformation words but screamed them out and threw my hand up like Sailor Moon does I'd transform. I was shattered when no matter how much I tried I couldn't transform. I even got a tiara and learnt how to throw it like Sailor Moon, but still *sniffle* i never became Sailor Moon
When I was about five years old, my brother told me that there were 6 other people who were exactly like me in every way and they had the same name and everything. He told me that there was one of me for each continent. So the next year We went to England (I live in North America) and I went around to everyone asking: "Have you seen me?"
I believed that there were seven of me until I was about seven years old.
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.
The year I got my braces I was suddenly popular at school. I thought the braces had some magical power that made people start liking me. I was certain no one would like me after I had them taken off the next year.
I used to believe that drag queens were actually queens, princesses, countesses, or any royalty that would be dragged across the ground under the cars at drag races, and they queen dragged the farthest would win. I would always wonder why they enjoyed this, or why there were so much of them. I found out when I was 14, during a class presentation!
I used to go home and wash my face befor I seen my mom because one time I returned from my friends after a normal day of fun that two unsupervised 7 year old boys would have .and my mom within 1st second of saying hi mom was cut off by her aying what have you done you have guilt written all over your facem wich led to a confession and a lot of trouble,that is why you must wash the guilt off befor you see mom.
When I was younger my sister told me that running in cold weather would make me short. I was already short so I was terrified to play outside in the cold. I didn't learn this was untrue until I asked my college anatomy professor about it the other day.
I used to think that because I saw other people's faces, They could see their own face. This ticked me off because I couldn't see my face without a mirror.
When I saw a lady with makeup, I used to think that it was actually part of her complexion. Therfefore, my nursery teacher had permanent blue eyelids!
... i used to believe the more stripes my pair of sneakers had, the faster i would run ...
When I was little, me and my sisters wanted to know why my grandma was fat and everyone else wasn't. She told us that one day she took out the water hose cause she was really thirsty, and just drank water until she became fat. Man I think I was like 10 when I found out that's not how people get fat.
I thought that the difference between girls and boys was that girls have teeth.
When I was a young girl, I was curious why/how my mother had so many freckles. She told me when she was little she swallowed a jar full of pennies, and that's why she has so many freckles. I believed it for years, and freaked out when my own freckles began appearing.
It was the early 90s and women's shoulder pads were still a thing. One of my aunts always wore them, and I was scared of her because I thought her really pointy shoulders were part of her body!
The custodian at my elementary school was a friendly guy, and always had a toothpick hanging out of his mouth. One day our class went down to the basement of the school for some kind of drill, and the custodian was there. I asked him why he always had a toothpick in his mouth. He replied, "Because if I take it out, my head will fall off." I believed him absolutely, and for years thought that toothpicks were medical devices used by people whose heads weren't connected properly.
my grandpa was slightly overweight. I asked why he was so round. His reply was that he was preganant. I then waited 5 years for his baby and talkign to it whenever I saw him. It seemed logical since I knew about male seahorses.
when i was about 12, i was convinced that my eyebrows needed to be about an inch higher on my forehead...i would spend hours in front of the mirror, wishing them to be higher so my forehead wouldnt appear so big!!! thank god, it never happened...can u imagine someone with eyebrows in the middle of their forehead...i would have had to join the circus!!!
I have a mole on the side of my face and once when I was 5 or 6 my dad told me I was a robot and the mole is where they charge me up at night and on my birthday they were going to change me in for a new model. He didn't understand why I was upset, he thought it was a funny joke. :) Ugg men
When I was little, I thought that people turned into the opposite gender when they grew up. I have no idea where that comes from.
I also thought that my face was horribly disfigured, like that of a housefly, and that my parents had bought special mirrors that changed what my face looked like, and they paid everyone off to not tell me that my face was weird.
