When I was little my grandfather was telling me one of those naughty nursery rhymes. "Mary had a little lamb...she tied him to the heater..and every time he turned around he burned his little..." Then my grandmother said, "Kenny, you can't tell that child that." So my grandfather said "eyeball". They all laughed. I laughed too. I actually told this joke to people all the way past highschool until one day it just dawned on me that it wasn't "eyeball" it was "peter". I remember a feeling eureka when I realized why people never laughed like my family did when they heard the rhyme.
i used to believe that we were all just little dolls and the world was a play house and there were giant people up in the sky playing with us like little girls play with barbie dolls.
i was stupid
My mom didn't want me to watch ninja turtles (who I LOVED) and the G-ma didnt like me getting into her stuff. So they convinced me the ninja turtles sold them this special cream called Brittany disappearing cream that they would threaten me with whenever I was being bad. Not only did I get very angry at my favorite heroes, but I actually believed I would just vanish off the face of the planet if I ever did anything wrong.
We used to tell our children that if they lied, that a white spot would appear on their nose that only adults could see. It worked of course and we knew they believed it ... because sometimes they would come in to tell us something odd ... and would cover their nose w/one of their hands as they told us
My grandmother used to tell us that if we lied there would be a black spot on our tongue. I remember once my sister and I were standing in the hall in front of the mirror with our tongues out (we must have recently been caught in a fig) and Grandma walked by and said as she passed, "Only I can see it." Thus convincing us that she could not only see the black spot but could read our minds. I really believed in the black spot on the tongue for years until one time when my sister and I were both telling the truth and Grandma saw the black spot!
We were visiting my grandmother ( I must have been 6) and on the way into the house I found a puddle in her driveway that was filled with all these colorful oil swirls. I proceeded to swirl them around even more with my finger. I went in the house and washed my hands at my mother's insistence. As I was drying them off, My sister who was 2 years older came up behind me shaking her head but looking like it was a lost cause. You shouldn't have done that. You can't mix oil and water. Now your hand is going to catch on fire. So I waited in terror for the next couple of hours, watching and waiting for my hand to burst into flames!
i used to believe that if you lie you really will get lie bumps.
I convinced my sister when she was about 7 that pressing on a bruise made it heal faster. I told her if it hurts that's how you know it's working. Then I silently laughed while she winced while doing it.
I told my younger brother that when he lied his eyes changed colors. From that point on, every time he told a lie he'd either look away or close his eyes. That lasted until he was about six or seven, and then I had to figure it out on my own.
My father used to tell me that I would stop growing and shrink if I lied. I was the smallest kid in school and it made me believe that I was a lier.
not my belief, but a kid back in middle school (around 1985) who was a bit gullible. Often times when we saw him coming up to our table, we would act as if we were in the middle of a conversation about the new Star Trek 6 movie that just came out and how amazed we were are some of the changes in the characters (don't remember them now). Of coarse there was no such movie. But we had him conviced that he would have to go see it.
When my sister and I were little I told her that everything was made of newspaper. She believed it for about two years.
When I was little, maybe 6, I really really really wanted a puppy. So my devious older brother (9 at the time) told me if I ran around the neighborhood naked screaming "LOOK AT ME!" I could get anything I wanted. So guess what I did? Yup- you guessed it. Ran around our coldesac screaming "LOOK AT ME!" Buck naked. I believed that till i was 7. Then, I was totally embarrased. Still get teased about it. Not pleasant.
i had a firend in elementary school named April. One time she showed me a sparkly diamond (which I now know was fake) and said she had tunnels under her bed and in the tunnels were tons of diamonds. For a long time I wanted to go under her bed and look for diamonds.She never would let me. She also had many other stories that i believed.
When I was younger I would talk constantly. So to shut me up my Dad told me people only have a certain amout of words in their lifetime and if I used them all up I wouldn't be able to speak when I was older.
When I was little my dad had this bag and it had needles and other assorted sharp objects in it so to keep me from sticking my little three year old hand in it he told me that it was filled with baby alligators. It took my mom nearly an hour to calm me down. I still can't go anywhere near a bag that has Taz on it without wanting to cry. It's sad, actually...
I believed that if you lied that your nose would really grow like Pinnochios, so everytime I would lie I would hold my nose in to keep it from growing, so my mom pretty much knew everytime I told a lie.
I covered for my brother because he would come back late. After that my mother she told me something that makes me scare because I used to believe her when she said “the devil is coming to your dream.”
when I was a kid some other kid told me that if you prank call the CIA they will send a electric "spike" to your phone and it will blow up. I belived him for a long time
My mother used to tell me that if I lie, my teeth will all disappear.
I even hear adults saying this to their children nowadays.
