ten random beliefs
1972 was a leap year. My sister told me that meant February had a "29th" but some years didn't have the last day of February.
Did this happen to other months? I was so scared that maybe July would sometimes drop its last day, and I wouldn't get my birthday. No birthday presents! Horrors!
Lucky for me, I did in fact get to turn 3 that year. Phew!
I had an imaginary best friend when I was a kid named Gringo. Gringo and I did everything together and we even 'dated' for a while. He then bought a house across from the mall so I didn't see him as much...only then did I learn he went off and married some woman and moved to Australia w/o even a goodbye! Every time I pass the mall, I still wonder how he's doing... I think he dumped me because it was easier on me than putting me thru the pain of telling him that I was in school now and it wasn't cool to have an imaginary friend... of course his rejection of me was just the beginning in a long line of men to follow... :)
I used to think that when you signed an organ donor card, they would come and take you away and take your organs out straight away. I remember watching my mum fill one in, getting really upset and running off with it and tearing it up! I didn't want them to come and kill her!
When I was a child, I believed that if you had any body part other than your head out of the covers, T-Rex would walk by your house and see you and he would then proceed to lift the roof off like the lid to a box and eat you. He'd then calmly put the roof back down and keep going, looking for other kids to eat. Likewise, if you had an arm or leg hanging over the bed, something could reach up and grab you from underneath. Only safely in the middle of the bed with the covers pulled up to your chin were you safe!
My brother told me that cat's beeped when you squeezed them. (Lightly of course) He'd squeeze them and beep and I thought it was the cat. I thought I was squeezing wrong for some time.
once after a long day of fishing i think i was like 4 or 5 my dad said we needed to "clean" the fish so while they were inside at my grandparents house i walked over to our house and grabbed the shampoo and walked back to my grandparents house on the step in a bucket were the fish we caught i thought i was doing my dad a huge favor by washing the fish clean with the shampoo
When i was little i had a fish named beebay. When he died, i told my mom to put him in the freezer because i didnt want him to die and that some how the freezer would help. I found him years later still frozen solid in the back corner.
I used to believe that if I was very still and very quiet, that I would turn invisible. I was sorely disappointed to find out that it didn't work.
I used to belief that the birth mark on my dad's leg was where he spilled his coffee... EVERY morning.
I used to believe that the Pope lived in an aeroplane. Because whenever you saw him on TV he was getting out of an aeroplane. I even drew a picture of the aeroplane in my First Communion book under the heading "where the Pope lives" and none of the nuns at school bothered to correct me.
