ten random beliefs
One day I asked my dad why men have arm hair and women don't. He told me it was so that men can use their arm to wipe food off their mouth.
My brother told me that if you stared into the sun long enough, you would get x-ray vision. I believed him, and I will probably go blind someday from it.
I have two older sisters and on family vacations, we usually shared one room. Because my oldest sister likes the bed by the window, she used to tell me that I shouldn't sleep in that bed because vampires can come in through the window and would obviously go to that bed first. I started crying wondering what she would do if a vampire came in and she told me that vampires only like girls with blonde hair (i have blonde hair, she doesn't). To this day, i don't sleep in the bed by the window.
My brother told me that when the doctors took out someone's tonsils, they went throiugh their ear. After that, i never told my parents when I had a sore throat, for fear of having my tonsils removed from my ear.
Up until I was about 8, I used to think that the bands on the radio were waiting in a line outside the radio station to get their turn to play! Finally it clicked that would be impossible and I asked my Mom-she told me how radio worked. This was the 70's-I was naive!
When i was little up until I was about 10 or 11, I thought that vampires would try to get girls at night, s i would pull my covers up to my neck; That way, I could feel the vampire trying to take the covers off of me to suck my blood in time to wake up my stuffed animals, who would attack the vampire while I ran away to saftey.
I used to believe that the wind was caused by trees so you could stop the wind by getting rid of trees.
I and my sisters believed that every airplane that we saw overhead, my grandma was on it, traveling, and so we would wave at her.
I used to have phobia about seafood (shrimp, crabs, etc.) because I thought that they would slither up my face and crawl into one of my orifices. There it would proceed to nest and slowly eat my brain and lay eggs...
I thought that socialism just meant being social and didn't get why anyone would be against it!
