ten random beliefs

My sister told me that if I could kiss my elbow I would change into a boy. I never disproved her on this.

When I was really little, like 4-5, I thought that any word that ended in an -ie sound was a nickname for a longer word. So when I heard 'panties' I thought for sure that had to be short for something, and I assumed it was 'pantanes.' I think I called underwear 'pantanes' for years! LOL

When I was little I had a baby gate set up on my bed so I wouldn't fall off. One night I asked my sister what it was for, and she said it was a fence so monsters couldn't get to me, and I believed her. Later in my life (while I was still quiet young) my mom was in my room, said, "Oh, we don't need this anymore" and started to take it off. Then I started screaming and crying for her to leave it on, so she did, but was confused. I never let her take it off. I'm pretty sure if we hadn't moved, it'd still be there.

I remember being fairly certain as a preschooler that since trees were living things, they must poop. I assumed they somehow did it when nobody was looking. When I asked my parents about it, they laughed but would neither confirm nor deny the existence of tree poop.

I used to think prune juice was called "pooin' juice", because you drank it when you were constipated. I thought the name sounded totally nasty!

When I was four I used to think that the picture and place on the side of a U-Haul truck (you know how the U-Hauls always have the name of some state and a picture relating to said state painted on the side) was where that person was moving to. I would watch the U-Hauls in my neighborhood to see where the people were moving.

I often developed an obsession with places I saw on TV or in my various learning...Egypt, the jungle, the desert...and I kept trying to convince my parents to move there. They'd been talking about moving for a long time and I had a plan that when we DID move, I would change the words on the side of the U-Haul to say "JUNGLE" or "EGYPT" instead of the place we were actually moving to, so then WE'D BE FORCED TO MOVE THERE MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

We didn't actually move until I was 11, and not even out-of-state much less out-of-country xD I still don't know if the pictures on the U-Haul mean that's where you're moving to but I don't care anymore lulz I don't wanna leave tha country anymore

when I was about 4 i was out walking with my mother and kept staring at the clouds in the sky.

She asked me what I was looking at, to which i replied "god's up there somewhere picking the flesh off the dead bodies..."

I was such a sweet child..

One evening when I was about seven years old I accidentally zapped myself while plugging in a fan. I knew this was how people got super powers and was very disappointed when I was unable to conjure lightning or zap my sister at will. I figured I had not been zapped enough so I shocked myself several more times on purpose over the next year or two and to this day I am pathetically normal. Kind of.
