ten random beliefs

For obvious reasons, I thought "car pooling" meant riding in a car that was able to go underwater. This made perfect sense to me -- since roads could not be built over lakes, having a car that could just cut through the lake would reduce the amount of time spent traveling. So when our teacher asked my class to vote on if we wanted to "use car pooling" for our first grade field trip, I enthusiastically raised my hand. I remember asking the chaperone (a classmate's mom) when we were going to go underwater several times. I think I spent at least a half hour staring out the window, looking for any nearby bodies of water.

I don't remember why, but when I was about 7 I thought that touching raw turnips would burn you. I was helping my mom in the kitchen one day when she asked me to put some sliced turnips in a bowl. She was confused when I proceeded to put on gloves.

when I was little, some college kids lived next door. One girl I was friends with had short hair, but came home day with really long hair. I asked if they glued on each hair individually, and she said yes. For years I thought people would sit for hours having individual hairs glued on to make their hair longer.
