ten random beliefs
I used to believe that once you flushed the toliet the Rice Crispy Elves would come out of the toliet and attack you and force you to live with them in the sewer.
I thought that you say "In the name of the Father, Son, Holy Spirit, Amen" before you pray, and then again after, because that is a toggle switch for prayer on/off.
I used to believe that sky-scrapers literally scraped the sky. I thought that they moved around and caused the cirrus type cloud formation because cirrus looks like cumulus that has been scraped. I would look up and whenever I saw cirrus I always used to think - "Damn, I missed the sky-scrapers again".
When I was little, I was told that we all have seven layers of skin. I thought those layers were all I was going to have for the rest of my life, and if I were to lose them all, my insides would be exposed! Every time I got a cut or a scrap, I was terrified that I would run out of layers of skin before I got old :)
I couldn't understand why my grandmother wore an ear-grenade (hearing aid). It sounded very dangerous to me
When I was very young, my grandfather would sit me on his knee and he would let
me eat the wooden matches he'd burnt to smoke from his pipe. He had me totally
convinced that the burnt sulphur was good for you to the point that, I still freak
people out to this day by eating burnt wooden matches.
When I was a child, I met my Nana, my grandmother's mother. She was 86 at the time, and reasonably frail. As I grew up, she became frailer, and suffered the sort of hunched-shoulder back often seen in very elderly people, so she lost height.
I remember reasoning to myself that people grew bigger, and then as they got older they grew smaller again. I believed that for quite a while. If the process continued, I thought she would become as small as I was eventually.
When i was little i thought that you get a husband by going to this place where all the men are and picking one of the men there.After you picked your man, you would marry him.
As a child with nothing to do, my mother would give me a salt shaker and tell me if I could put salt on a bird's tail, I could catch it. I spent many days running around trying to put salt on a bird's tail and never succeeded.
when i was in 1st grade mt wonderful father told me that the Easter bunny peed on all the Easter candy. . . i didn't eat jelly beans for years especially the yellow ones
