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.
So, I'm the only one in the world that spent over 20 years thinking they were Life Savers instead of Light Sabers in Star Wars, huh? And actually, at about 18 I decided they were Light Savers, even though they were completely made of light...yeah, I'm quick

when i was about 6 i thought that behind the mirror was a whole other world and the mirror was really a window. so i used to walk up to the window and invite my reflection to come over for a play date. i was quite dissapointed when " my friend from the other world" didn't show up!
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.
At about age 7 I thought one could see the people running around on a map, if one looked hard enough.
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.
