the best beliefs ever
when i was little, thinking about growing taller made me sad because that meant i would be farther away from my feet, who happened to be my very good friends at the time.
On day when I was little, I asked my mom why we always stop at the gas stations and she said, its because the car needs food so it could run. One day I felt bad that the car never got any dessert, so I put some left over cake in the engine.
You know the egg carton that had a picture of a elephant on it? Well, I never eat those eggs when I was 8. I used to believe that elephants laid those eggs
I used to believe that my dad made the windshield wipers work by winking. Later I learned what interval wipers are.
When I was first sent to school, I was convinced it was because my parents wanted to stay home and play with my barbies without me
When i was little my sister got a hernia, earlier that day we had been chasing butterflies around the garden so i explained to her that one of the butterflies she caught had ate his way into her stomach and gave her the hernia... shes 19 now and still to this day has the most irrational fear of butterflies
I used to believe that pepper created actual heat.
so one day when I didn't want to go to school, I ate about 2 tablespoons of pure ground black pepper, and told my mom I was sick and to take my temperature.
She told me as red as my face was, my temperature was fine.
I played soccer in grade school and hated it. I asked my mother why I had to play to which she responded "it's the law." When I was about 14, one of my friends told me she had never played soccer when she was a kid. I asked her if her parents had gone to jail or just been given a fine. You can imagine the look of confusion on her face.
You know how every state has an official state seal? Until I was in SIXTH grade I thought that every state had a real seal (the animal) at their state capital.
When I was 6 I believed that on nice summer days you can see the world spin if you just look hard enough :)
When I was little, my mom told me that if I slept with socks on they would eat me alive.
I used to believe my dad was the best male figure in the world and wondered why he wasn't president already.
When I was in preschool, my teacher read me and my classmates a book that said we could become anything we wanted when we were older. I didnt realize the book was referring to jobs and not literally anything so I wanted to become a whale. I thought we could turn into whatever we wanted till about fourth grade when I asked my mom why she was still human and not something else.
When I was a kid, I thought the speed of light was the time it took from when you flipped the light switch until the light came on.
My mom is full Chinese, so growing up in an Asian household, I used to believe that rice always came from a rice cooker. I was shocked when I ate dinner at a friend's house, and their rice was cooked in a pot on the stove.
i used to belief that waves had life and different personalities! The small ones were just wave kids, and the biggest ones were their parents. Every time that I went to the beach I made sand cakes and throw them to the ocean! If I did not make enough cakes, the biggest waves would be mad and would attack the beach. I ran like crazy to make this certain numbers of cakes! But that was ok since they really liked me after all, and the small waves were my friends and would protect me every were I go with an ocean.
when i was little I used to believe that at night the sun flipped around and the moon was on the back of it and they would jsut rotate during day or night
I used to believe that when you blew a bubble and it floated out of sight before popping, it would turn into a planet.
When i was little, my parents had a water bed. Everytime my dad would have to add more water, i would go and hide under my bed because i thought an alligator lived inside my parents waterbed and that it would get out and eat me.
I used to believe that adults (when they just became adults) had a meeting with all the monsters and horror movie characters. They drank coffe, chilling chat so adults would not be afraid of 'em anymore.
And that was my theory of why adults were never (uh-huh) afraid of anything. (: jaja
