I used to believe that a minute was a really long time. I had really long hair and so if nits were going around school I would always get them. Mum would put the nit shampoo in my hair and I would ask her when I could rinse it out and she would always say "in a minute," then leave me in the bath for an hour.
I used to believe that the later you stayed up, the more sleep you got. I thought time would stop and count backwards from the time you went to sleep. I didn't understand the 24 hour thing.
My sister is two years younger than me. When I was little, I was convinced that I'm gonna catch up when I grow older.
Glad it didn't happen ;-)
I used to believe that - because it was winter in Australia while it was summer in the UK - it was December in Australia while it was June in the UK...
When I was about 4 every day of the week had a color. Monday was blue, Tuesday yellow, Wednesday green, Thursday purple, Friday orange. I don't remember what colors Saturday and Sunday had, though...
I used to believe that if you stared at the m,inute hand of a clock long enough time sped up. because the clock at my house was so big you can always see the hand moving
I used to think that there should always be a special day at the beginning of the month to start out the month before the first. Such as May 0, where that day would just be May, 2008. My suspicions were confirmed when most calendars had a few blank spots before the first.
when i was a little little (5-7) my mom told me that when i was born the man deliverd me. i thought that i came in the mail so i thoght that i was not important so she riped me up and i came back to life
A little while back I used to believe that when you weren't looking, clocks stopped moving or went backwards. Because everytime I looked at the clock I thought I would see it go backwards for a second before starting up again. I'm still not so sure about those things :/
when i was 4 i used to believe that the world had only been around for 2000 years because it was year 2000 and they started counting the years when the world was born.
I used to believe that the world was made for me. And everyone else would dissapear and everything would stop working when I couldnt see it.
I believed that 4 p.m. was pink, and 5 p.m. was blue. I don`t know why.
I used to believe that I was able to tell the time by looking out the window and counting the number of metal spokes sticking out of the timber holding up the telephone lines. Whenever my mum asked me to read the time from the clock I would always look out the window and count the number of metal spokes and I was almost always right. weird!
This is probably the same for most people, but I did think that the clock kept going after 12. our clocks just coludn't get that big.
whene our freind left after a long day, my mom asked what time it was, i responded with 14:87 O_o
I used to believe that the whole world had the same season at the same time of year (e.g. Summer at December, January and February- I live in the southern hemisphere).
I used to believe that if you stare at the hands of a clock long enough, time would slow down and then, completely stop. I was right, except you wouldn't know because you were frozen in time..
I used to think the clock only changed when you weren't looking. So, I wouldn't look at it...and then when I looked back, it changed. I went on believing that until I entered kindergarten
When I was little my mom picked up some KFC and I was very eager to eat it. So I was complaining that I wanted to eat right away. My mom then told me, "we'll be home in a second". I had never heard this phrase before, but I had heard of "in a minute" and knew that meant soon. So, not knowing how long a second would take, I complained and said, "not even a minute?" My mom then explained to me that a second is less than a minute.
I used to think that if you passed by something in a car, you could still see and look at it. This was because when my mom and I would be in the car, and we passed something interesting, she would ask me if I could see it, leading me to the conclusion that everyone was able to still see things that already passed by, like a roll of film. Eventually, I asked my mom to tell me how to do that, and she explained that she only remembered the object, but couldn't see it.
heh. I was so looking foreward to having that ability, too.
When my brother and I were little, my parents were always talking about "watching the ball drop" on New Year's Eve, but we were never physically able to stay up late enough to see it. Until we could, we thought the ball fell from the sky into Time's Square.
