Re: What silly thing did you believe when you were a kid?

My parents were both divorced before marrying each other, I've known that as long as I can remember. When I was 6 or 7, I found a cassette tape labeled "Linda Ronstadt" in my dad's handwriting. I didn't know she was a singer, so I thought that my dad had made and kept a tape recording of his ex-wife singing. I hid it so he couldn't listen to it any more, and so my mom wouldn't find it.

My mom grew up in northern Utah and apparently they don't have fireflies there. Her cousin told her about them, but she thought they were mythical like unicorns or leprechauns. She believed this until she was 37 and she saw some for the first time, on a family vacation. Imagine her disbelief seeing a grove of trees all lit up with magic bugs!

That "R-O-L-A-I-D-S" really did spell "relief".

Re: What silly thing did you believe when you were a kid?

I knew that at night there was something under my bed that would reach up the sides and get me. I would lay very still with my whole body under the covers and only my head uncovered. To this day I have to be completely covered with the sheet and blankets in order to sleep! Although, now I know there's nothing under my bed except dust.

I thought "Si habla Espanol" meant "See store for details" because they always said them together in commercials

I believed as a child that I was psychic and had special powers like telekenisis and ability to contact spirits. I would hold sainces

And try to contact spirits. I believed for a long long time. Now I think I may just be a little crazy.

I thought when we sold our house and moved to a new one we had to essentially trade with the same people

I believed in the "man on the moon' and that the moon was following us to make sure that we behaved ourselves and if we didn't he would come and take our toys on us.

I was a kid a long time ago, in an all white neighborhood. The only time I ever saw black people was when my mom took us to the movies.

As a consequence, I thought that black people smelled like popcorn, and I thought this for an embarrassingly long time.
