You Childish Beliefs In Your Earlier Days?

Fri Nov 01, 2002 3:24 pm

Well, can't remember any of my own yet. Quite recetly my younger sis, away from all sorts of violence, out of innocence had no idea of death or end to this life and use to believe that all grown up will become children as soon as they reach 100 maybe or sometime when they become very old.  Smile
Which ones of yours do you remember and wanna share?

I used to think that the Golden Gate Bridge went from San Francisco to Japan.

This is going to be the most bizzare thing you have ever heard, lol.
When I was little, I flew all the time. Well, I always thought that as we climbed through the cloud layers, one of them was bound to be Heaven. I figured we were high enough, and there were enough layers below us that we'd hit it. I thought, at that age, that all Heaven was was a bunch of beds lined up in rows on clouds. And you just laid in them. So i was always waiting to find them while flying, never did. So, I decided that when I finally got there, I hoped my bed was next to Gloria Estefan's. LOL, yes, she was the first woman I ever fell in love with. Go figure.

Why would God make us all so different, if He wanted us to be the same?

I remember when I was very young, probably around 5, I thought that there were "ghosties" in my room and being petrified of them. Also at the same age I used to have a chronic fear of toilets except for the ones in my house. When I was in preschool, one of the toilets overflowed on me, which apparently gave me quite a fright, and I believed all other toilets would also overflow and swallow me. I thankfully have long gotten over it.

When I was quite young & Mum used to talk about 'the public' in town or the cities, I was under the impression that it was those people you saw when you were out that everyone steered clear of. ie. people that weren't 'normal'. Embarrassment

I thought that because Heaven was in the sky somewhere, if you looked hard enough you could see it, especially if there were those 'fluffy' clouds around. Embarrassment

 Laugh out loud

I thought a pilot is put in the cockpit as a child and he grows up to be a pilot, and he cant leave the airplane ever, but that didn't last long

I used to believe that government could take care of people, an dthat they could just print money if they needed more. I now know that neither is true.

I used to think that hair-dryers (the ones you sit under) in hair salons would kill you if you turned them on.

As for my little brother, he thought that planes "grew up". Like turboprops were little kids & the props were teeth & they'd lose those and grow jet engines as they got older.
