What strange things did you believe / think as a child? As in, things that seemed COMPLETELY rational to you as a child?|
When I was a child, I believed that if you hid under blankets, God could not find you. I figured he could see in houses, but blankets? They were somehow IMMUNE.
I also believed my eyes were magical. I don't know how, they just were.
My little cousin, Brandon, believed he had a uterus. When I was 7, he was about 4... and my Mom had a uterine suspension done. (Her uterus fell.) So, he came up and informed her that, he too, had a uterus.
We tried to explain that, no, only girls have a uterus. They're in the stomach. What he had was a uvula, the thing in the back of his throat. He completely disagreed and told us that no, he had a uterus. We could not convince him that he didn't. We still pick on him over it, asking him how his uterus is doing. He's 18 now.
So, what funny things did you think, or, what funny things do you know that other children think?
