The unshakeable beliefs of childhood.

A couple of weeks ago I found this article; 11 silly things you probably believed as a kid. Some of the ones they list I really did believe. Not about the dogs and cats; but everyone knows that blankets make the monsters go away

So I got thinking about other 'silly' things I believed as a kid. I put 'silly' in inverted commas because some of them Should Be True.

  1. If you don't eat your crusts your hair won't go curly. I believed this with a passion, which is why I never ate my crusts. That didn't work and my hair is still curly-ish. Mum LIED!

  2. That I could run as fast as Road Runner from Loony Tunes.

  3. That there were little men somewhere who watched every traffic intersection and decided when the lights changed. So if they didn't like you, they'd turn the light red and leave it that way for a really long time.

  4. That there were monsters under my bed.

  5. That if I lay under a sheet and squashed myself into the bed, I would be flat and no one could tell I was there.

So now I've shared. Anyone else game to 'fess up to what they used to believe?

  1. Eating carrots will make you see better in the dark - it hasn't helped my eyesight ;)
