@allyfally:  I believed that when you tried n clothes at the store and didn’t buy them, they washed them after you tried them on before putting them back on the rack.

I have no idea why I thought that.

hahaha i swear i was thinking about doing a thread like this today!

I used to be hilarious when i was a kid.

When i was about…5? i told my mom and dad that i was gonna marry my brother (ew) and they said both amused and alarmed at the same time: “uhm… no, you can’t marry your brother” and i told them: “But Cleopatra did marry har brother!”

Another time, my dad was watching a documental about the sun or something, and  it said the sun would… stop shining or blow up in… 3billion years or something like that, and i told my dad: “oh! im glad im going to be an old lady by that time!” he laughed his ass off. Lol

Another time, dad and i were praying the Ave maría, which goes “Virgin Mary, mother of God…” and i asked him: “dad… so the Virgin Mary existed before God? Because she’s his mom?” He laughed his ass off, again.

My brother always believed that our parents would take care of our burial and funerals when we got old and passed away, just like they always took care of everything

This is embarrassing, but when I was little and heard about sex i remember hearing that the man “enters” the woman. I honestly thought that the man shrunk down to Honey I Shrunk the Kids size and just walked into a woman’s body. I was very freaked out by it and was shocked to learn the truth later on.

Also, you know the oversize trucks that take mobile homes to their sites? My mom used to tell us that those trucks took away houses from families that wouldn’t clean their rooms. Whenever our rooms got too dirty she would say that the truck was coming and we would start scrambling to clean.

My parents also told us if we didn’t go to sleep that the sandman would come and put sand into our eyes (mean, right?). I remember squeezing my eyes shut at night and praying that the man would not come in the house. They used to walk by our room when they knew we weren’t asleep and loudly whisper, “Uh oh, I see Mr. Sandman in the driveway.” Freaky!

When I was young my dad told me that humans were hatched out of eggs. I believed him for years!

I was about 5 when 9/11 happened. I remember seeing it on the news, and thinking that it was a tower in the city I lived in! It took me years to understand everything, I just assumed that they had rebuilt it by the next time I was downtown.

My kids thought that ATM machines just gave out money if you needed it.

This is hilarious!!!   

When I was little like 5 my sister told me that you’re suppose to eat the whole apple, core and all.  So I did.  When I was a bit older 8/9 I learned apple seeds contain cynide.  I believed I had built up an immunity to cyanide poison from years of eating apple seeds.

I also believed that being in the rain on a warm day would make me grow taller and my hair longer.  It worked for the flowers, and plants.  

I was afraid of black cars until my teens because I thought they always belonged to mobsters and would pull out guns at any moment.  I’m sure I got that from a movie.

Well, I don’t have any for myself but here are two gems from my sisters:

  • My first sister knew that my stepmom (her mom) was going to be having a baby; however, she was CONVINCED the baby would be 5 year old, like her, and that she would have a new best friend.  When my youngest sister came out (as a slimy, pruny infant rather than a 5 y/o kid), you wouldn’t believe her disappointment–she cried and told my stepmom to send her back. 
  • We convinced my youngest sister (for quite a long time, and even our parents were in on it) that she was not only adopted, but also an alien from outer space sent to live here with us. Our proof as to why she was an alien?? She doesn’t like Iced Tea…

I used to chew/suck on my hair when I was about 6-7 years old. A relative told me that if I didn’t stop, worms would crawl out of my butt while I slept. I believed her and didn’t put my hair anywhere near my mouth again. 

Also, when I was about 14, my friend’s little sister (4 years old at the time) kept running up to us and screaming BOOBIES and tried to grab our breasts. We told her that if she kept touching other girls’ boobs, she wouldn’t grow any of her own.
