I used to believe...

I Used to Believe is a site/project that collects and lists all those things that we, as children, believed.

"I used to believe...thanks to my older sister...that dogs could talk, but they just didn't talk to me, cause they didn't like me."

I used to believe that the mountains surrounding the Las Vegas Valley were made of plastic, that if I bit my fingernails I would get moles on my face like my Aunt Sally, and that the people in the television could see me as well as I could see them. I was also terrified of the Cookie Monster and would run out of the room whenever he was on.

Here's another quote from the site:

I believed that the insects earwigs would crawl up inside your ears and into your brain when you were asleep in bed.

Ummm...I still believe that.

What did you used to believe?

That if I turned the radio off in the middle of a song, when I turned the radio back on, the same song would be playing.

I used to believe that I had no earhole and the surgery to make one was too expensive. All tks to my brother and sister.

I also used to believe that my father and my uncle were actually, the same person. Once I saw them both in the same room, at the same time, I was hysterical, not knowing what to think.

I could go on and on and on....

I used to believe that if you swallowed the watermelon seeds you would grow watermelons in your belly -- I was deathly afraid of even putting the seeds in my mouth.

I also used to believe that I would grow up to be a supermodel. (oh yeah, baby!)

i used to believe that if you didn't wash your hair (which as a child i would scream and scream, so my mom told me this) that spiders would go in your hair, and lay eggs in your scalp, and when they hatched in your brain, you'd die. thanks mom, i'm now completely spider-phobic!

My Dad used to tell me that my bellybutton was the knot that ties my ass on to my body. If I played with it, I'd undo the knot and my ass would just fall off. The original story was if I undid the knot, I'd lose all the air inside me and I'd fly around the room like a baloon losing its air. That didn't discourage me at 2 and a half. I wanted to fly around the room :)
