Jeesh I was dumb but I know I am not the only one who thought this stuff. See below. Add yours
-I used to think that teenagers were super old and that I'd always be a child.
- I used to pretend I was a scientist and would mix random things I would find around the house into a jar thinking that a new life form would emerge if I just mixed in the right order that no one else had ever done before.
-I remember being shocked and surprised when I saw our Priest use the school bathroom. I must have been 6-7 years old-1st or 2nd grade. I could not fathom that Priest had to go to the bathroom to do dooty like the rest of us. Mind Blown. Later in life went to a wedding reception when I was 15 or so and the Priest we had at the time was downing mixed drinks one after another..Priest are allowed to drink??..Mind Blown once again
4th grade or so could not get the nerve to ask my dad about where babies came from so I asked my uncle. He said babies were just made automatically when a husband and wife kissed 6 times everyday for 9 months straight and that is all it took
.(but that this could only happen if they were both married). Whats sad is I believed this until 7-8th grade..serious.. God, was I naive/sheltered life. My uncle trolled me at a young age. LOL
In grammar school I used to ask myself if life was real or if others were real and I was not or if I was real and others were not.
Sometimes I still wonder about that.
My first ride in an elevator was in a department store. I was a very young kid, and did not know what an elevator was. I thought we were simply going into a little room; and when we emerged, they had quickly changed everything in the store like magic.
Not my own history, but my son’s.
One day I told my pre-school age son that the plumber was coming over. He burst into tears. He didn’t know what a plumber was. All he knew was what his big sister told him: they have Big Claws and Sharp Teeth!
I thought that everything that happened in movies was real and that they must have had to pay actors who got shot dead a lot of money.
I used to think there was a monster under my bed and I would never stand next to my bed after nightfall because I thought a creepy hand would reach out and grab one of my ankles. (When it was time to go to bed, I used to take a running jump.)
I think we all have thought that at one time or another.
I thought there was a little man in the radio, talking.
Also I suspected that, like the Truman show, people were performing a script around me. I thought this was called “life insurance.”
In the Fifties we would’ve done that without the bike.
My dad told us that if we swallowed our gum it would wrap around our heart until it couldn’t pump anymore.
I used to think I could actually fly
if I lift my arms and leg just right ever so slowly, and just lifted my weight a little bit at a time...
I invariable fell over when I reached the top of my tiptoe
But i would try this for like 20 minutes straight feeling as if it was just about to happen
When I was very young, I thought the sun always stayed “up”, and that the reason it got dark at night was because it got really cloudy.
When I was in High School, my little brother (5-6 yrs old) was asked to be in our cousin’s wedding. After the wedding, I told him “Congratulations”; he said “Why?”.
I told him that he was married, and that we sure were going to miss him at home. He denied being married.
I asked him:
Did you hold hands with the flower girl? Yes.
Did you have a ring? Yes
Did you to to see the Pastor in the front of the Church? Yes
Mom and Dad were laughing too hard to stop me ... thinking back, that was pretty mean. But, darn funny.
I really thought that.
I used to think that Democrats stood up for the little guy.
I used to think people who killed my friends and insulted me were the bad guys.
Then I found out I was a white guy.
I used to think Democrats meant well.
