What is something strange or silly you believed as a kid? adult content

I never knew men had testicles or pubic hair. I figured they had SOMETHING there that allowed them to pee standing up,but I never knew about the rest. Imagine my surprise when I saw a guy naked for the 1st time! :)

I thought all cats were girls,and all dogs were boys

  • When I was really small, I remember believing that babies were born with their eyes closed, like puppies and kittens. One day, their eyes would open, so I figured mine would, too. I was insanely jealous of my baby sister when my parents hung a mobile above her crib and I found out she could see the birds swinging up there instead of just hearing the music box. She'd taken my turn, the meanie, her eyes had opened first!

    I also believed for a while that I could make bad things happen to people. The principal yelled at me once, and I remember wishing something awful would happen to him; then he had a heart attack and almost died. That was scary.

  • As a kid, I thought that everyone broke out into song in public places - I watched WAY too many musicals on TV.

    I too thought you could dig all the way through the center of the earth to China.

    I believed that if I ran away from home, I could exist on just chewing my fingernails.

  • I don't remember how old I was when I stopped believing it, but I remember believing that the words on book pages only existed if I was looking at them. I can remember trying to turn the page really, really fast, or really, really slow to try to "catch" the page being blank. lmao
