    When I was a kid we used to have this little table that our phone and adress book sat on near the door that I was small enough to crawl under..I had this game for myself where If I crawled underneith it I would enter an alternate reality where Im on another planet..

    I used to love that game until I somehow convinced myself that I really was in another world and that my parents werent really my parents but some kind of alien species..I began to cry and ran back under that table so fast...looking back on it it must have looked so stupid to them.

    When I was younger, 3 or 4, I believed fairies lived in an old tree stump in our yard. Oh and when I was around 4 or so I believed that as we grew older we became kids...hahaha like I was older than my parents because I was small. :tongue:

    I honestly, truly believed that I could fly.

    I remember the feeling too... no drug can match it.

    I've had dreams of flying. Great feeling. Except I was very slow..like snail speed unless I took a run-start.

    a weird thing I thought as a kid: cats were girls and dogs were boys, there were no male cats or female dogs. They'd mate with each other and make female kittens or male puppies. I've no idea how I got that in my head, but that's what I thought.

    I thought the same of horses and cows, horses being male and cows being female.

    *shrugs* I think I was kinda dumb. :p

    I knew there were male and female of each species but I always referred to any dog as a he and any cat as a she.

    I must have had wax in my ears with respect to words, as according to my mom, I was looking out the window age 3 and said, "It's froggy outside and all the crabbits and boxes are hiding." She thought it was cute and has never let me live it down.[​IMG]

    Oh, and I also believed there was a man in the moon.

    lol ~ I remember thinking I could fly too! I spent many an afternoon trying to take off the picnic table, flapping my arms, trying to fly. I never busted any body part though, thankfully.

    I used to believe that this factory around here that belches steam into the air constantly was a cloud machine. I believed that all the world's clouds originated from here.

    I still believe it.

    I really should go figure out what that factory is for, besides mass cloud production. There's the Jelly Belly factory right next to it so I could always stop by and gets me some jellybeans. Mmmmmm......... jelly beans.

    i always believed there was a little man inside speakers making the music, or talking. I remember staring intently at the little silver round bit inside the speaker trying to find him... i found him... but now i relaise it was my own reflection

    i believed as a child, that everything adults told children was more likely then not to be a lie, even especially what we were taught in school.

    i also believed the ways i misremebered what spacial relationships between physical objects and places appeared to by when riding through/by them in some sort of vehicule, was how they actually were. which is still pretty much how they appear in my dreams.

    i believed that if you believed something hard enough and well enough, and especially if enough other people did too, that would some magicly how, make it so.

    i believed there was such a thing as a fact and that people actually knew things like they believed themselves to. i think my father actually believed that as an adult and that might have something to do with why i did, dispite my caveat about believing anything adults claimed to be the case.

    i did NOT, as my father was fond of claiming, believe that the moon was made of green cheese. i didn't know what it was or was made of, but i'd never seen green cheese glow, or float through the night sky.

    i believed that charicters who died in movies were extras who were actually hired to be killed in the making of them and actually died to do so.

    I believed in spirits and fairies all around me all of the time. I used to talk to them and play with them. I spent more time with them than with my "real" human friends.

    I might add I still believe in them today, but in a different way, with a different understanding.

    I had an imaginary friend, "Hecker", who I now recognize as a sort of personal Trickster God archetype, kind of like Drop Dead Fred but with better hair. "Hecker" actually ended up going through various incarnations in writing and art as I was growing up, and lingers in the character of John Roaming in my writing and artwork today. He is honored in my life in the statues and other representations of Pan and the Green Man around my apartment and the tattoo of Pan on my left arm, and Tibert the Cat with his mouse-sized, captured Devil on my right.

    Oh, and on a sillier note, I used to believe that cartoons were made by people with pencils behind a lit paper screen, drawing very fast.

    I thought the lineman who climbed telephone poles had a prestigious job. I thought college was so expensive because you got to sit in a golden chair. And I thought a Rhodes Scholar was some person who knew a lot about building roads.

    Oh I was just told that at age three I had an imaginary baby that I carried in my hand. My parents thought my hand was going to be deformed because I kept it in a fist - holding my baby. When my hand would sweat I would tell my parents that my baby peed on me.

    when me and my brother were little we would always go into our finished basement to watch tv.. we had a phone down in the basement, and in the upstairs, too..

    when me and my brother would go downstairs to the basement, my dad would get on the upstairs phone intercom and call the downstairs phone, we would answer and my dad would say in a real deep voice "i'm the toe monster, i'm in the basement hiding and i'm going to eat your toes"

    me and my brother would run upstairs crying every single time he did it! lol
