1. If you pull an eyelash out it won't grow back
(I was once upon a time in the habit of pulling my eyelash's out. Don't ask why, just a nervous habit I guess. I stopped pretty much the moment I was told this however.)
2. If you pick your nose your finger will get stuck
(Another habit I had as a kid. Yes. I did just admit that. Hey, some of you ate shit as children, so don't start.)
3. Black people are bad
(I do not believe this now. I was maybe twelve the first time I ever saw a black person as I grew up in a very white dominated town. My parents never spoke to me about skin colour, and given my dad was teased for looking like a 'spear chucker' (aboriginal) as a kid. You can guess the attitude around me wasn't very good.) (Also, this was a great movie)
4. You have to close the curtains at night because if you don't a monster will see you sleeping and eat you
(I wsn't told this one. I made it up on my own. Well why else do you have to close your curtains? I mean it's not like you want your room to be dark at night is it? Actually I still don't fully understand. That's why mine just stay closed indefinitely)
5. Life is easy
(Holy mother of crap was I wrong.)
So there you have it. Five beliefs I had as a child. (From before ten or so years old).
What were some things you believed?
