I used to believe that when I turned the television off, i.e. to go to school, when I'd come home the exact same program would be on exactly when I switch it off (i.e. like the TV was paused or something when I turned it off and it would play from where I last saw it when I put it back on).

I also kind of thought that! (well, not the clowns bit)

I also thought alcohol was a kind of medicine (I got confused with antibiotics).

My dad used to tell me that he had a pink and yellow suit (it was the time of Blobby). He said that only people with glasses could see it. I used to go into his wardrobe with my mum's sunglasses on and look for it everywhere - I never found it. sad.gif

Then my sister got glasses. All of a sudden dad started saying it was only special people with glasses who could see the pink and yellow suit. edit: which is a bit sad on my sister. unsure.gif

I used to think teachers lived in school.

And I remeber eating a cherry once and accidentally swallowing the stone and my dad told me that a cherry tree would grow out of my bum. I had hysterics and believed it for years.

I remember my mum telling me, if I didn't go to the dentist, the dentist would come up and get me and take me to the dentist. blink.gif Why do parents say things like that and the cherry thing? rolleyes.gif

Do you remember at primary school, the room under the school where the bins were? We used to think some monster/psycho lived there?
