Re: What silly thing did you believe when you were a kid?

Oh yes, I also believed that no one breaking into the house, and no monsters and the like, could hurt me as long as my feet were under the covers...if a foot accidentally got "free" and I awoke to my foot sticking out I would totally panic...

Actually, that's not terribly incorrect--we had a metal detector for years and pulled it out at every beach vacation

We found quite a bit of change, a lot of gold, and some cool old coins.

This exactly! I thought the sharks could come up through the drains in tubs and pools...
I also believed that my toes would fall off if I swallowed bubblegum. My father told us that all the time, one of my earliest memories.
And I don't know where I came up with it, but I thought itches were little witches under your skin poking you with the pointy part of their hats!

Re: What silly thing did you believe when you were a kid?

I believed in the tooth fairy til I saw my dad in his night wear with money..... I can't remember how old. I thought the tooth fairy was someone that was really pretty that wore a dress... kind of a let down.....
