Childhood beliefs as an adult

Recommended Posts

i just remembered one: until we were about 16, my best friend thought that a street that had a "no outlet" sign meant that the houses on it had no electricity.

haha! This post is hilarious!

 

I have one for you... When I was little my dad didn't want my brother and I to mess in his workshop area with all of his tools,etc. So he told us that if we touched the air compressor we would get air bubbles under our skin and die. And since you had to walk by the air compressor to get into the shop, we were terrified to go in there! Kind of mean of him in hindsight, but it was effective!

OK I just remembered one. I loved the movie Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. If you haven't seen it there is this part where these girls start screaming and there is an avalanche. Well, I grew up in the mountains and there was this really windy road we drove on all the time and it said something about beware of rock slides on the way down it. I use to freak out when my sister was really loud because I thought there was going to be a rock slide so I would put my hand over her mouth when we went down it lol...

We have one of each in my immediate family - blonde, brunette and redhead...most of my cousins on the Hart side are towhead blondes and the majority of us have blue eyes...

I'm seeing my aunt this weekend and I'll ask her what town grams/gramps came from...I think they came to the states in the mid 1920's...

This is so cool and has got me really excited to start the family tree...this may be a long shot, but ask your dad if he remembers a Joseph and Hannah Hart...

mine is I could not stop believing in Santa Claus because my mom said that the reason christmas eve goes so slow is because Santa had to deliver all of the toys across the time world. and not to mention my mother was a hell of hider. I never found my christmas stuff. But if you think about it Christmas eve takes forever.

Yeah we have red heads 2 lol mine has got a lot of red in it but dad is pure blonde. My little cousin is bright red lmao

Will do but dad is only 63 so maybe a longshot.

I went online and found my grandad's birth certificate, he was born in south shields which is close to me but close to scotland lol I had a mate that used to play for Gala Rugby team in Scotland his mate was called Harty lmao I was gutted in case he was related he was bloody gorgeous lol

I'm now trying to do family tree lol

Here is another about misunderstood lyrics.....I don't know if anyone remembers when Eddie Murphy tried being a singer back in the late 80s, but my mother and I were driving in the car and his "hit" song came on......we were just quietly driving along while the song was playing, then my mother blurts out "why is he singing about his girlfriend using the bathroom?!?!?" She thought he was singing "my girl wants to POTTY all the time, POTTY all the time, POTTY all the time." After I explained he was saying "party" we had to pull over the car because we were laughing so hard!
