The lovely @danidee tagged me to write about 5 random things that I honestly believed as a little kid. I was a truly silly child so let me share some very interesting things that I believed back then.
#1 Bunnies come from the moon.
This was probably a result of all the folktales that talked about bunnies and the moon...I figured real bunnies live on the moon and just hop down and visit Earth once in a while. I even remember starting at the moon for a long time trying to catch one jumping off. Sadly, I never did.
#2 If you eat green veggies, trees grow in your tummy.
Honestly, no one told me this. I just assumed on my own. It kind of made sense at that time. At one point I genuinely thought there were a few tiny trees growing in my stomach. Thankfully, that wasn't the case.
#3 Pokemon are real.
When I first heard of Pokemon, I thought it was based off of real...Pokemon. I even made a list of which ones I would catch if I ever went somewhere that had Pokemon. I still want to believe this. So bad. Pikachuuuuuuuuu.
#4 You can claim stars as your own.
I think one time I asked my dad if anyone owned the stars and when he said no, I immediately claimed and believed them to all be mine. Woohoo!
#5 Lightning and thunder target specific people.
Whenever there was lightning/thunder, I ALWAYS made a pillow fort and hid under it until things calmed down. I blame cartoons, because I thought specific people were targeted and you could get hit no matter where you were.
