    Hmm. Only one again? Well, I am sure I can’t remember the wackiest, but here are a few silly ones.

    As a preschooler, I thought that I was actually playing recognizable music on the piano.

    I believed that scientists were hugely exaggerating the size of the dinosaurs.

    I thought that if I was lucky enough to live until the turn of the century, I’d look like Mrs. Santa Claus by then (at the ancient age of 33). Though living that long seemed unlikely.

    I was afraid to go out at night for years because I thought the sky disappeared, and I wasn’t sure there’d be enough air to breathe (later I was afraid of galactic events sucking away our air at night, and we’d never know because you see nothing but stars at night). I’d go out if it were cloudy, though.

    Also, I was afraid to go to sleep for a phase, because I didn’t think I’d continue breathing. I didn’t know that breathing is both conscious and unconscious – but I was a happier and deeper sleeper after learning that.

    Why yes, I did read a lot of science fiction, why do you ask?

    That the man in the moon was real, I used to talk to him expecting him to respond, then realised he had no voice box thing so was ok… I now realise he is not so real but I still talk to him *shrug*

    My brother and I used to sit in the car when we were little and there was a tab by the radio that said “Map” and we thought if we pushed it a map would come flying out. We used to dare each other to push it be neither of us ever did it. It actually was a “map light.”

    I used to believe that if I took off my glasses, no one could see me. It made sense because I couldn’t see anyone else very well when I took off my glasses.

    I’ve been thinking of this since yesterday and I can’t come up with the craziest. I was afraid of the dark so as long as the night light was on I was safe.
