What worries, fears, ideas, did you all have as a kid, that you realize now were pretty ridiculous??
I know that when I was a little kid, I used to get scared thinking that I could be arrested by the police if once in a while, I forgot to brush my teeth, or put (or keep) my seatbelt on while in the car.
I remember as a kid sitting on the top steps of our stairs in the morning, while the rest of my family were getting ready for work/school and looking down at our front door, being afraid that the police would come busting through the door and take me away just because I had eaten something the night before, after I'd already brushed my teeth, and then fallen asleep without brushing again. Or because I'd forgotten to brush my teeth altogether. I still remember trying to come up with bargains in my mind, like I would promise to always remember to brush my teeth, so that the cops wouldn't come.
I guess I was a weird kid :P
What silly ideas did all of you have growing up??
