My new favorite find is called I Used to Believe, the childhood beliefs website. You will find stories like this:
“When I was about six I was in a wedding. The other flower girl said she was from Pennsylvania, which scared me because I thought she was a Vampire. I kept trying to get a good look at her teeth to see if they really were long. I tried to be polite about it all, because I knew it wasn’t her fault she was born a vampire!”
There is also one about vomit that is really really good, but you’ll have to find it for yourself.
Personally, I never understood the expression “the straw that broke the camel’s back” because I would imagine a drinking straw and it just made no sense at all. It took until college for me to realize they were referring to straw, not a straw.
Any of you got any?
