Oh yes, I was a strange kid. I used to think drains were very scary, and would make my mom put a bathmat over the drain before i would take a bath. dont even talk to me about pool drains!
And I thought WW3 could start at anytime, and thought a missile could fit through our bedroom window.
A more normal thought(for a kid) was thinking there was something hiding in the closet or under the bed.
And I thought for sure that I wasnt human. I was an animal.
When i was really little, my imaginary playmate was a vampire.
I was weird then...I'm even weirder now.

Look...look what you've done to me...You've made me poor and infamous, and I thank you...

My name is MISS MACPHISTO...I'm tired and i want to go HOME...

Well tonight thank God it's them, instead of you...

I grew up with a weird mom. She used to hide in the closet and scare the shit out of me by jumping out of it (after I looked around for her for what seemed like minutes on end!). She also used to turn the basement light off from upstairs whenever I was down there for something by myself. To this day I'm scared to be in a basement without having the lights on.

I was a weird kid, too...I used to be afraid of a painting in our local library. It was huge and we had to walk these steps up to get to the children's section, and I would always walk on the furthest side from the painting I could get.

Go ahead and laugh now. I dare you.

I thought that you could fix tape with everything. Not even masking, or duct tape. I thought that scotch tape (the small clear kind) could fix broken cars, buildings, roads, even bones. My parents tease me about it to this day. I'll break a dish, and they will tell me to tape it up!!!

I also had a fear of fish. Which is funny enough, but my fear was of dead fish. If I was in the fish section of a pet store I couldn't put my hands in my pocket because I would feel slimy, dead fish in there.

Well, I use to watch America's Most Wanted and Unsolved Mysteries with my dad when I was little. It freaked the s*** out of me. I use to go and turn on my bedroom light during commercial, or even between shows. That way I wouldn't have to go in my dark room after the two hours of terror.
I had two imaginary friends, but for the life of me I can't remember their names.
I'm gonna have to try and think back to those days.

when i moved back to the US i started school in late fall, and didn't really know anyone and hadn't been to kindergarten in the US and didn't know too many American customs (yet)

so on the last day of class before Thanksgiving, all parents were invited in to celebrate our "thanksgiving meal."

we had to name different foods that the pilgrims ate. Everyone named all the foods they knew, like turkey and stuff, and then weird kids said things like Pizza and ice cream. and i tried really hard to think of what pilgrims would eat in colonial days and I shouted "wildcat" and everyone laughed at me. even the teacher. and my parents. and everyone else's parents.

it was a harsh lesson. i hate thanksgiving and those fat, rosy-cheeked paper pilgrims that are hung in schools. but some of you may already know that....

Wildcat!
BUWAHAHA!!!! LMAO elizabeth!

You know what my parents did when I was afraid of something in the closet or under the bed at night? They would spray "monster spray" all around...and it was strange, as I got older I began to think "monster spray" smelled a lot like lysol

But I still keep a can around just in case

Hehe...my brothers and I would also have puppet shows and we would make up tickets and signs advertising it (to put up in our house). We would make our parents come and watch....the problem was that our puppet shows usually didn't have puppets and never had any semblance of a script

No wonder my parents came up with "monster spray"

I used to think I was an alien. I used to have an imaginary friend, who grew so real that he sometimes posts in place of me.

My mom made me out of clay since she lived (and brought me up) on an island full of amazonian women.

Top that!!

I thought boys weren't allowed to have blond hair. Any boys who did have blond hair were "weird" (my mom, my sis, and I are blond, but my dad had brown hair, so I thought all boys were supposed to have brown hair and all girls blond).
