And now, for something a little more lighthearted.
Here’s a list of things I thought were true when I was 5!
(Note: I’m a black wearing, whiskey drinking metalhead now.)
When I was 5, pink was my absolute favorite color.
I loved Yoda and the Six Million Dollar Man, but had never seen either of them on screen. All I knew about them were what my dad had told me about them, and in the case of Yoda, I’d seen him on a library poster.
I thought you wore make up like a disguise, to drastically change your face, and I wanted a whole lot of it when I grew up. I also thought actors and actresses did that, and looked entirely different than they normally did in real life. Note, at that time I hadn’t seen any movies and I didn’t watch TV at all.
I also wanted to learn to wrestle, but when I heard that boys and girls couldn’t wrestle each other I said I’d wrestle my husband.
I wasn’t sure what I wanted to be when I grew up but I kind of wanted to be a knight.
I already liked to draw, and I thought I’d never, ever learn to tie my shoes!
I was learning how to write and count around then, too, but I could already read well enough to finish a novel.
So, what kinds of things did you think when you were five years old?
