When I Was Little…

When I was little, I used to think that the tiny little lizards that sometimes scurried quickly around our home were crocodiles.

When I was little, I used to sometimes lay on the floor and imagine what it would be like to walk on the ceiling. I would dodge every flush light and feel the popcorn ceiling crustiness between my toes.

When I was little, I used to think that if I was ever alone, the world would end and I would be the only person left on earth.

When I was little, I was so afraid of elevators that I would leave home 1 hour before it was time for school so I wouldn’t have to take the elevator alone. I would ride down to the first floor with my elder siblings so I wouldn’t have to ride alone. Then, I would wait in the front lobby of our building to see my friends crossing the street and meet them outside as though I wasn’t waiting for an hour.

When I was little, I would pretend that I wore braces. It was a great past time for me to push staples between the gaps in my teeth. Now, I honestly wonder how I never choked.


When I was little, I wanted to wear glasses so badly.  I would often try on a few pairs when I went into a store where glasses were sold. (Who am I kidding? I still do this!)

When I was little, I used to think that life would be great when I was big. Funny thing is…now I just wish I was little again.

  1. When I was little I used to think that tv shows were actually taking place in my tv 🤷🏾‍♂️

  2. Oooh that’s a really good one. The imagination of children eh? I have another one for you… when I was little I used to think that sharks could come up all of the grates at the bottom of swimming pools! Needless to say I was hesitant to get into swimming pools.

  3. When I was little, I thought the pesticide sign you see on the grass was toxic and your legs would fall off if you stand on it

  4. When I was little I used to think that when I ate an apple and accidentally swallowed the seeds it would cause an apple tree to grow inside my stomach.

  5. I wish I had a happy “when I was little…” I could say here, but when I was little, I wished I was white to make all the abuse stop, and that was the only thing I really wanted as a child

  6. I’m sorry to hear that. That is so sad and horrible that they made you feel that way. I genuinely hope things have gotten better for you as an adult. Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog.
