Obviously I'm not as ocassional a VB visitor as I regreted that I might be earlier this week. I feel a need to start an offshoot thread from "Things you used to believe as a kid".<br><br><br><br>
Those of you who read the other thread know that I used to hum along with lawn mowers, vaccuums, flour mills, etc.<br><br><br><br>
I used to eat meat.<br><br><br><br>
I used to use mousse and hair spray. Now I prefer gel.<br><br><br><br>
I used to sleep with this blanket that someone gave me when I was born. I don't know where the blanket is now, but I still have it somewhere.<br><br><br><br>
When I was REALLY young, I'd only wash my hands if the it were #2 into the toilet. Now I am very conscious of how clean I am.

Y'know, somehow I just don't think this thread is very popular. Oh well.

No, I don't think so either. But hey, that's not your fault. Personally, I believe this kind of thread may have finally run it's course.<br><br><br><br>
Oh well....

Maybe this could become a thread about why threads lose popularity... a "We used to post on this kind of thread" sort of thing. And that would fit with the title. ;-)

I also used to be very shy. I also used to be very aggressive. It's sort of strange, because now I'm just the opposite. I'm really outgoing, but also very passive. For some reason those sort of qualities seem mis-matched.<br><br><br><br>
I used to refuse to go to bed unless the bathroom light down the hall was on. I was afraid of the dark. ^_^;;;<br><br><br><br>
My friends find it strange that I used to be a member of the track team in middle school, and that I took ballet for 10 years.

I used to be really intelligent. Then I learned more, and the more I find out, the more I learn that I don't know much.

Did you ever end up not flushing it for so long that the bowl got really full?

I'm normally very decisive--I know exactly what I want. But tonight, my parents were going over to visit with family friends, and I had the option of going, too. I couldn't decide whether to stay here and watch a new episode of Sue Thomas and post on here, or go with them and take the chance of being bored but also hanging out with their daughter's friends who were supposed to be there. I flipped a coin to decide--how lame is that?! It came up tails, so I am here.

Things I used to do as a child:<br><br><br><br>
I used to wash my hands when I felt dust or dryness. My skin was raw and bled. Now I use Eucerin.<br><br><br><br>
I used to be very cruel to animals, even though I loved them. Now I show most creatures my love and try to think of insects not as antagonists, but as creatures who are living out their lives with the best resources they can find.<br><br><br><br>
I used to be hyperactive and drive my poor parents nuts. Now my low metabolism drives me nuts.<br><br><br><br>
I used to hate the taste of most vegtables. Now I appreciate the unique tastes of most vegetables.<br><br><br><br>
Chinese food used to be the wierdest and grossest food in the world to me. Now I love Asian cuisine in general.

When I was little, my brother and I thought that the "Do not pass" signs on the road meant that you couldn't pass that sign, and we were afraid that we would be in trouble. I thought "Pass with care" meant that someone had died at that spot, and you had to be caring when you went by. And we thought drinking and driving applied to all beverages <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I used to think that the words to the Police song "Every little thing she does is magic" were "The Reverend in blue suede shoes does magic" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/doh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":doh:">

I thought that too! There is a small town near where I grew up that has those signs everywhere. I'd sit in the back of the malibu station wagon, fretting and watching for cops. Cause I was convinced my mom was a criminal! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

Were you cruel to insects or animals or both? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/surprised.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":surprised">
