I Used To Believe

What kind of beautiful messed up whack did you believe when you were small? I submitted this:

Because my grandfather spoke very quietly and very gravelly, I came to believe that we were born with a limited supply of speech and that if we used it all up we’d become mute at the ends of our lives. I began trying to conserve words as though they were a limited resource.

    I haven’t visited iusedtobelieve.com yet, but when I saw it linked on memepool the other day I thought of you and your grandfather’s word conservation thing … and today you post it!
