It is weird to think about all the strange stuff we believed as kids. A giant bunny who hands out eggs? Sure! A fairy who comes into your room at night to collect your teeth? Not creepy at all! Life is fair and we will all be successful if we just work hard and be ourselves? That can happen! Of course, as we get older, we realize the things we once believed to be true are all pretty much BS.

Womp womp.
