Odd Childhood Rituals
« on: February 15, 2019, 11:08:24 PM »
When you were a kid, did you have any weird rituals?

I used to be afraid that underground demons would kidnap me in my sleep and replace me with a clone, so used stuffed animals to protect myself from these baba yaga-style capturers. Incidentally, there is a TMBG song (and music video) about that very topic.

I used to cover my ears when flushing the toilet to make it less loud. Not because I didn't want others to know I had used the facilities. I just didn't want it to be so loud.

I used to run away after starting the sweeper because the noise scared me when it started up.

I was entirely convinced that demons came out of the heater vents in my basement, so when I was going up the stairs I had this weird rule that I had to go up on all fours and super fast so the demons wouldn't get me.

Ha, I was also afraid of the noises the vacuum and toilets make. Today I wear earplugs before I start vacuuming, moreso because I have sensitive hearing than anything else.

My nephew recently ran on all fours for no practical reason. I get the sense that he thought he could escape the nursery permanently if he used twice as many limbs to do so, but he isn't speaking yet, so I have no way of getting any answers from him.

My mom once told me that on one of my old elementary schools or kindergartens there was a model lighthouse in the teachers room (because the school was called "the lighthouse"), and I had somehow gotten myself an exemption from the globally written no-students-in-the-teachers-room law to turn on the little lighthouse every morning.

The first thing I would do every morning when arriving at school was exactly that. Run straight for the teachers room, turn the lighthouse on, and then run to class.

That was my job. My responsibility.

She even told me that she was there one day when the teachers were having a meeting with some folks from the municipality board who were unsuprisingly quite surprised by this random lad just charging in and flicking a switch on this model lighthouse before running away again. And that the teachers just said something amongst the lines of "Nah, it's okay, he's the lighthouse-keeper here".



I also remember that as a kid I had developed some sort of procedure for going to the toilet at night where I would turn on and off the lights in such an order I wouldn't have to walk in the dark (which was desireable for obvious kids reasons)

If I recalled correctly, I would turn on my bedlamp, then turn on my room light to turn my bedlight off again, turn on the light in the hallway, then run back to turn off my bedlamp, then run downstairs to turn the light on there, run back up to turn the hallway light off, and then go downstairs to take a leak before doing the same procedure in reverse to get back in bed.

I would always drink Hot Chocolate on the last day of Winter, and eat Ice Cream on the Last day of Summer, don't quite remember why though.

When I heard someone burp, I would make a fake cough and say, "Apologize."
