  • Somewhere in the universe, the letters of the alphabet exist outside of our drawings and writing, and we use them for language because they were cool people/creatures. K was the most energetic, and C was the depressed mopey one, overshadowed by K in every way. I'm pretty sure this belief came from a cartoon that I thought was real, but I'm not sure.
  • I can fly if I practice long enough.
  • Mom really will break her back if I step on a crack (it's absurd how far out of my way I went with this one).
