Santa claus for about 2.5 years
God, angels etc for about 4 years

...then I grew up, gained an independent mind, distrusted what big people ('adults') told me and, later, hated indoctrination !

B) I did exactly the same thing to my brother when I was about her age.

C)he'll get over it. His new Wall.E toy is keeping guard over him.

I'm going to do what I usually do when I hear Scottish people talk. I'm going to nod politely and pretend I understood , then turn away and talk to someone else .

Fair?
