One time when mom had dinner ready and she said to turn the TV off and come to the table, I remember thinking the TV would pause and I could come back to it later. (Way before Tivo!)

I was raised in a catholic family and started at a catholic school. I knew I went to a catholic school and other people went to a public school. One day I was watching a TV and the channel was called "NJN - Public TV" I turned it right away thinking that it would teach me things that were incorrect (i thought public and catholic schools taught things differently)!!!

When i was little, i always wondered where the laughing and cheering would come from when we watched a sitcom. So i believed that it was other people like me sitting at home and we could hear them laughing through our television sets. So i used to talk into the speaker on the tv and say things so that people "on the other side" could hear me.

When I was a kid of 5 or 6 I thought that the people performing on TV were performing live AND they were just waiting for me to turn the TV off so they could take a break.

I use to believe that some shows on tv the characters where actually puppets and people were behind my tv acting out the scences with their puppets.
Needless to say I wasn't the brightest child.

Like all other youngsters I loved to sit in front of the tv all day. My sister always said if I watch too much my brain would turn green

I used to turn off the TV to go take my nap, and I'd think that afterwards I could come back to watch the rest of my program where it had left off.

I used to believe that when I turned off the TV, whatever I was watching would "pause". When I came back and turned it on, I was disappointed to see it had kept going and was over.

I thought that little people crawled through the wires in the back of the TV...so that's how we could see them on TV.

I sincerely believed that a TV program would stop at the exact moment that you turned the TV off. I would turn the TV back on, and be totally confused as to why the storyline, or even worse, the entire program, had changed.

I used to think that characters on television were people in a box and when you turned on the TV they would run up the cable cord and into the TV.

I used to believe that the persons appearing on tv just hid behind the tv set.So I would go behind it to to chek whether they were there or not.

I used to believe that there were people in the TV that watched the shows and laughed at the funny parts, and thats why on some shows you can hear other people laughing (which i now know is the studio audience)

I believed that everyone in the world could watch me on t.v. if I did commercials in the mirror. I used to spend hours doing "breck girl" commercials from the age of 5 to about 10 in my bedroom mirror. My brothers still call me the breck girl and my signature move at 38 is still the "hair toss"...

When I was little I used to believe that actors and actresses lived inside the VHS tape and I would ask them repeatedly whether they were ready for me to start the tape or not. I assumed that they just acted out the movie whenever I wanted them to.

I used to believe that normal people would go in front of a special machine to make them tiny, then they would jump in our tvs to be on the tv shows. i always looked behind the tv to see where they got in and if i'd be able to get in there.
