when I was a young kid I overheard my sister telling my Dad that she was fired. FIRED?!! Yikes! I envisioned her being tied to a stake and surrounded by fire while all her coworkers looked on. I was amazed that she didn't look all burned and thought she must have gotten the ropes off and ran really fast out of there.

Sassigirl (from grown-ups : work)

when I was little, in the first grade, I thought the nuns weren't human, they were just 'beings' with arms, feet and a head, who wore weird 'hats' and long black dresses. I was tramatized one day when the skirt of one of the nuns was lifted by the wind, SHE HAD LEGS!

I used to believe that checks were like free money, that you could write 1 million dollars on a check and you'd have a million dollars. I used to ask my mom to buy me toys, and when she told me they cost too much, I would ask her to write a check!
