My Mum told me that the Queen used to have an injection every day so that she didn't have to go to the toilet like the rest of us. I always used to wonder why she was the only person allowed to have it.

In England, 'Lyons Syrup' comes in tins with a picture of a lion lying in the sun. My father told me that this was how they made syrup, by leaving lions out in the sun to melt. I believed it for a long time, and even thought I could taste the lion.

My friends and I were playing with walkie-talkies on the roof of his shed and we were sure we had contacted Korea, because we interrupted a signal of someone else speaking an asian language. We were afraid we would start a war, so we went inside and watched tv instead.

When I was about 4 my grandmother told me that eating carrots helped me to see in the dark. I somehow misheard this as 'carrots make your eyes glow in the dark.' Needless to say, I immediately gobbled my veggies down and was very dissapointed when my eyes failed to light up the room that night.

My parents would say eat your vegetables, they're good for your motor. So...of course I believed I had a motor, so I'd take my Dad's keys and stick them in my bellybutton to start my motor instead of eating vegetables. I did this until one day my Dad said, if you stick keys in your bellybutton your rearend will fall off. That's when I started to eat my vegetables.
