I once read in a magazine when I was very young a story about people in seoul (where ever that is?) eating dogs but in the article it mentioned the olympics!. I got confused and assumed that the olympics was a cruel dog eating competition and was disgusted with my mum when she asked me to join her in watching it on tv!.

I used to think that the monsters under the stairs made a mass migration every night, and that their migration path led them right over my bed. If I lay very very still and held my breath, they wouldn't notice that there was someone under the blanket they were walking on and they wouldn't attack me. If I closed my eyes, I could see them all stumbling over me in a long long line...

My mum had a rubber plant and she used to steal rubbers from her work and put them on the plant each month and told me that it actually used to grow the rubbers and thats where all the rubbers in the world came from!

When I was little, I believed that it was someone's job to hoist the sun up into the sky, and someone else's job to climb a really big ladder to hang up the clouds. Since sometimes there were no clouds in the sky, I assumed that person didn't go to work. I was always worried the man who hoisted the sun wouldn't go to work one day, and it would be dark when I woke up.

I used to believe that each person/family in the world lived on a different planet in the solar system. My family and I, for example, lived on Earth, while my friend lived on the moon. Another friend of mine then, quite obviously, lived on Mars, and so on. I realised this was wrong when I noticed I was able to visit my friends at their houses without any help from NASA.
