Quaker Oats Porridge had a picture of a quaker on the packaging. He wore a large white cravat-type thing around his neck.

Because it appeared to emerge from underneath his chin and was the same colour as the product in the packaging, I assumed it was a torrent of semi-digested porridge which poured out of a hole in his face.

When I was younger, I thought that the evening wear category of a beauty pagent meant pajamas because that's what i wore in the evening!! I was shocked when I actually watched a pagent one night. TO my dismay, the contestant were not wearing nightgowns!

After choking on some food, adults would always say "it went down the wrong tube", so I used to think that you had one tube for solid food and one tube for liquid and you had a coughing fit when they got mixed up. This proved problematic when eating soup.

I Thought i was pretty smart as a young kid and liked to show off to my parents. On one roadtrip i wanted to show my parents i could count to a million, so i started counting and i knew up to 100 or so, but i remember my parents (maybe sick of my squeaky-voiced counting and "are you listening to me? Muuuum? Daaaad?") distracted me with a book i could write all the numbers instead

When I was five or six my dad told me that if I ate the hole in the donut I would get a hole in my belly and the donut would come out. I loved donuts and would eat as close to the hole as I could with out breaking it. I did this for about five years even after many people including my dad told me it was not true. I remember being very scared the first I ate the entire donut.

My sister thought that smoking (a cigarette not the other stuff) was against the law. We were watching film and this policeman lights up a cigarette and she goes, "ooooh he's smoking and he's a cop!"

Because I was adopted I was sure that my real parents were a prince and princess from different royal families who were at war, so after I was born they hid me with a "real" family so that I would be safe. I was sure that when the war stopped and my royal parents could be together again that they would come and get me. I told my mom and dad that I would find work for them at the palace so we would not miss each other, but that my little brother could not come. I believed this until I was about 10 or 11, and then just could not convince myself any longer.
