When I was a child, the "This is your brain on Drugs" (Where they fry the egg) commercials would play all the time during the Saturday Morning cartoons. I completly misunderstood those commercials and believed that the act of frying an egg in butter would somehow make it be "Drugs" I learned quickly how wrong I was when I yelled at my mom for "Making Drugs" for breakfast one saturday morning.

In order to get me to stop whistling, my grandmother told me that if I whistle, I will grow a mustache. I totally believed her up until the 5th grade.

I used to believe that the reason I had to hold my Mom's hand while crossing the street was that so if my Mom got hit by a car, she could drag me down under the car, too. I was a strange child.

When I was growing up in Northern BC, Canada, my father told me that Eskimos were different from Caucasians because they didn't have sweat ducts - they didn't need to sweat because where they lived it was always cold. I believed this well into my teens, when I repeated it to a friend who laughed at me. That's when I realized my parents sometimes lied.

When I was young and started learning how to read I read a sign at the mall next to an escalator that said "Adults must accompany children at all times when riding" and theres was a picture with an adult holding a child's hand, but as a child my imagination was very wild and I thought "adult" said alligator and the picture was and alligator too so I told my mom that I couldn't go down the escalator with her until I found an Alligator. Of course that belief didn't last long when she dragged me on the escalator and I found that nothing bad happened to me even with no alligator.

When I was a kid, my dad and I used to fish a lot. One day we were driving down the interstate and there was a retention pond by an off-ramp. I asked him if there were any fish in that pond and he said there were. I then asked him how fish got into ponds and he told me that a bird flies by and drops them in. It made perfect sense to me at the time, and I believed this until I was about 19 years old.

I had three cabbage patch kids and many other kinds of dolls. I used to rotate which one I would take out with me, which one I would sleep with, and which ones I would play with because I thought they would get their feelings hurt and kill me when I slept. I think my mom put that fear in me because cabbage patch dolls were so expensive. She felt if she paid for three of them, I'd better play with all three of them!
