When I was small I thought Shepherd's Pie was made out of dead shepherds! I cried in a restaurant when I was forced to finish my meal!

I was in my first grade classroom and this kid on my bus route vomited all over the floor. His vomit was brown...and so was his house. My vomit had always been beige...and so was my house. It was then that I concluded: everyone's vomit matched the color of their house. I believed this to be a fact up until the point I ate too many green cookies on St. Patrick's day. I puked green and the theory was officially debunked.

In the medicine cabinet of my childhood home, there was a small slot at the back that was designed for disposing of used razor blades. My sister and I discovered it one day and were amazed. We thought it was a coin slot, and that if we put pennies in it, gumballs would come out from somewhere. We put tons of coins down it, and ran to various places such as the heating vent to see if a gumball came out. Then we started putting hand writted notes down the slot. Somewhere in the inner wall of that bathroom is a lot of money and funny messages, wonder if they will ever be discovered?

As a seven-year old, I believed that every noise ever made or that will be made goes directly to a cave in some vast mountain, and that they will remain there until the destruction of the earth when they will all be released simultaneously.

I used to believe that any items in my bedroom - such as scarves, string, long sleeved jumpers etc - were possessed with an evil intelligence that awoke as soon as the lights went out and would strangle me in the night if I didn't tie them in knots. I finally stamped on this belief when I left home to live with my (now) husband when I was twenty !

i have a slight hearing problem and in church i made a few mistakes. instead of singing "up from the grave he arose" i would sing "up from the gravy rose." i never wuite understood it. the same with "deliver us from evil" which i believed to be "deliver us from weasels." at weddinds i thought "holy matrimony" was "holy macaroni". i thought macaroni was some secret part of a wedding ceremony we weren't allowed to see.

When I was little, I saw my dad wearing a Hooters t-shirt while he was fixing the car, so I naturally associated the two things and thought Hooters was an auto repair shop. Whenever I'd hear my parents say something was wrong with the car, I'd always suggest, "let's go to Hooters!" i never understood why they'd shoot it down all the time until i finally realized what Hooters was when I was... 16

I used to think that the films Jaw's was called George because the main shark was called George - not quite as terrifying as Jaw's is it?
