when i was about 7 or 8 my dad had to get surgery on his left shoulder. a few weeks after that, we were driving on the highway and there was a sign that said "left shoulder ok," meaning it was ok to drive on the left shoulder of the road. but i thought the "highway people" (whoever they were) were personally talking to my dad and asking if his shoulder was ok!

When I was three years old I had a 2 week old little sister, and a father that drank beer before he went to bed at night. My grandfather told me that you are what you eat. So,when I was giving my good night kisses that night I told my dad he was going to turn into a beer can and my sister was going to turn into a boob.

I asked my mother where does ham come from. She replied "a pig". I though a pig came to the door and dropped off the ham.

When I was about 11-12, my aunt said that she wanted me to pull the plug if she was a vegetable in a hospital someday. She didn't want to live that way. I was horrified, because I believed that family members literally had to unplug the hospital beds from the walls themselves and I didn't think I could do it.

When I was younger, I had a room that shared a thin wall with my parents. I was about 4 to 6 years old, I heard noises coming from my closet and I naively thought it was a monster. I yelled," Stop you monster! I hate you!" And I threw my spare pillow at the door and fell asleep. It turns out, my mom was just on the other side trying to find her shoes.

I was absolutely _crushed_ when I learned that there were numbers greater than ten. I had believed for... well, for months, I suppose (:-) that 10 was the biggest. When my mom broke the news, I cried for the rest of the day.

I used to believe that eveyone died in alphabetical order, especially after i would read the newspaper obituary collumn. Hence I always wished I could be called Mr Zebedee! I'm a funeral director now, so I pretty much realise this isn't true!

I used to think that cartoon characters were real "people," and I used to tell everyone that I was going to marry Mighty Mouse. My dad liked to tease me and insist that Pearl Pureheart was going to get him first.
