I used to believe those streaks in the sky (the ones airplanes or jets leave) were made by Mighty Mouse. I always tried looking for him, but I always missed him, since he was so fast.

I thought the word debut was actually "day view" since it was the first time the thing saw the light of day. Even when I did read the word for the first time I thought it was pronounced "debbut" till someone corrected me

My parents used to have plastic plug-socket protectors (i.e. the plug prongs attached to a shield bit) to prevent inquisitive toddlers from electrocuting themselves.

Apparently I was of the belief that they were actually there to prevent the electricity from flowing out!
Pretty sensible, I thought! :)

I used to believe that if you saved the bits of crud that collected in your eyes overnight instead of wiping them away, they would eventually grow into a whole new eyeball.

Every day I would leave the 'sleep' in the corner of my eye until I got to school where I would hide it behind a door. I was hoping that eventually I would grow an army of eyeballs there.

Ahhh, The Incredible Hulk. I wanted to be just like him. I also happened to be a picky eater. Imagine my parents' glee when I believed the source of Hulk's strength was split-pea soup, and if I just ate enough of it myself, I could aquire his powers, too.
