I always heard the phrase "honor roll" as "on a roll". It made sense to me that if a person had mostly B's they would get a certificate saying "B On a Roll" like, "hey you're getting a lot of b's you're on a roll".

When my neighbor got a D on his report card, I asked him if there was a D "On a roll" and he punched me. Lessons learned the hard way.

I was a kid in the 60's, and used to believe that, because male hippies had long hair, all female hippies must have short hair. I just thought the whole point of being a hippie was to be contrary.

I used to believe that if i somehow figured out how to cut a hole in the TV while cartoons were on I would be able to reach my hand through (or maybe just step in if the hole was big enough) that I would turn into a cartoon.

I once thought that when cats curled up into a ball to fall asleep, that they were then "stuck" like that for at least a few minutes, which is why they had to stretch when they woke up. I also thought that when a cat was asleep curled up in this way, they looked just like Russian hats. I thought that since my cat was curled in a ball fast asleep, I had just enough time to put her on top of my head and turn her into a Russian hat. My cat put a quick stop to this notion by immediately running down my back with her claws out.

When I was little I used to lay on the ground and look up at the sky. I swore I could see the earth turning, because I thought clouds were stationery so the movement I was seeing must be the earth spinning slowly.

I used to think the message on some TV shows that said "Viewer discretion advised" meant you were supposed to be discreet about it and not tell anyone you watched it.

I once won a goldfish at the fair that only lasted a couple of weeks before it died, so my parents and I flushed it down the toilet. After that I thought that you could flush away any pets that you didn"t want anymore. My gran used to have a little black poodle that I hated so when I was round at her house once I tried to flush it down the toilet.

During school christmas dinners everyone used to get a chicken drumstick - I remember thinking what a terrible waste of the rest of the chicken it was.
