In my grandfathers house, there was a room at the back down a dark hall which was always locked because it had his record colllection in it, but i thought it was full of skeletons and my sister said it was full of monkeys

Until I learned that minor and miner were homonyms, I thought that the reason miners could not buy tobacco was because it would be dangerous to light a match around dynamite.

When my brother and I were younger, my mother didn't want us wandering around in the grocery store and getting into things. For that reason, she told us that it was illegal to get out of the shopping cart. "What about the other children that are out of the cart?" we asked. "Their mommies are going to be arrested."

I used to believe that at night when I was asleep all my furniture including my bed was replaced with identical copies by the fairies. I started putting a cross in pen on my bed to fool them. They obviously sussed it though because they always copied that too.

At the age of five I overheard my fifteen year old brother say "We have to go plant Uncle Dick today", in regards to the cremated remains of my Uncle, whose funeral was that day.

I surmised, and believed for several years, that trees grew from people. People died and were "planted", at which time they grew in to trees...

I used to think that the world was a person, and that earthquakes were caused by the world farting. It only seemed natural then, for me to asume that volcano's were the world being sick.

During our long journeys in the car to the annual family holiday in Wales, my brother and I would argue the whole way, (as all siblings do). To keep us quiet my Dad told us to play "spot the dead donkey"; thus the journey was spent looking out of the window for a donkey on its back with all legs in the air!

When I was about 5, I thought that apples were made in factories. Every time I would eat one, I would first examine it and try to find a seam in the skin. It was the most baffling thing to me. My father later told me that we went to an apple festival where I watched the apples go by on a conveyor belt. Apparently that's where I got the idea. :)
